Of his music, Joseph Waters writes, "I have always been interested in writing music that connects with people and yet pushes boundaries. The question raised by music in the 20th century is how far can you push boundaries without losing the ability to connect with your audience. In my music I work at bridging this gap. I am also fascinated by style and am drawn to explore the musical languages of the past and present as well as the far reaches of the globe, thus my works have a very eclectic range of surfaces."

"Joseph Waters' music speaks directly to listeners...stimulating theatrical, chromatic, often songful, frequently fast and exotically colored." -- David Stabler (The Oregonian)
