Wovenhand Tour/Album

Wovenhand Tour Dates & Album Release

David Eugene Edwards - Wovenhand
David Eugene Edwards' Wovenhand (former frontman of 16 Horsepower) will be celebrating the release of their fifth album TEN STONES, with U.S. tour dates that begin October 7 in Chapel Hill, NC and end in Denver October 25. The touring lineup will be: David Eugene Edwards - guitar, banjo, vocals; Ordy Garrison - drums; Pascal Humbert – bass. Co-produced by Daniel Smith of Danielson, TEN STONES was recorded at the label's New Jerusalem Recreation Room in Clarksboro, NJ, as well as at Dust Bowl Studios in Glade Park, CO. In the words of Robert Browning, Wovenhand heralds "another greater, wilder country" on TEN STONES and grazes in yet stranger pastures on its fifth release with Sounds Familyre.

Songs were finessed by guest artist Emil Nikolaisen's (Serena Maneesh) driving guitar and co-engineering, the rumbling vibrations of 16 Horsepower bandmate Pascal Humbert on electric and double bass, the incisive drumming of Ordy Garrison, and the soulful guitar of Peter Van Laerhoven. On "His Loyal Love," Elin Smith, also of Danielson, adds guest vocals to Humbert's melody. These sophisticated musicians — many of whom share co-writing credit with Edwards — freshly illumine his considerable vocal range and masterful song craft.

Like a welcome draught from a bottomless well, Edwards sings ten untamed and mercy-drenched songs for thirsty listeners on TEN STONES. From the jarring folk of "White Knuckle Grip," to the eerie bossa nova of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars," to the fiery foot-stomper "Not One Stone," the album forms a song-cycle that is singular in its breadth and eclecticism. Flanked by the haunting strains of the bandoneón and the drones of the double bass, Edwards' lyrical inversions stitch symbols into a tapestry of peaceable and hellish imagery—horsetails, honeybees, and bird wings meet flaming battles and barbed wire to proclaim sin's devastation and the sweetness of redemption. The music of Wovenhand is utterly unique, dizzying those who encounter it, with turnings and lashings of shadow and light.

FWC -- why don't you listen to the music? Oh, you don't like music, just to troll on message boards and call talented musicians "jokes". I'm digging what I hear on Myspace, kind of "Clutch-esque" vocals.

I'm just trying to understand these comments, it's a "joke" and this is such a bad article b/c you've "never heard of this band or ever listned to them." Are you kidding me? That's your criteria? You really don't want to get turned on to new music? Jeezus, I'd much rather hear about bands I don't konw than just news on stuff i'm already down with.

I thought someone w/ such a witty "MyFavBand..YoursSucks" screen name might have been using sarcasm (apologies), but i don't think "Fine White Colombian" is joking... with all the close minded, "this isn't jam music," users i often forget about sarcasm, insight, intelligent discourse on these boards.. it's nice to know such ideas are not dead. Thanks dude above ^.
