Multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter, Liv Waters is a young, highly energetic, Nashville based country/pop music sensation. At 21 years old, Liv Waters has already taken country music by storm. Liv Released her debut EP, “In Time” independently in the summer of 2017 full of 5 songs written entirely by Liv herself.

Liv released the song, When The Young Die, off of her EP as a single on December 7th, 2018. She took a non-traditional approach by releasing the single as a fundraiser in order to raise money and awareness for those affected in the thousand oaks tragedy in california this past november. Liv was in California when the shooting took place. She says “I woke up to a text from my mom at 4am asking if everything was okay, you could tell there was a bit of motherly panic in her tone. I was so confused, answered, ‘yes mom, I love you,’ went back to sleep and woke up again at 9am to the local news blowing up about the tragedy that happened only 2 hours from me the night before in Thousand Oaks. I was devastated, this one hit the heart and i knew i had to make a difference somehow” that is when Liv decided to raise money for the families affected in the shooting by releasing her song, When The Young Die, and donating any money made from the song to a charity made by families of thousand oaks. Liv says her goal is to “make a difference, one song at a time.”
During the release, Liv landed on multiple news stations across the country to help chip in and raise money with her. Some stations include Sacramento California’s FOX 40 news, Burlington, Vermont’s ABC 22, and NBC 5 in Bristol Virginia. Waters is proud and humble of the individual’s lives she was able to help heal through the message of the song, as well as the money raised.

"Music is my life--the only thing with me through the high school drama, the highs and lows of life, fights with friends, breakups, loss, the very best and the very worst days of my life. I haven't had anything make me feel quite like I do while I am making music. An indescribable comfort and passion that I wouldn't trade for the world. I want to be that support system and role model for young girls going through the hardships of growing up, bullying, and inspire them that anything is possible if you put your mind to it."
