Watasun: the name comes from “Water” and “Sun”, two elements that work off each other to give life. They haven’t always been a duo and they can switch into a full band for live performances and recording if it calls for it. The energy and sound that comes from this compact, yet charming, setup is remarkable and memorable to all those watching the performance.

Reid and Adam try to keep it fresh after six years of playing music together. The name Watasun also represents community and culture. The music is described as funky, folky, beach music. Based out of Vancouver this duo creates a fusion of pop music using any genre they can to express themselves in an upbeat and positive fashion. They have become the official sound of Vancouver Tourism with their song, ‘It’s You’ as the theme song for their new marketing campaign. Watasun perform shows and events that cater to anyone looking for an upbeat and positive attitude. Being genuine and true to the organics of art seem to bring out the best in their live performances. A community is built when these two highly talented rhythmic artists hit the stage. People feel free to sing and dance to the energies that Watasun create with the crowd.
