Kristin Waterson

By Kristin Waterson

Things are heating up for this Stroud, Ont native, Kristin Waterson, known in the Toronto music scene as hey!dw. A writer, director, producer, musician and DJ, she has been added to the roster of performers for Oro-Medonte’s WayHome Festival among the likes of Neil Young, Kendrick Lamar and Sam Smith. Waterson has been making moves and a name for herself DJing around Toronto for 2 years, most recently playing The Hoxton.

Hey!dw’s signature style is a mix of bouncy British beats, 90’s pop art and live drum solos that makes it impossible to stand still. Hosting the monthly event Home Brew at The Boat in Kensington Market every third Thursday of the month, Waterson has created a strong fan base that can’t get enough of her high energy performances.

Leading up to WayHome Waterson has been busy in pre-production for the second and third seasons of her web series, Thats My DJ. As you can guess, the series is based on her lived experiences in the electronic dance music (EDM) scene in Toronto. Its a high-octane, sexy and intimate look at the stories of the electronic music community.
You can catch hey!dw at the Silent Disco from 5pm-7pm on Friday July 24th at WayHome.
