Artist Portrait

Water & Power

Band,
R&B/Soul

The group WATER & POWER was founded by songwriters Warren Sams Jr. and William Peele Jr. around 1972. The name came from (Warren & Peele) first letters of their names. Warren and Peele had already individually or collectively written songs for Natalie Cole, Ben Vereen, Sisters Love, Young Hearts, Judy Jones, Whispers, Jackson Sisters, The Ballads, Freddie Huges and Sylvester & The Hot Band, before the album of Water & Power was recorded. At that time Sams was working as a vocal arranger and coach for many music record producers. So he and Peele would try their songs on some of these groups and the songs that didn’t fit them. the band singers are: Warren Sams Jr., Rachel Sanders, Christine Adams Tripp (Warren’s sister). Water & Power single Mr. Weatherman has appeared on the Fast Funky and Fantastic, For The Ladies, Beam 70’s Soul Funk, compilations and many European bootleg copies. The group is still receiving air play in the U.K. and plenty other countries, their classic among the dramatic emotional soul on the dance floor is high on the list. Other songs from the album which been receiving great attention is “Ain’t No Hurt“,” If You Don’t Want Me“, ”I Can Find A Way To Your Heart” and “Just For Alittle While“. Water & Power with lead singer Rachel Sanders are putting their act back together and getting ready to except show gigs. Also their working on new material.
