Video: Nick Waterhouse – “I Can Only Give You Everything”


[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

California-based producer Nick Waterhouse may be a newcomer but he’s certainly already creating a space for himself within the realm of vintage soul.

His dedication to preserving a vintage sound is impressive when you consider his technique, which includes “entirely vintage analog equipment, open-reel tape machines, lacquer cutting machines, and even hand letter-pressed labels.”

If you dig Mark Ronson or Mayer Hawthorne, you need to pay attention to this dude.

Also, grab his EP, Is That Clear, that dropped a couple months ago and keep a lookout for a full album out in 2012!
