Birds in the Woods CD Release with Ferrous Wheel
Birds in the Woods recently released its debut full-length, Some Thing Knew?, which provides listeners with a full palette of BITW's imaginative-eclectic, often funky, always soul-searching sound. Lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist George Woods brings listeners along on a journey exploring all the little pieces and moments of life. Backed by Sue Buzzard on violin, Tyreek Jackson on bass, and Massimo Buonanno on drums, together the band provides a rich atmosphere of engaging improvisational sound. The band is even known to make up full songs from scratch on stage.
Ferrous Wheel formed its neo-funk sounds out of a need for serious groove. Made up of Berklee alumni and current students, Ferrous Wheel is quickly emerging as one of Boston's top funk bands. In the spirit of the classic carnival ride, the members of Ferrous Wheel are highlighted one by one throughout the band's performance, eliminating the need for a "star child."
