Described by The Deli Magazine as “ruggedly pretty… soulfully singing out pain,” George Woods is The Hipster Romantic. A nationally touring Boston-based indie singer-songwriter, Woods writes fiery, infectious autobiographical music and brings contagious optimism and humor to his shows. Woods, with an "uncanny knack for allowing his songs to tap into raw human emotion” (Vanyaland), combines "tasty and classy guitar work," and "a voice... like pure velvet" (Red Line Roots). Every performance offers an electric yet intimate show that is as dynamic as a solo act can be.
A staple force in Boston's music scene for nearly a decade, Woods is just off a 4,000 mile tour alongside That One Eyed Kid to support his album, I Am, fresh off the presses and available on iTunes and Spotify. The home coming show was at one of Boston's most sought after venues, the Brighton Music Hall opening for local legend and nationally touring artist Ruby Rose Fox. Currently planning a series of Mini-Tours to hit New England, the DC area, New York City Area, and the Raleigh NC area in the coming months so stay tuned!
In 2012, his first studio release Heartbeat saw placements in international advertising, and with the help of choreographer Jennifer Crowell-Kuhnberg, was transformed into "Heartbeat: A Modern Dance Rock Concert," a mixed media theatrical production.
"I am" - Upcoming release 05/2017
"My soul is a songbird who's trapped in a cage,
and every word from my lips is it trying to escape."
“I Am”, my newly released full length album, is a thoughtful exploration of identity. These songs describe the search for meaning, the turbulence of my parents’ divorce, and how to find yourself in the world. These things - some difficult, some beautiful, and some painful - shaped us permanently. All people struggle with darkness, but your demons don’t have to keep you isolated or silent. In “I Am,” I say we can own these difficult experiences and propose that we would be incomplete without them. Simply put, the message is to embrace who you are. Give all parts of yourself a voice. You are beautiful.
