McNally Waters Album Cover

The McNally Waters debut album is now available worldwide in physical form (CD) through Alliance Distribution, and on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon and all major streaming sites.

The 11 songs touch upon blues rock, old school country, New Orleans roots music, moody art songs and more, in a blend that is somehow cohesive and best described as Americana.

The album was recorded in Waters' home studio except for the bass and drums which were recorded in Buenos Aires, using their Argentinian rhythm section (Jorge Araujo on drums and Fede Palmolella on bass). Waters plays all keyboards, accordion and percussion, and McNally plays all guitars, Dobro, mandolin and percussion, and sings the lead and background vocals. Kipp Lennon from the band Venice guests on background vocals, Rich Hinman plays pedal steel on “Abilene”, “Hey Romeo” features Cassidy Turbin on drums and Justin DiCenzo on bass.

McNally Waters is Larry John McNally and Harry Waters.

McNally and Waters' rich musical histories combine into a third entity, McNally Waters. The music is a combination of jazz and country, rock and folk, the music of New Orleans meets the Arkansas flavor of The Band, with traces of Bill Evans and Joni Mitchell as ghosts in the machine, best categorised as Americana.

Larry John McNally is a veteran singer, songwriter and guitarist best known for his memorable songwriting. His songs have been recorded by some of the greatest artists of all time, including The Eagles, Aaron Neville, Bonnie Raitt, Mavis Staples, Rod Stewart and more. His lyrics are literary yet conversational and his guitar playing has been described as "folk-Hendrix."

Harry Waters is a pianist/songwriter and composer. His piano style is influenced by the New Orleans greats Dr John and Professor Longhair. Growing up in London he played the songs of Led Zeppelin, The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers Band and has performed with Marianne Faithful, Ozric Tentacles, Tom Jones, Nick Cave and Dean Ween, as well as fronting and recording an album of jazz as The Harry Waters Band.

He has toured in his father's band, Roger Waters, for the last 15 years, for The Wall and The Dark Side of the Moon tours, and most recently Desert Trip alongside The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Neil Young.

McNally Waters have toured extensively throughout South America during that past two years, and play to sellout crowds of 1500+ people in places such as the renowned "La Usina del Arte" in Buenos Aires. They recently played on "Cruise to the Edge", a rock-cruise that sailed from Florida to Costa Maya and Belize alongside some of the most famous names in Prog Rock, including Steve Rothery, Steve Hackett, Adrien Belew, Dave Kerzner and Carl Palmer !

Both McNally and Waters currently reside in Los Angeles.
