Multi-instrumental singer/songwriter Levi Weaver recently packed up his house and bought an RV for his family to travel the country with him in on tour. Weaver’s perpetual on-the-move lifestyle helps fuel the churn of the core concepts (young love, marriage, marital separation, introspection, mature love, marital reconciliation, and death) explored on his latest and most affecting album, Your Ghost Keeps Finding Me (Rock Ridge Music, release date – May 13, 2014), and his brand of post-folk is grounded in emotional authenticity, thematic ties, and literate lyrics. Live, he re-imagines these creations as a one-man band, intriguing audiences with loop pedals, dual mics, and a violin bow, which he occasionally applies to his guitar strings. A tireless troubadour, Weaver has averaged 200 shows a year, often covering upwards of 50,000 miles in travel.

Music has been pumping through Alex Arciniega’s blood since she she started dancing to The Cranberries at 7 months old. She began playing guitar and writing songs at the age of 10 and her talent has never ceased to amaze since the day she picked up a guitar. She is a senior at Pine Creek High School and is in the middle of the college application process from Vanderbilt University to Azusa Pacific University where she wants to study music. Alex is excited for the future and to see where her passion is going to take her.

From solo performances to band collaborations, Waterbear has been brought about through the intention to mix styles, genres, songwriting concepts and talent from different Colorado Springs musicians. United by the songwriting blue prints and vocal work of Kellie Palmblad, Water Bear creates and eclectic and unique sound with passion in the face of an ever changing platform of collaborators.  In its current configuration, Waterbear also features the bass, keys, and vocals of Brett Andrus with percussion by Joel Brown.
