Since their breakthrough single in 2000 with “Indigo Girl” South African rock icons Watershed have built their way up to be one of the most respected and decorated bands to come out of the Southern Tip of Africa. Their distinctive melodic guitar sounds blend with the sultry tones of lead singer and songwriter Craig Hinds voice to create a soothing and classic rock sound that is easily recognisable and yet ut- terly unique. Their albums and singles have consistently been rewarded with gold and platinum status both locally and abroad but Watershed pride themselves on being a touring band and always have a full gig schedule with loyal and vociferous support wherever they play out.
Acoustic rock outfit Watershed emerged as one of the most successful South African exports of their generation when the single “Indigo Girl” topped the Ger- man pop charts. Formed in Johannesburg in 1998, Watershed was the vehicle of singer/songwriter Craig Warren Hinds, a former high school English and history major.
