“Winstons make meat-and-potatoes garage-soul, the kind of no-frills rock that’s best enjoyed live, and they know this. That’s in part why the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Virginia duo, who met while working at Baby’s All Right, make a point of recording live to tape. No-touch ups, no retakes.” – Noisey
When Johnny Cash gave a young Bob Dylan his guitar backstage at the 1963 Newport Folk Festival, it was a symbolic gesture that unofficially anointed Dylan as the next great folk musician; and the rest is history. When 25-year-old Jesse Woods was presented with a $3,500 Gibson Songwriters Deluxe guitar at his first SXSW – it was stolen by a bum (and former friend). Being a drifter himself, he quickly channeled his heartbreak and rage into creativity, and spent the next 6 months isolated in the garage with wine, a Macbook, and a guitar (borrowed). The result is an EP of WoodsÕ first 7 songs he ever wrote; and serves as a snapshot into the mind and soul of a young artist at the beginning of his journey.
