Woody Pines
Mixing blues boogie, John Prine-esque folk and other forms of nostalgic roots, Woody Pines sounds like a catchy busker, convincing you to throw some money into a guitar case with a melody. The influences of the past are thick, but its the attention to multiple sources, and a breezy sense of fun that never takes itself too seriously that makes the music shine. Woody Pines plays at The New Vintage on Wednesday, November 2.

Oak St. The EP features older material that they have recently reworked as a trio, acting as a placeholder until they release their first full-length, which is already recorded, with plans for release in the spring.
