To describe the sound of Woodbine Falls as eclectic is merely scratching the surface. As their name suggests, their music is far from manufactured or forced – but instead, a thing of natural beauty. Free flowing and entrancing, yet with a roaring undercurrent of some crashing, unstoppable force.
No one would argue that the source of their atypical and powerfully emotive compositions is drawn from the many influences that comprise it. A New York City-based band – but with its members spanning the globe – Woodbine Falls' unique instrumentation makes for a broad tonal palette.
The sultry and distinctive vocal has shades of folk and jazz. The electric guitar stylings are classical in technique and sensibility, with a strong root in blues. With dazzling concert soloist virtuosity, the flute spins out seemingly unheard colors and effects. The gravitational-like pull of upright bass and drums sets the entrancing grooves while keeping it altogether grounded.
With less astute musicians, the varied worlds of classical, jazz, blues and rock – combined with an experimental twist – might sound self-serving and overproduced. That’s where Woodbine Falls has set itself apart, creating a sophisticated synergy that leaves you wanting more.
