Sounds | The Steel Woods - The Man From Everywhere

Met een vette knipoog naar Lynyrd Skynyrd en dus opnieuw een lekker stukske southern/country rock. Iets minder gitaarvuurwerk wel dan bij de iconen uit het genre waardoor het country aspect wat meer doorweegt.

On Your Time verschijnt op 6 oktober 2023 in eigen beheer. Luister ook naar: Better in the Fall (live) If Not For The Rain


Co-founder, vocalist and guitarist Wes Bayliss shares the inspiration for the song: "It’s a song loosely based on the story of Uncle Lloyd as a prequel to the Darrell Scott song we cut on our first record, It's written from the perspective of a man who just can’t seem to get things right; hinting that his drinking and gambling addictions are the reason he’s abandoned every good thing he’s ever had going for him. When Connie and I were writing this one I started really getting excited about the record and realizing this crazy idea I had could actually be great."

The Steel Woods have captivated audiences with their powerful sound and heartfelt lyrics over their past three albums. With On Your Time, they embark on a poignant and emotional journey loosely following the trajectory of Uncle Lloyd, a charming but dissolute character first introduced on The Woods' debut album, 2017’s Straw in the Wind. This ambitious album not only showcases their musical evolution and episodic storytelling abilities but also serves as a tribute to the vision and legacy of their late co-founder, Jason "Rowdy" Cope, who passed away just before the release of their third album, All of Your Stones. Led by Bayliss, the band's guitarist, lead vocalist and co-founder, The Steel Woods have poured their heart and soul into this album, creating a record that reflects their resilience, growth and unwavering spirit.

On Your Time finds the band back with an album that reveals calm and introspective thoughts as well delivering the gripping country and rock and roll that’s found them lauded by Rolling Stone Country, Whiskey Riff, Saving Country Music and Wide Open Country, among others. website
