Woody Woodworth & The Piners
Woody Woodworth is a singer-songwriter that hails from Richmond, Virginia. Born and raised in rural Hanover County to a working-class family steeped in a love for music and storytelling, Woodworth took to music at an early age. He was first introduced to the "Grand Ole Opry" through his beloved grandparent's radio. With a family history deeply rooted in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley, Woodworth became intrigued by regional tales woven into bluegrass, folk, and traditional country music; igniting a curiosity in the art of songwriting. His mother, a Southern Rock Baptist Hippie, educated him on sounds from the late 60s and early 70s and introduced him to the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Townes Van Zandt, and CCR, Lynyrd Skynyrd among many others.
Woodworth began playing guitar and crafting songs of his own around the age of thirteen. He grew as a musician and writer during his time at Hampden-Sydney College where he began to take songwriting seriously. In 2016, Woodworth formed his band Woody Woodworth & The Piners. His songs embody the heart of Americana with haunting melodies of love, loss, and the American spirit.
Woodworth writes of blue-collar lives, evoked through moments that are as simultaneously easy on the ears as they are tough on the heart. Framed within the confines of both small towns and bustling metropolis,’ Woodworth's lyrics paint a picture that honor the past while paying tribute to the beauties found in everyday contemporary life. Over the course of the last year, Woody and his band have played with: Western Centuries, The Way Down Wanderers, The Stray Birds, Frank Solivan and the Dirty Kitchen, The New Schematics, Mountain Heart, and has booked with Capital Ale House Music Hall (Richmond, VA), Ashland Coffee and Tea (Ashland, VA), The Camel (Richmond, VA), Picker's Alley (Fredericksburg, VA), Jammin Java (Vienna, VA), Pearl Street Warehouse (Washington, D.C.) , Tropicalia (Washington D.C.), Roofers Union (Washington, D.C.) and The Branded Saloon (Brooklyn NY). Recently Woody and The Piners traveled to "the birthplace of country music", Bristol, Virginia / Tennessee, to record their first full length album, set to be released in the summer of 2018.
