'A band simply bursting with ideas and refreshingly youthful confidence and exuberance…Wax On Water are a powerful band with an enormous potential'”

— Steve Pilkington, Velvet Thunder


'Wax on Water is now a formidable creative coupling that effortlessly fuses together grunge, electronica, and alternative rock with strings, keyboards and intense guitars to produce a sound that is unequivocally their own.' ”

— Decibel Report


Wax on Water are producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Maya Damaris and Steven Blessing on Guitars. The Alternative Rock duo hail from London and released the critically acclaimed album The Drip in 2022 followed by the latest release of the EP Ghouls & Fiends and In-Betweens... 

Maya Damaris decided to form a band which would evoke the same intense feelings and inspiration that she had growing up when listening to artists like Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, The Cure and Nine Inch Nails. Debut album Procession was initially released by Damaris in 2017, demonstrating an expert ability to channel diverse influences whilst making a sound that was entirely her own. The resulting album acclaim led to to the re-release of 'Procession' in 2018 and a lucrative worldwide distribution deal with The Orchard/Sony Music, for Damaris’ own label, Howling Tempest Records

Perhaps it was fate that, in 2019, Maya encountered like-minded musician, guitarist Steven Blessing and the musical coupling was instantly formidable. The band draw inspiration from the great and good; from bands past and present and from multiple genres – 70s rock, 90s grunge, electronica and industrial. On ‘The Drip’ album, their sound was taken to the next level with the addition of Blessing’s soaring layers of guitar and Damaris’ unique writing and production style, creating a potent musical brew that is, unquestionably, Wax on Water

The Ghouls & Fiends and In-Betweens… EP follows their sophomore album The Drip which was released in the summer of 2022 to universal critical acclaim and solidified Wax on Water’s place as rising stars of the alternative rock scene

The Drip garnered US College radio success for the band and this bold collection of songs follows suit and easily moves between radio friendly tracks like Ghouls & Fiends and Deadbeat Guy to the haunting ballad Part of Me and Guanciale (Mark of the Vampire) and More Than I – the kind of darkly melodic driving rock gems that Wax on Water are known for


'Sonically captivating and emotionally candid' ”
