Hundred Waters is an American band formed in Gainesville, Florida in October 2011. Both of their albums received much critical praise and reviewers often noted the group’s blend of electronic and organic sounds. The band is composed of Nicole Miglis (vocals, piano, flute), Trayer Tryon (production, electronics, bass) and Zach Tetreault (drums, percussion, trumpet). The group came to prominence in 2012 with the release of their first self-titled album and an unexpected partnership with Skrillex's predominantly electronic OWSLA record label. Hundred Waters wrote and produced most of their second album, The Moon Rang Like a Bell, while on tour with Alt-J, The xx, Julia Holter and others; it was released on May 27, 2014.   Formation and early years   Hundred Waters members Trayer Tryon, Paul Giese, and Zach Tetreault became friends and musical collaborators while attending middle school together in Orlando, Florida. Their personal and musical ties continued from high school to college at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida where they shared a home together. During this period, the trio performed under several different projects and organized local shows in their backyard. Tryon released two solo albums and original artwork on Porter Records between 2010 and 2011 featuring contributions from Zach and Paul.   Tetreault befriended Nicole Miglis after he attended her convocation performance at the University of Florida’s School of Music. Miglis, raised in Melbourne, Florida, was encouraged in her educational and musical pursuits from an early age. She has described her childhood self as quiet and introspective, often spending hours playing her family’s piano. She started songwriting at a young age but did not receive vocal training.Leading up to the formation of Hundred Waters, Nicole earned a degree in piano performance at University of Florida while performing globally as a concert pianist.Miglis self-released a solo EP in March 2012 containing a collection of songs she wrote from 2008 to 2010.   In 2011, Miglis moved into the house Tetreault, Giese, and Tryon had been living and collaborating in since moving to Gainesville.Miglis began dating Tryon, and would later discover that the house was formerly a karate dojo where her parents had first met as aspiring martial artists.During this time, the four were backing fellow Gainesville musician and friend David Levesque’s live sets during early tours for his project Levek. After returning home from a tour with Levek, Hundred Waters and their eponymous debut album began to take shape over the summer of 2011. Despite working day jobs and attending classes, the roommates convened at night to listen and discuss developing songs together.   Hundred Waters (Album)   Hundred Waters first album, Hundred Waters, was first released by independent label, Elestial Sound on February 29, 2012. Elestial also provided them with a vegetable-oil powered school bus used as transportation on their first US tour and SXSW performance during Spring of 2012.   The album’s initial release on Elestial Sound was well received by critics, with Pitchfork giving it an 8.1/10 rating, praising it for its “unapologetic, real-time virtuosity, compositional refinement, and vision."   Following the album’s release the band was invited to take part on Skrillex's Full Flex Express Canadian Train Tour, which featured Skrillex, Diplo, Grimes, and Pretty Lights. Upon returning, the band signed a record deal with OWSLA in August 2012 releasing a remix EP for Thistle featuring remixes from Araabmuzik, Star Slinger and others. One month later on September 25, 2012 OWSLA rereleased Hundred Waters' self-titled album, this time reaching a larger and more diverse audience.   Following the OWSLA re-release, Hundred Waters debuted in the Top 50 on the CMJ 200 radio charts, resulting in a growing fanbase among college-aged listeners and inclusion in Spin Magazine’s 25 Must-See Acts at CMJ 2012. Stereogum included Hundred Waters in their 40 Best New Bands of 2012 and Top 10 Sets of CMJ 2012, stating, “Their arpeggios are classical, their sense of drama and space and volume is post-rock, their time signatures are prog, their delicate and interweaving vocal harmonies are choral. Live their beats were fat, with pockets deep enough to allure the hip-hop heads filtering in and out of whatever room I was watching them in.”   Hundred Waters toured their first album extensively throughout 2012 to 2013, playing over 200 shows including direct support domestically and internationally for Alt-J and The xx. They also co-headlined a US tour with Julia Holter. The New York Times described Hundred Waters live performance as “a watercolor wash of possibilities, a suspension of time, an embrace of textural experiment and open-ended expectations.”
