Living Waters started as a house-music-ministry group at a MA based retreat center in 1976. Imitating "Lighthouse", based in Ann Arbor, MI, "Living Waters" grew into a full production of music, dance and drama, with full lighting and sound production. Traveling in a converted school bus, LW played across the states, at locations including Yankee Stadium, the World Marriage Encounter Convention, Hartford Civic Center and more. Over the decades they developed a very unique Christian rock style that has been described as "uplifting" and "inspirational".
There were many highlights: the song “Peter the Rock” was presented to and blessed by Pope John Paul II at the hands of Ambassador Ray Flynn. LW performed with Dana and John Michael Talbot. LW supported and performed at Covenant House in NYC. Eventually, the group became a faith family, many members marrying other members in the group and having a lot of talented kids.
Over recent years LW has achieved amazing success on the Internet. The band has been featured on Windows Media and the ReverbNation main page. After four decades of continuous existence as a faith family, they have achieved their long-term goal of a digital album release, “Refresh” (on ITunes, Amazon, mp3 and other sites). There is a collection of Christmas classics entitled "The Joy" that is pouring out to refresh hearts and souls. In 2015 LW released an award-winning two-song EP, "Alive Again". In 2016, a collection of recent work entitled "Still Flowing" was released. 2019 brought us the release of of our first full-length studio-produced album,"Overflow".
