Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
After a few years away from the music scene, R&B Jazz/Funk band BREAK-WATER has reunited and come back stronger than ever, ready to continue a musical journey that many felt was left unfinished. Though some missed the artistry of the band that has since been sampled by Daft Punk, as well as Kindred The Family Soul with Snoop Dogg, they were still able to establish one of the most solid, devoted, and loving fan bases that continues to exist and support them to this day. Five of the eight original members of the Arista recording act are back: Gene Robinson Jr., Lead Vocals, Jimmy Jones, Drums/Vocals, John "Dutch" Braddock, Percussion, Greg Scott Woodwinds/Vocals, and Steve Green, Bass/Vocals have come together for a second go-round of Funk, great love songs and jazz grooves that made them a regular on the music scene here in the region and places near and far.
Happy to be back—armed with new songs and solid grooves, Breakwater has set out to satisfy the thirst of those devoted followers as well as bringing in a whole new listening audience of those who just never got the chance to experience their unique mix of R&B jazz funk featuring top notch horns, easy melodies, and pulsating grooves. So if you ever have the opportunity to check them out live, it promises to be an unforgettable experience. The newest release, "For The Last Time" can be purchased digitally or on CD at cdbaby.com.
