After 22 years in Knoxville, Tennessee, Matt Woods is uprooting to focus on his most recent release. The americana songwriter recently sold his East Tennessee home and went into the studio making the introspective new album titled How To Survive which releases Friday October 7th, 2016 on Lonely Ones Records. This third studio album from Woods was written throughout the rigorous touring schedule he has maintained since the 2014 release of his With Love From Brushy Mountain album which garnered the songwriter national and international acclaim including accolades citing the album and it’s first single, “Deadman’s Blues,” at the top of several critics’ “Best Of” lists.
To hear Woods tell it, he spends a hell of a lot of time on the road, playing his songs for anyone who cares to listen. “Some folks call what I do Americana, but I have a hard time putting a label on things like that. A lot of my songs are very much based in classic country music while others are grounded in straight forward and greasy rock’n’roll,” Woods explains. “I write what is ready to come out and try to be as honest as I can about it.”
Woods performed over 500 shows in support of With Love From Brushy Mountain, several festival appearances including Gasparilla Festival, Muddy Roots, Moonrunners, Fest 13, Wildwood Music Festival and a month long European tour in the fall if 2015. Along the way, he has shared the stage with the likes of Chris Knight, Black Oak Arkansas, Bobby Bare, Frank Turner, Roger Alan Wade, Zac Brown, Drivin’ n’ Cryin’, Will Hoge, Roger Clyne (of The Refreshments), CAKE, Robbie Fulks, The White Buffalo, The Black Lillies and others.
