The band name,Dark Water Rising, originates from the home of its members. Robeson County, known for its rich Lumbee culture, thrives from the nourishment of swamplands and rich, dark water of the Lumber River.
The dark watered swamps are legendary for providing hide outs and escape routes for Native Americans during the Civil War. Driven by the rocking rhythms of Aaron Locklear (drums) and Eric Locklear (bass guitar), the music lends itself and the open floor for anyone willing to let go and spread the energy. As lead guitarist, Corey Locklear graces each of DWR’s songs with passionate, carefully pieced lines and melodies. Described as the "bread and butter" of Dark Water Rising, Ms. Charly Lowry (rhythm guitar/vocals), Ms. Ciera-Dial Locklear (keys/vocals) and Ms. Brittany Jacobs (saxophone/percussion/vocals) grab the lyrics by the horns and deliver with soul, truth, and harmony.
The members of Dark Water Rising complement each other in a special way to create their sound; one that surpasses skill and technique. DWR does not categorize its music into one genre. With a knack for taking whatever comes out and creating music that refreshes the senses, Dark Water Rising has the uncanny ability to successfully crossover into soul, alternative rock, blues, country, and hip-hop.
