In 2013, Strong Water lead singer and guitarist Greg Brennan finished his American Literature course with something better than an A: the perfect name, borrowed from the Puritans, for his whiskey drinking, Americana/Folk band.
Like a good shot of its namesake, Strong Water is smooth with a bite, garnering inspiration from artists such as The Head and the Heart, Mumford and Sons, and The Lone Bellow, yet remaining unapologetic and unafraid to break the conventions of its genre with a pulsing drum beat or a reggae breakdown.
Strong Water graduated from the term college band after releasing an EP in 2014 that received overwhelming support from Harrisonburg's thriving underground music community. In 2016, Strong Water responded with a 14 track self-titled album and began touring the Mid Atlantic, gaining attention from larger venues and artists, all while holding down full-time jobs.
Following the release of their single, Bearfoot, in Oct. 2017, and almost a year of being off the road as band members got married, Strong Water preps to release their second LP Beartfoot in September 2018 and hit the road again.
