Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival, Adam & Cherish Hamby, Songwriters, SMSWF, Gatlinburg TNThe Dark Waters Project was founded in 2010 and is led by duo Cherish and Adam Hamby. Based out of Nashville, Tennessee, they released their 1st 6 song EP in Nov of 2014 titled “The Rains.” It ended up in the hands of fans all over the globe. They are currently set to release their 2nd full length album titled, “The Darkgrass Sessions” in the summer of 2018. It was produced by Lee Groitzsch and recorded at Skaggs Family Records.
They like to describe their music as Darkgrass. With an original mix of Alternative Rock, Folk and Bluegrass their set is filled with flawless, stirring harmonies, heavily influenced by Classic Folk and Americana groups like Crosby, Stills and Nash, Fleetwood Mac and Modern Folk and Alt Country groups like The Civil Wars and Lady Antebellum. Their music has been described as a, “Good sadness” and “An alt-rock band driven by an array of bluegrass instruments.”
When you see the Dark Waters Project perform, you will hear ballads that “slow-boil” to a soul-stirring, thunderous crescendo, haunting lyrics, bringing up the darkness of loves past, and up-beat, rhythmic bluegrass melodies that will make you want to go out and buy a Mandolin of your own.
The Dark Waters Project has toured all over the Eastern US and Canada and will hopefully be making a stop in a venue near you, although you can often find a few of them playing acoustic gigs around the Nashville area whenever they aren’t on the road.
