Waterplanet is the work of imagistic songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Millie Landrum and James Hesser. With driving melodies and harmonies, they share vocals and alternate on acoustic guitar, percussion, and other instruments.  Veterans of the Baltimore Music Scene, Waterplanet has also toured the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and Southeast. 

Following recent releases Ghost-Hypnotic and Songs for Holiday Living I & II, Waterplanet debuted their latest EP Never Far in fall 2020. Their playfully introspective songs blur the lines between pop, rock, and psych-folk – frequently haunting, yet strangely familiar.

Their cinematic storytelling has been compared to: She and Him, Courtney Barnett, The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Violent Femmes, Pixies, Patti Smith, X, and other ground-breaking artists. When Shelly Yakus, engineer to John Lennon, U2, and countless others, heard Waterplanet's recordings, he declared them ahead of their time, and said they conjured animated movies in his mind.
