Nick Waterhouse is a man working a sound rooted in the early Soul and R&B that once piped out of the cathouses, clubs and dancehalls from coast to coast in pre-Beatles America. But forget nostalgia, the seam Waterhouse is working is a far cry from any kind of prefabricated ‘retro’ trip — this is happening here, this is happening now. If last years “Some Place” 45 acted as both calling card and promise of a new sound and voice on the scene, then Times All Gone is the fulfillment of that promise.

Growing up south of Los Angeles in Huntington Beach, CA — the famed beach town internationally known as Surf City USA — Waterhouse found inspiration not in the punk rock lineage that has so often defined the South Bay and Orange County coasts since Black Flag, but in the bohemian Jazz and R&B clubs that haunted those same beachside communities throughout the 50s and 60s. In short, he fell down the rabbit hole seeking out vintage Jazz, R&B, Soul and Pop 45s. With Time’s All Gone he’s emerged to join their ranks.
