Woody Woodworth is a singer-song writer that embodies the heart of Americana with his 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. Woodworth is set to release his first full length album in 2018.
