Edge Of The Woods celebrate the release of their debut E.P. Lookin' For Somthin'. A 6 track journey that features lounge soul, swamp blues, a touching ballad and untamed folk. The songs explore love, loss and life with honesty and passion. Lookin' For Somethin' was recorded at Taranaki's hottest studio, Rhythm Ace, with engineer and producer Sam Johnson. The first two singles, 'Lost Cowboy' & 'Eruera', are currently available on Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp, Youtube + more.
Pre-purchase of the album is available when you purchase your tickets (to be collected at the gig), plus limited edition 'Lost Cowboy' T-Shirts.
Engaging with live audiences is where Edge Of The Woods thrive and engage their organic sound. As a trio, the band creates surprising and diverse arrangements combining vocals, 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.
This gig features a special performance from Taranaki based artist Emily Riordan, who has been busy touring New Zealand following the release of her debut EP "Waves". Emily plays dreamy, melancholic soft pop influenced by her background in classical piano and singing. "Waves", released in May 2019, is a trip-hop/trap collaboration with Wellington producer Shxshi. Emily also released an acoustic version of this EP. Both are available on all streaming platforms.
