Life At WaterBear

We believe in empowering the artist.

WaterBear life is about teamwork, respect, nurturing resilience and, most of all, enjoying the ride.

Every single WaterBear musician has their own story to tell, their own path to follow. WaterBear is designed to be a safe place for all to grow artistically, personally and professionally. Reinforced by the conviction that music matters. And still has the power to change the world.
