Brian J. Waters has been a fixture in the LA music scene since moving there from Miami, FL in 1988. His first gig was at Bleecker Bob’s Records LA, where he spent the better part of a decade specializing in buying and selling vintage vinyl. In the early 90s, Waters joined fellow Miami transplants in the magnetic punk rock band “Coma-tones,” and then went on to form his own soul-inspired, high energy rock-n-roll combos “The Countdowns” and “The Flash Express,” where the LA Weekly called him “a hopped-up locomotive, screaming into his Telecaster pickups, luring women in the audience and shaking his God-given white ass.” (Oh Good Lord!!!)
