Waldo Witt Releases Retro-synth Single "Crystal Ball"

 

Finding success, happiness and fulfillment as a consistent touring artist can be unique to each and every artist. No one ever knows where the road will take them or how long they will continue to go down the same fork. Put together the time away from home and the long nights spent performing, rehearsing and recording, and then to go and do it all over again to an infinite degree, can often leave one utterly drained. Mr. Waldo Witt has been able to find a perfect medium between the two. After traveling with several acts over the last 10 years, Waldo made the move from Austin, TX to Chapel Hill, NC to be close with his loved one. But alas, he continues to pursue this very thing. 

Under his new solo moniker, Waldo Witt has released only a fragment of his material, sorting through demos recorded while traveling on the road, all of which is pure gold. Labeling himself as a "DIY Hi-Fi Experiment", Mr. Wittenmyer is on a continuous journey into indie-pop fans hearts. Seeking influence, Waldo has created a connection with his Ford Ecoline he has traveled in for years, named Randall. The relationship with his van is one of that of a human and their dog. It's an unbreakable bond that has kept him sane on the lonesome roads over the many, many years onto of the asphalt. 
 
John 'Waldo' Wittenmeyer has delved into the psychedelic dream world to create a beautiful landscape of electronic mellow-pop. His melodies encapsulated around very deep beats keeps your mind in a head space full of fantasy. His low-key and hi-fi mechanics surround you, take you away, and leave you wondering where he'll go from here. With some of his tracks bridging on the hemisphere of Jizz-Jazz, a younger audience will be able to enjoy this just as much as someone who got to live through an era of electronic music revolution.  

The first single released, Crystal Ball, which has also had a subsequent video released, is a quick yet revealing glimpse into the head space of Witt. A deep dive into an 80's time capsule, the video brings elements of several 80's fan favorite movies. It's easy to find where Waldo finds his influence. There's a craving that fans have to bring back special feelings left in yesteryear, and this is a phenomenal hand reaching out to reel in those listeners. The dreamy nature of the video lets the audience take a quick trip into the imagination of Witt.
