From the hills of Vancouver, BC comes a sound that couldn't be matched by the greatest West Coast Storm. Meet rock band, Redwoods. Their music fuses the best parts of soul, alternative and classic rock and roll, with lyrics that pair perfectly with earth-shattering musicality.
Redwoods is the true epitome of a powerhouse 4-piece. The raging fire of sound which burns beneath Devon Webber's soaring and soulful vocals is a blend we have trouble finding in today's music. A band which sticks true to their rock god influences but at the same time leads their own march in search of a diverse rock-and-roll sound. 80's inspired classic, crunchy guitar riffs and jaw-dropping solos are always on the menu, as well as the down-right heavy rock tones and melodies heard from bands such as Audioslave, Foo Fighters and Big Wreck. Redwoods' performances are notoriously fun, sweaty and infectious. They breathe electricity into each member of the room like a contagious rock-and-roll virus.
The year 2020 has been one touted as the worst in existence for touring musicians of every kind; however, Redwoods has managed to continue carving a landscape for themselves and their brand. Some notable performances of the past year have included opening for Royal Tusk on their Thunder On the Tundra Tour at the Fox Cabaret in Vancouver, BC. The band was also a part of the Jim Beam Talent Search Virtual Edition, which awarded them the opportunity of recording their song Tidal Wave live at Warehouse Studios (Vancouver, BC) in August. Redwoods received the most online votes for the Vancouver region of bands in that competition. Live-streamed performances of the past year have included a set at Rain City Recorders in June, as well as Blue Light Studios in August.
Apart from these appearances, Redwoods has been focused on recording their 2nd full-length studio album with Matt Roach at Rain City Recorders (Vancouver, BC), with plans to release the first single in the Spring of 2021. This group's hardworking nature translates seamlessly into their craft, and all of their music is packed to the brim with pure heart and soul. This is the kind of music that can't be faked, it is true blue artistry. Redwoods certainly shimmers in the modern sea of Ableton mumble rap, and reminds us that music isn't dying at all. It is alive, well and thriving through Redwoods.
