Matt Woods & The Natural Disasters @ Zoo Bar

July 25 @ 6:00 pm

“Get hold of this record. It will haunt and hold you.”
-Americana UK ( International, – 10.1.2017)

“His brand of genre-saving country possesses an authenticity that’s earned him the loyalty of fans plus the comparisons to a range of gifted wordsmiths that run the range from Jason Isbell to Charles Bukowski.”
-Tampa Bay Times (Tampa, FL – 2.18.2016)

“This record from Matt Woods is a brilliant display in songwriting from start to finish. There are no weak spots on Brushy Mountain as Woods allows listeners into his downtrodden world.”
-Atlanta Examiner (Atlanta, GA – 6.29.2014)

“Like Jason Isbell, another son of the South who bears a tenacious tone, Woods is in the vanguard of a country music’s feisty new generation. And in With Love From Brushy Mountain, he’s helping set the standard.”
-No Depression (International – 6.16.2014)

“As far as introductions go, With Love From Brushy Mountain walked right in and punched me in my face…[it’s] in the driver’s seat to receive The Broken Jukebox album of the year distinction.” (US/International – 6.2.2014)

“A Matt Woods show is show isn’t merely a whiskey-fueled half hour set of songs, it’s in-your-face theater–sometimes verging on a public exorcism–that draws the audience in like a constricting (or comforting) hug. He is the one breaking down the barrier between artist and audience; stepping in front of the microphone to shout (and sometimes whisper) his lyrics to the audience. He dismantles his ego piece by piece, until finally, at the end, the very symbol of a stage or a man standing on it
is obliterated and he is on eye and street level again.”
-Wild American Radio (Sacramento, CA – 5.25.2014)

“Listen to his songs on With Love From Brushy Mountain . It all seems so natural to flow from his pen, as if those lyrics and melodies were always ready to be.” (Netherlands/International – 5.21.2014)

“It was truly Matt Woods at his best. His burly, emotional vocal stylings and impressive acoustic guitar work combined with Fulford’s tasteful and booming rhythms for a unforgettably powerful performance.”
-That Much Further West Podcast (Portland, OR – 5.20.2014) **SHOW REVIEW**

“Brushy Mountain is as complete of a country album as you will find, with excellent songwriting throughout, a great sound that is country at heart, but with sprouts of rock & roll that endow the project with spice and originality…Matt Woods is no fluke, no one trick pony. Not even close. He’s a force of songwriting nature who can match his stories with inspired performances.” (US/International – 5.17.2014)

“With Love From Brushy Mountain is as good as it gets in the independent circuit–and as close to mandatory for underground fans as the hype suggests.”
-Wild American Radio (Sacramento, CA – 5.16.2014)

“No matter how loud the bar is when Matt plays “Deadman’s Blues,” he grabs everyone’s rapt attention.”
-Creative Loafing (Tampa – 5.16.2014)

“What Matt Woods has made is not only brilliant, it is heartfelt, honest, gritty and beautiful. To put it plainly…This is one hell of
a great album.”
-Empty Bottles and Broken Souls (Texas – 5.14.2014)

“Matt Woods has released his strongest album to date with With Love from Brushy Mountain…This is country music filtered through rock, folk, punk, red-dirt and bar room soul and it doesn’t sound like anybody else.” (US/International – 5.13.2014)

“Debauchery, self-reproach, defiance, and celebration — that’s the stuff I love in this kind of music and Matt has them all in spades on this album. This is truly one of the best of 2014.”
-Adobe and Teardrops (NYC – 5.13.2014)

“With Love From Brushy Mountain is, without a doubt, Essential Listening for anyone nostalgic for a time when country music was authentic and the songwriting within it was still regarded as the craft that it is… for anyone who misses the likes of Jennings and Kristofferson… and for anyone who wants to say they lived to see the day it made its comeback.” (US/International – 5.13.2014)

“With Love From Brushy Mountain is the kind of album an artist can build a career on and deserves all the accolades it will receive and more…It is an amazing country album and I highly recommend everyone gets it.” (US/International – 5.7.14)

“Perfectly balanced moments of tone and texture that build to make a sum much greater than than the album’s parts…If there’s a finer example of a musician bleeding on to record, we’ve yet to hear it.” (UK/International – 5.6.2014) FIVE STAR REVIEW

“The album is an emotional mountain range. The highs are steep and lofty summits, and the valleys are self disparaging contempt…Well done, Matt Woods.” (US/International – 5.6.2014)

“Every track on Matt Woods’ disc is pretty much a perfect country song.”
-Country Music People Magazine (United Kingdom – 5.1.2014) FIVE STAR REVIEW

“With Love from Brushy Mountain is like listening to a Charles Bukowski poem with a little twang and dirty cowboy boots. It’s that perfect. Get it while the hype machine is at a hum, cause once it gets to a roar we’ll all be deaf.”
-MoonRunners/Black Country Rock (US/International – 4.16.2014)

“Touring and writing songs isn’t a way to make a living as much as it is Matt Woods’ lifeblood. It’s as if he was born with a guitar in his hand and wrote a song about it before his Mother left the hospital…That being said, [With Love From Brushy Mountain] is a perfect second full length album that I believe will catapult Matt Woods to a whole new capacity of new fans–something that is well-deserved for an incredibly talented singer/songwriter and performer.”
-Sad Songs Keep The Devil Away/No Depression (international – 4.16.2014)

“He sounded the way the country feels—and by “country” I don’t mean rural areas, but our entire war-torn forlorn post-recession nation. America hurts, and Matt Woods howls for her.”
-The Bradenton Times (Bradenton, FL – 1.14.2014) **SHOW REVIEW**
