Counting renowned musicians such as Bert Berns, Mose Allison, Van Morrison and John Lee Hooker as his musical influences, Waterhouse combines the sounds of R&B, jazz and soul with snarly, post-surf guitar solo to create a unique sound that he could call his own.
Instead of releasing his LP on CD format, Waterhouse chose to release his recorded materials in the form of lacquered hand-pressed vinyl – a true novelty that befits his music – under his own label Pres.
Music too influences Waterhouse’s style. At a glance, his look would remind you of the late Buddy Holly with his tortoiseshell glasses, skinny tie, slim-fit suit and button down shirt. His personal style was also documented by Mr Porter and can be viewed here.
With a style worth emulating, I've compiled some of the current runway-worthy pieces that you could use to get that Mr Waterhouse look with a little twist. Check it out!
