The Woodgrains / Press

“Courtesy of Handpicked Artists Presents, here is the first single from The Woodgrains' upcoming self-titled sophomore LP, which was recorded at Full Moon Studio with engineer Jay Rodgers. "Nobody Too" finds the longhaired Athens-via-Waycross trio (voted Best Rock Band at this year's Flagpole Athens Music Awards) tightening up the psychedelic, Southern-tinged, Zep-heavy rock and roll sound it introduced on last year's From Marshall, to Venita.”

“The Woodgrains specialize in bourbon-soaked, honey-dipped three-part harmonies and songs about everything and not much, really—simultaneously. You’ll find more than a few heady, perfectly nonsensical and inviting sing-a-longs. Listeners tag along as the band drifts away during wonderful little daydream jams where fantasy and autobiography are indiscernible.”

"The Woodgrains is one of those bands that sound like a band, not a songwriter, not a recording project. And its made most evident in the tight three-part harmonies the group stitches into every song"

Andre Gallant - Athens Banner-Herald

"On their recently released self-titled debut, The Woodgrains immediately impress. Trafficking in a nostalgia-tinged brand of lysergic folk-rock"

“Psychedelic music might have wandered into oblivion after Woodstock, but the grains that brought the harvest have spread throughout the Peach State within The Woodgrains.”

“The Woodgrains impressed! Their funky tunes are groovy, soulful and definitely leave you yearning for more songs…I hope they come back to Savannah! And if they do, you should not hesitate to go see them.”

“The Woodgrains stay true to their roots in both music and demeanor. They create earthy rhythms that’ll swallow you whole if you aren’t careful.”

“Taking the stage, The Woodgrains delivered a solid act. At first, the crowd didn’t give the them the attention this band deserves. Rowdy pool players and distracted patrons all but ignored the first song, but by their third song everyone abandoned what they were doing for a dance out in front of the stage and realized this was going to be a great night of music.”

“Winding up the first evening of Cosmic American Soul Music were local youngsters, The Woodgrains, a trio of talented songwriter/musicians whose combined ages total only 54 years. They satisfied the crowd with their harmony-laden blend of rough-edged funky country music.”
