Watershed may now be South Africa’s leading acoustic rock group, with a string of platinum and gold albums and awards to its name – but when its debut single ‘Indigo Girl’ surged up South Africa’s charts back in 2000, it was hard to predict just how successful the group would be.

At the time of the song’s release – on Watershed’s debut album ‘In the Meantime’ – the country hardly seemed a place to give real traction to a band who found their footing in the melodic notes and rhythms of acoustic rock.

Kwaito was still in its chest-beating prime, hip-hop was finding a homegrown form, Gospel remained a compelling draw card, Afrikaans pop was more popular than ever and, if anything, rock music seemed most likely to succeed when it came to global chart genres. But, over a decade after the release of that first album, Watershed are striding ahead, in 2010 alone playing the prestigious South By Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, Canadian Music Week and a number of dates in Europe, racking up more international releases for their studio albums.
