8 Ball Aitken - High Water

8 Ball Aitken - High Water
8 Ball Aitken has been bringing funky, foot stomping energy with a blend of swamp-blues party vibes to venues and festivals worldwide for more than a decade. He has garnered recognition across genres hitting #1 on the country charts and #2 on the blues charts in his country of birth Australia.

8 Ball has been USA based for six years playing 220+ gigs a year. ‘Swamp Blues’ was recorded in the Texas Hill Country through an analogue 70’s tape machine for warm guitar tones and cool Hammond organ. A salute to the rhythms of the Deep South, it is 8 Ball’s most stripped back recording. ‘High Water’ and ‘Mama’s Cookin’ were co-written with friend and 100% certified Texas Bluesman, Guthrie Kennard.

"I first saw him when he was young, hairy and straight outa Brisbane. Now he’s all growed up and going global. Unstoppable!”
Ross Wilson

"8 Ball is not an act any band wants to follow! ....even a 5 piece band will have to do some quick and serious note pounding to get 8-ball's vibe off the stage, it just hangs in the air long after he is gone.....he's a freakin solo red headed infector...!"
Mitch Lind, Riverhawk Festivals, Florida

About this track...

The floodgates have opened with new single 'High Water' from 8 Ball Aitken's 'Swamp Blues' album. 8 Ball Aitken wrote the song with 100% certified Texas bluesman Guthrie Kennard in Dallas and recorded it in the Hill Country near Austin, TX. It is a deep South Mississippi kind of groove with the promise coming rain.
