Broadwaters styles and moods at the New Brighton Farmer’s Market.

The Waters are Here

Matt Day and Jessie Rose are Broadwaters, playing a vast variety of styles and moods. The duo formed shortly after meeting, in late 2019, when Jessie was recording Matt as part of her SAE degree in Audio. They were bunkered down in their home studio for the better part of 2020 and are currently working on a music video for their next release ‘Home’. Matt says it’s been  a tough year. ‘Trying to manage finances as a musician during a global crisis hasn’t been easy. Having the opportunity to play live again means I have the ability to sustain myself, not just in the body but in the mind and spirit.’

Get an early start to see Broadwaters at the New Brighton Farmers Market on Tuesday from 8am.
