Through a combination of folk, alt-blues and roots, Edge Of The Woods weave stories about love, loss and life to create soul-stirring music. Formed on the rugged west coast, below Maunga Taranaki, the shifting landscapes are reflected in their music as they blend genres and grooves to deliver touching ballads, swampy blues, untamed folk, and tellurian roots.
Engaging with live audiences is where Edge Of The Woods thrive and deliver their organic sound. As a trio, the band creates surprising and diverse arrangements combining guitar, bass and drums. Wes James leads the songs on acoustic guitar along with a deep baritone voice that ranges from gravelly rumbles to contemplative crooning. Jarrod Hooper brings a wealth of experience and precision on the drum kit with teasingly tight beats and grooves. Being the youngest member, Matthew Mahood adds an energetic playfulness on the bass guitar to complement the trio.
Edge Of The Woods have recently released the new single "Gone Are The Days" from their forthcoming album, "A Ticket Out".
The title track, "A Ticket Out" and accompanying music video is set for release on October the 15th. These two tracks were recorded live as part of an 8 track album recorded and produced by Scallywag Records.
Support will be provided from local singer/songwriter Laura Griffith
and special guest Miles Calder who will be performing a unique solo set from his catalogue of original music.
