Al Shalliker

Al Shalliker is a singer-songwriter and musician from the city of Plymouth. The lead songwriter for Plymouth band Watershed, who were prolific live performers nationwide over a period of more than 20 years, Al is now producing music as a solo artist. His debut album, ‘Silver Linings’, was released on 26th April 2021.
Watershed’s early music was heavily influenced by reggae and soul but there was always a significant diversity to Al’s songwriting, which gave the band their own distinctive sound. Watershed self-produced their debut album, ‘Moves’, in 1995, which enabled them to secure a record deal. The two albums that followed, ‘Strange Days and Dynamite’ (2002) and particularly ‘The Eyes of Eli Wallach’ (2006), saw the band gradually take on more of a folk-rock style, again marked by the ingenuity of Al’s songcraft.
Al’s solo album, ‘Silver Linings’, which is embellished by a number of guest musicians, featured a fresh reworking of a few of his older songs but is mostly made up of previously unreleased new material. Influenced by the classic songwriters yet highly original, ‘Silver Linings’ is a powerful representation of Al’s inimitable style, made relevant for a new audience.
