Hindsight: the perception of the nature of an event after it has happened or Hindsight, the new release from US’s Uncle Watson Widow. The two are intertwined perhaps even synonymous. Hindsight, available worldwide August 2021, is Uncle Watson’s Widow’s (UWW) first international release and solo project of Jon Epstein (Haymarket Riot, Last Stone Cast, Healing Blues Project) . Epstein is equal parts songwriter, producer and guitarist and, as he puts it, serves as the curator of Hindsight’s carefully selected tracks. Epstein went deep into back catalogues, obscure songs and B sides from artists whose work has influenced the band and all of whom demand a second listen.   

What sets Uncle Watson’s Widow apart is their use of extended range guitars, including 7 string acoustic and electric, baritone, mando-guitar, and Nashville tunings. Interestingly the only keyboard used on Hindsight was piano, ALL other sounds were created strictly with guitars. Finding inspiration in creating new musical collaborations for most of his career, Epstein sees UWW as the perfect culmination of new and classic approaches that are sure to feel innovative and contemporary.
