Living Waters

 

 

Living Waters started as a house music ministry group at a retreat center in MA in 1976. In imitation of Lighthouse in Ann Arbor it expanded to a full production with dance, drama, lighting and sound production. Travelling in a converted bus LW played in at least 8 states, including Yankee Stadium, the World Marriage Encounter Convention, Hartford Civic Center and more. Over the decades they developed a very unique Christian rock style that has been described as “uplifting” and “inspirational”.

 

 

There were many highlights: the song “Peter the Rock” was presented to and blessed by Pope John Paul II at the hands of Ambassador Ray Flynn. Living Waters played and sang with Dana and John Michael Talbot. Eventually, the group became a faith family, many members marrying other members in the group & having a lot of talented kids.

 

 

Now, the band continues to meet and pray together. Over recent years LW has achieved amazing success on the Internet. The band has been featured on Windows Media and the ReverbNation main page. After four decades of continuous existence as a band, they have achieved their long-term goal of a digital album release, “Refresh” on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and other sites. There is also a collection of Christmas classics entitled “The Joy” that is pouring out to refresh hearts and souls.

 

 

And in 2015, a brand new two-song EP, “Alive Again”, is out on major outlets and attracting major attention.

 

 

In 2016, a collection of recent work entitled “Still Flowing” was released.

JoJo Worthington

JoJo Worthington

 

JoJo Worthington is an independent Folk/ Alternative artist from Waterloo, Ontario known for her avid songwriting and dynamic use of the ukulele. By using loops, reverbs, delays and even distortion, JoJo creates a euphoric atmosphere that has never been heard before on the ukulele. With her infectiously catchy and whimsical melodies, this pink-headed chick can capture the heart of any audience. Growing up in a musical family, JoJo became obsessed with music at a very young age by first being influenced to musical theatre and classical music. At age eight, JoJo began taking singing lessons and by the time she was 14, had already performed in over 15 musical productions and events. At this time, JoJo began writing songs on guitar in a local band, but decided at 16, she wanted to go solo, this time with the ukulele.

 

With now over 10 years of performance experience, JoJo has won several local and international songwriting competitions. Some include: Best Song and Best Folk at the 2014 Toronto Independent Music Awards, the 2014 Barrie Folk Songwriting Competition, the 2013 Fanshawe’s Got Talent the Spring 2013 Indie International Songwriting Competition, the 25th Waterloo Region’s Leading Edge Award, the 2012 4th Annual Maxwell’s Music House Songwriting Competition, the 2012 songoftheyear.com, and more. In April 2014, JoJo was also selected to be a featured artist at the July 2014 Mariposa Folk Festival in Orillia, Ontario.

 

In 2012, JoJo released her first EP, “SOON” which features six original compositions. The album includes a variety of sounds such as Jazz, Folk, Electro-Pop and Space-Rock. Each song is a personal memory from JoJo’s life, yet the songs from “SOON” are universal in their tone and composition, making the album both reflective and unique.

 

In Dec 2013, JoJo released her first Christmas EP, “O Christmas – A Yuletide Collection”, which is a one of a kind, three track compilation of joyous and stimulating covers. Both albums have received radio play all over Canada including 91.5 The Beat and CBC Radio 1 and U.S stations including Broken World Radio, Branson World Radio, Women of Substance Radio and more.

 

In January 2015, JoJo released her long anticipated full-length album, “7”. This eleven-track album includes a whirlwind of sounds coming at you in all different directions, creating a potpourri of brightly coloured, strange and enticing melodies. This album includes JoJo’s two singles, “Werewolf”, and “Amadeus”.

 

JoJo has performed extensively throughout Ontario. Being a true Canadian artist, she has had the privilege of collaborating and performing with other Canadian artists such as: Craig Cardiff, The Great Lake Swimmers, Jacob Moon, Courage My Love, Calum Graham, Jake Robertson, Ambre McLean, The Vaudevillian and more.

Salty Moses

Salty Moses

 

An upbeat song about a topic impacting nearly every living organism on Earth. Great Country flavor mixed with a lot of truth – and even a dash of political sarcasm. A highly unique voice carries the melody – a voice you will want to hear again and again – as unique as Adam Levine’s and Ed Sheeran’s.

 

I wrote this song during 2016 and had it professionally recorded in April 2017 before the Trump Administration backed out of the Paris agreement – thus making the song somewhat prophetic.  I have studied the Climate Change issue a great deal, and have been trained to be a speaker/presenter by the Climate Reality Project.

 

My goal in writing the song was to bring about an awareness of the Climate Change issue – hopefully encouraging conversations about it, and acceptance of the scientific findings.  As Neal deGrasse Tyson stated – this is “Objective” science at this point – meaning it is true whether we believe it or not.

 

Climate Change is both a concern and an opportunity at the same time.  Similar to the industrial revolution, climate change is creating an energy revolution – and fossil fuels are being phased out in favor of renewable energy. This is projected to create a lot of jobs as there is so much to do – and it makes economic sense.  It is now cheaper to fix the problem than to continue doing business as usual.

 

Fossil fuels no longer have a monopoly on transportation – electric cars and fuel cells are here and are becoming more popular.  Utilities are no longer monopolies – individuals and businesses can generate their own power with solar panels.  Changes in agriculture are turning agricultural practices that have been used for 150 years, upside down.  Large agricultural chemical manufacturers are racing to figure out ways to support the changes that are taking place.
