Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Erisy Watt released her second album "Eyes Like The Ocean" via American Standard Time in April 2022. Hailed by No Depression as “an exercise in what contemporary folk today sounds like at its peak”, Erisy's music reliably alludes to the sounds of the 60s and 70s but also finds a home in the vintage-tinged indie ether of her more contemporary counterparts. Erisy grew up in Nashville, but it wasn’t until she left for college in California that she started writing songs. Both of these formative settings are present in her creative instinct—Nashville’s knack for a timeless melody and California’s bewildering vastness and dusty free spirit—but upon these sonic bones lives a body of global adventure. Erisy is an environmental professional with a deep fondness for nature and has worked in eclectic locales like Nepal, Thailand, and Indonesia, most often in a more rugged and remote setting. She approaches the music profession with a similar sense of purity; she once toured Europe on foot, guitar on her back. Erisy was based in Portland for over five years and recently moved to Los Angeles. She's currently working on her third full-length album with producer Luke Temple.
