Since being named “Best New Artist” at the 2011 Portland Music Awards, Redwood Son has done a great deal of growing up. The road will do that to a person, and with 60k miles under his belt over the past 3 years, you can see why there is a new found focus for 2015.
Heading into completion of a new record, which is being produced by Steve Berlin of the iconic band, Los Lobos, we are all wondering what this sound and vibe will be like, regarding an artist that is no longer “New”.
Fusing vintage tones with contemporary stylings, these songs promise to bring a more mature approach to some timeless folk tunes. Truth be told, you may even find a few dusts of country music in this new album, but that’s not a bad thing. Life brings tragedy, and those bleed feelings. Redwood Son is not one to run from the woes that come along from time to time, and he’s also not afraid to speak his mind about it.
Set to release on VINYL, in May of 2015, you can keep and eyes and ears open for some sneak peak singles and music videos in the meantime. The future is bright for this local old soul, who can now be considered a veteran of the regional Pacific Northwest music scene.
