New album out now: "Seven Succulents"

Breathe music. This is the mantra of KiloWatts. Jamie Watts has walked with music his entire life, from the early ages learning to play the piano, to his teenage years singing and learning to sequence, to the present moment as a full-fledged producer and touring artist. A promise was made on a molecular level to share music with the world.

The new KiloWatts album is titled "Seven Succulents", a continuation of his hypnotic 2009 release "Six Silicates". Where "Six Silicates" was a nod to crystals, "Seven Succulents" explores the weird and wonderful world of desert plants, and retains a familiar deep and pulsating dancefloor grooviness. The music thrives and grows from a single seed, winding its roots delicately through sand, communicating through beacons of sound sent across vast arid landscapes. The songs are named after plants he has tended and cared for over the years, and the collection exists as an homage to the wonders of nature - a love note for quiet desert foliage.

Seven Succulents features additional musicians Mike Greenfield (of LOTUS) on drums, Samuel Wexler on violin, Timmayo Sheehan on flute, Lynne Watts on vocals, and “The We’re Home Family Drum Brigade’ crammed in his living room making a whole lot of noise.

KiloWatts music is always melodic, inventive, powerful, and persistent. He's always looking for a new way to craft peaks and troughs, new ways to ebb and flow, tugging and pulling at heartstrings, building tension and finding that sweet, sweet release. There's always a wry glimmer in his eye, and a deeply smiling knowingness expressed in his music. He's intent on communicating directly with his listeners through sound, eye to eye, heart to heart.
Currently living in Philadelphia, he finds inspiration every morning at 9:00am sharp. He loves a wide open empty canvas, the excitement of uncertainty propelling him to create. He enjoys gardening and tending his plants in his indoor "Grow Cove", an LED-powered warm happy place for his ever-expanding collection of succulents. When not making music or gardening, he can be found backpacking deep in remote wildernesses like The Canyonlands, Loyalsock, and Monongahela.
