Australian multi instrumental artist C.WATTS, methodically constructs modern dark pop overflowing with texture and attitude. Rich in inspiration and influence from artists like The Weeknd, Post Malone, Halsey & 5SOS.
In 2015, with just one single to his name, Watts featured on the iconic MTV Brand New which boasts alumni such as Sam Smith, Anne-Marie and Conrad Sewell. With a tread beginning to form in Watts’ tires, 2016 saw the young artist release “Wrong or Right feat. Amy Sheppard” of ARIA Award-winning band Sheppard.
With his star on an upwards trajectory, Watts’ exposure continued to develop at both Australian commercial radio and television. In 2017, Watts opened, for arguable the most prolific musician of our time – none other than Elton John. The following year, Watts shared the stage with Robbie Williams at A Day On The Green’s sold out Victorian leg.
After a forced hiatus due to the passing of his best mate and a couple of years practically living in the studio creating a barrage of demos, C.WATTS released the first tracks off his upcoming EP, “Over U” & “LICK IT”. Watts’ new offering will show a side his fans are yet to see, all the while honouring his musical roots.
“‘Fortune Cookie’ is a track I wrote inspired by my long-distance relationship during the Covid lockdown here in Australia. Unfortunately this took it’s toll and I didn’t need a crystal ball or fortune cookie to know where it was leading.”
