Chance Waters is not a typical hip hop artist and his music is not typical hip hop fare. Hailing from
the cultural hub of Sydney’s inner west the outspoken vegan and self confessed internet addict has
established a uniquely recognisable brand of hip hop backed by intelligent lyricism and delicately
layered production. His music fuses elements from a wide array of genres with pop hooks, harmonies,
swathes of live instrumentation and world class production from Adelaide producer One
Above (Hilltop Hoods).
Chance has been labelled an ‘intelligent lyricist and a masterful storyteller’ (The Australian) and ‘one
of Australia’s brightest and more creative lyricists’ (The AU Review) and has built an enviable
reputation and cult following for his live show. Backed by his touring band ‘The Grey: Starring Liam
Neeson’ (Liam Neeson is of course their laptop) and flush with banjo, keytar, iPad solos and
excessive swearing (always with an infectious smile) the energetic performances have made them a
festival favourite, playing shows to packed out amphitheatres across the country.
