The Waterboys are a folk rock band formed in 1983 by Mike Scott. They dissolved in 1993 when Scott departed to pursue a solo career but they reformed in 2000 and continue to release albums and tour worldwide. Scott emphasises a continuity between The Waterboys and his solo work, saying that “to me there’s no difference between Mike Scott and the Waterboys; they both mean the same thing. They mean myself and whoever are my current travelling musical companions”. The early Waterboys sound was dubbed “The Big Music” after a song on their second album, A Pagan Place. This style was described by Scott as “a metaphor for seeing God’s signature in the world”. In the late 1980s the band became significantly more folk influenced. The Waterboys eventually returned to rock and roll and have released both rock and folk albums since reforming. Their songs, largely written by Scott, often contain literary references and are frequently concerned with spirituality.
