Artist of the day: Black Water


Last year, teenage garage rock group Black Water won a Battle of the Bands at Durant High School. "We didn’t even really know each other, we were just going to play Battle of the Bands and that was going to be it," said singer Gabe De Alba. "We started practicing and we ended up winning the competition, which made us realize we were good together.'

And their sound? "We kind of have our own genre, and it’s changing. The more we write music the more different elements go into it. It is hard rock, hard blues with a Southern feel to it."
