Jointly produced by Watson and well-known broadcaster and musician Nick Bollinger, South Pacific Soul is virtually a roll-call of the Wellington musical fraternity, featuring members of such well-known Wellington outfits as Trinity Roots, Twinset, Southside of Bombay and the Windy City Strugglers on a set of ten brand new originals.
The track 'All Going Wrong' won first place in the Blues section of the International Songwriting Competition.
