"When singer-songwriter Caleb Stevens, front man for the band OF WATER, steps on stage and strums the first chord on his guitar, plays the first bar on his harmonica, or sings the first note of a song, you might think he's channeling the great Bob Dylan. Maybe it's the harmonica. Maybe it's the folk undertones permeating through his vocal chords. Or, maybe that particular Travelling Wilbury is one of Caleb's many musical influences."
"Caleb is a melting pot of styles. In addition to channeling Dylan, Caleb proudly proclaims that he has The Beatles in his DNA, and that The Strokes have also shaped his sound over the years. If you listen closely, you can also hear modern indie rock influences subtly making appearances... undertones of Wilco, Alt-J, Portugal. The Man, Band of Horses and The National. These artists may have influenced Caleb, but he has created his own unique sound..."
"On each stage that Caleb performs on, he not only brings his distinctive sound, but he also brings an openness that only authentic singer-songwriters can. His lyrics are the stories of his past ... that are meaningful to him. 'I love the gift of music is not having a visual that allows you to put a curtain in front of things - of being able to write a song that sounds happy, but the lyrics are sad. You really have to listen because it is an extra dimension of a complicated piece.' 'Promised Blankets' is one of the songs on his EP by the same name, and it manifests that extra dimension. 'I'm not the same that I am on most days / today I've no place in the rain / but I can't complain / through my window I've heard traces of such lovely refrain.' 'Promised Blankets lures the listener into a false sense of comfort. Maybe it's the music. Maybe it's the lyrics. Maybe it's both."
"Caleb embodies the troubadours of old and new with his unique sound coupled with deep, meaningful autobiographical lyrics. He is a refreshing addition to any playlist."
- Ashley Kettle, 'Ville A Rock & Roll Magazine
