“Woody sounds like Willie Nelson singing a Johnny Cash song in a 1930’s Alabama Juke Joint. Wildly Addicting! One Magical Album!” – No Depression

About Woody Pines:

There’s a rambler at the heart of Woody Pines, a rounder nestled into the heart of his music. It’s the kind of rambler that motored Robert Johnson’s car, the vagabond spirit that pushed Kerouac on frenetic road trips across the US, the aimless soul that rode trains with Woody Guthrie. This trickster character is the very core of American roots music, and Woody Pines knows it well. His songs are filled with these characters: wandering broken hearts, swaggering pimps, crusty hobos, but he himself has lived these stories. Woody’s journey has taken him from street corners and smoky bars to folk festivals and the Grand Ole Opry, but he started with Bob Dylan.
As a child, unable to read music, he made up new tunes from the Bob Dylan songbooks around his house. Later, he hitchhiked with a friend to visit his heroes such as Pete Seeger, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot and Utah Philips. By the age of nineteen, he’d already played in forty-nine states. Since then he’s lived as a street performer in New Orleans, wandered the West Coast leading the legendary underground jug band The Kitchen Syncopators, set up home in a trailer in Asheville and now Nashville, and cut four solo albums full of his wickedly inventive musings on American roots music.
His last album, You Gotta Roll, was lauded by No Depression as “old-time feel-good music done by a young master who clearly understands that this kind of music was always about having a great time,” and Pop Matters, who declared it “a delightful vintage Americana romp.” Working hard in the studio, on the road, and on the songwriting front-line, we are looking forward to seeing what this great band does next.
