Our Wellington Music collection is currently unavailable on our catalogue due to the Central Library closure. We're working on options for making it available again and as soon as it is, we'll update this site.

We say:

My Dear Watson is the musical project of songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Simon Watson. Watson released the EP Promises in October 2017, recording with songwriter/producer Geoff Duncan in Nashville, Tennessee.

Several tracks on Promises were initially part of Watson’s Sketchbook series, beginning as vocal and guitar-only demos before being developed. Watson has described this as “practicing in public” – a process he also used in 2010 when he released a song per fortnight.

My Dear Watson’s music has been described as “combining rock licks, folk-like sensibilities and outright eccentricity… a melting pot of sounds both melodic and experimental.” He has performed with artists including Sunbird7, Jim Wisp, Jake Stokes, Hault and Retrospect.
