THE DEEP DARK WOODS ON TOUR IN THE SPRING TIME OF THE YEAR Proudly Introducing EVAN CHEADLE of The Deep Dark Woods as Direct Support

About this Event

Floods and plagues, ghosts and slaughter: woe to those who populate the songs of "Yarrow", The Deep Dark Woods latest release (Six Shooter Records, October, 2017). A gentle summer breeze swings the gallows ropes, flowers bloom callously on lovers’ graves. These anthems are definitely not from Eden.

Fresh off a Juno nomination for their most recently release "Yarrow" (Six Shooter Records), the band has been crafting their brand of prairie psychedelics and a “loose grungy folk sound” (Paste) for over ten years. Having released 6 critically acclaimed records, the two-time Juno nominated band has developed a fervent international following on both sides of the Atlantic, with particular success in the Americana realm. Having performed with members of The Grateful Dead and received a nomination for Emerging Artist of the Year at the Americana Music Awards, the Deep Dark Woods have toured North America, the UK and Europe to rave review.

"Yarrow" is The Deep Dark Woods reimagined by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Boldt. There’s a juicy unease and quiet intensity to frontman Boldt’s presence, as if a new door has opened to let loose the weirdness. In place of the freewheelin’ jammy vibe there’s a darker, stranger tenor that sides with those modern mystics whose music exists in the creepier, freakier corners of existence. The sound is rooted in, but not restricted to, tradition, drawing inspiration from sounds out of the U.K. and Appalachia and employing rich storytelling. The haunting and cinematic lyrical style and chord changes that pillow the flowing delivery and harmony and lines are cloaked in dreams of summer through a snowstorm.

With "Yarrow", it's clear that Boldt's well of inspiration runs as deep as it does dark.
