Indie signer-songwriter Mike Waters has been busy collaborating with fans from far and wide to create his new music video, ‘Feels Like Home‘.
Melbourne’s favourite ginger genius reached out to fans to submit their favourite festival photos, and the result is a fun, festive and even moving, collage of people’s experiences.
Working with filmmakers Max Rawicz and Jam Nawaz, Waters’ simple video is the perfect accompaniment for a track which was inspired by a trip to Splendour In The Grass.
About the release, Waters has said: “I was lucky enough to get away for a weekend to Splendour in the Grass and it was a huge injection of inspiration and motivation. I got lost in the vibe of this huge temporary city that just appeared in the wilderness and I was overcome by this incredible sense of nostalgia that I remember from when I was younger. When I came home I just knew exactly what I wanted to write about – I wrote ‘Feels Like Home’ about what home means to me, about having this new home, about how feeling music in a crowd is this unique, shared human experience, and about writing music from the heart.”
The ‘Feels Like Home’ national tour kicks off in October. Talented Brisbane folk-singer Robbie Miller will be joining as main support. Then, Waters has been invited to make his UK stage debut at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters in November.
The tour caps of a massive 6 months for Mike Waters which has seen him support international acts, be selected to showcase at BIGSOUND, announced on NYE on the Hill, ink a management deal with WAU Management (Vance Joy, Amity Affliction, Kite String Tangle) and even have his first single ‘Gambling Man’ praised by Perez Hilton.
