One thing we have learnt over the years is that if at the very core of any song, no matter what the genre, there is a great melody, then it doesn’t matter how you dress it up, lay down the production or strip it down. If you’ve got a great melody, you’ve got a great song. And people will listen. Period.
Dead Wood is currently a one man project from northern Sweden. With influences from English folk and the Nashville country and a balance between joy and heartbreak, Dead Wood creates a feeling of home and longing.
Dead Wood breathes, writes and performs melody. Therefore the equation is simple. People will listen!
From the moment “The Queen and The Peasant” kicks off, you can hear how Dead Wood balances a straightforward accessible lyrical quality with enough musical complexity to stave off listener fatigue. And from there on out he serves the song before the singer.
His music is meant to paint pictures in your mind and elicit feelings in your soul. One listen to “Send Me A Sign” plays testimony to how easily he succeeds at doing this; mainly because, apart from His way with melody, he has a voice with magnificent range and timbre. Without which the melodies would not so easily be translated into emotion.
This artist is Great.. Period.
