Calgary-based rock quintuplet, Waterfront, is once again making headlines with their latest single, “Keeping You Alive,” which was released on September 22, 2023. The band, known for their powerful rock sound, is poised to take the music scene by storm with this new track.
Waterfront, consisting of lead vocalist Dan Sequeira, bassist and backing vocalist Tanner Cyr, lead guitarist Devin Taylor, rhythm guitarist Ryan Ross, and drummer Benjamin Forseth, is no stranger to the music industry. Their forthcoming unreleased 5-track EP, produced by Quinn Cyrankiewicz of Royal Tusk fame, has been highly anticipated, especially after Quinn's successful production of Calling All Captains' hit EP, “Nothing Grows Here,” and their debut album, “Slowly Getting Better.”
“I Wanna Run (feat. Gutter King),” the band's recent single, marks a significant turning point for Waterfront. Collaborating with local scene veterans Gutter King, who bring their 12K monthly listening audience to the table, Waterfront is making bold moves towards their long-term goals. The single, in many ways, reflects the band's journey as they navigate their signing with Affiant Records and the personal struggle of breaking away from toxic relationships to find a new path and self-discovery.
Dan Sequeira, the band's lead vocalist, commented on the song's inspiration, saying, “It's easier to take it on the chin sometimes than it is to ask for the respect you deserve, and I feel we captured that energy and then some with this song.”
Waterfront's sound has evolved significantly, and they're not looking back. Their earlier independent releases in 2021 and 2022, combined with local performances in Western Canada, have paved the way for this exciting new direction. With regional radio play in western Canada and over half a million streams across their releases, Waterfront is gaining traction. Their song “Three Years Later” alone has garnered nearly 200K streams.
Fans of bands like Nickelback, Hinder, Billy Talent, Three Days Grace, Theory of a Deadman, and Black Veil Brides will undoubtedly find Waterfront's music right up their alley. The band's dedication to their craft and their commitment to pushing musical boundaries are sure to keep them on the radar of rock enthusiasts worldwide.
In the ever-evolving world of rock music, Waterfront is a band to watch. Their unique blend of powerful vocals, punchy lyrics, and driving instrumentals is sure to resonate with both old and new fans alike. As they continue to explore their new sound and reach new heights, Waterfront is undoubtedly making waves in the rock scene.
