HOTWATER TO HEADLINE CHIANG MAI INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL
Hot Water has been slated as a headline act in the Chiang Mai Festival in Thailand.
"Hot Water is the first band to break out the big performance guns. If I was a muso I’d study the onstage handbook of Donovan Copley (vox/guitar). Complete with members in traditional garb and drenched in township vibes circa 1950, they win at festival life."

"Hot Water is perfect for overseas audiences. Their music is strongly South African without being too obvious and hey shoo wow. Copley’s music has strong influences of blues, kwela, maskandi, rock and even sakkie sakkie...there is no doubt that the man is home brewed for international success."
"You can mention I don't take sugar," he smiles, "I'm just practicing for being really famous. You can say how 'He doesn't take sugar with his cappuccino by the way. And he's an asshole!'"
