“Funk and blues with a jam band feel- it’s all here on Shakin’ Woods debut 4 song E.P. The Blues Groove Sessions #1 is elemental with a thick backbeat and grooves as wide as any freeway you’d care to name.  The two Stevies- Wonder & Vaughan- would dig it.” — John Kereiff – Music Reviews by The Rock Doctor

 

” Wrapping the release is Still Alive, a heavy weight blues rocker that really gives Russman the opportunity to show his chops and he’s not holding back.’ – Bmans Blues Report

 

““The Place to Be” leaves me with a big grin on my face as the friendly Phish-like groove creeps over to a psychedelic Hendrix-influenced bridge, and then back again. ” — PhillyCheezeBlues

 

Jan 16, 2021 – The  Blues Groove Sessions #1 debuts a #17 on Roots Music Top 50 Blues Rock Album chart.

 

March 6, 2021 – The Blues Proper Sessions Vol. 2 debuts at #20 on Roots Music Top 50 Blues Rock Alum chart.

Bio

Shakin’ Woods is an American band founded in 2019 in the Washington, DC metro area.  The group began as an offshoot of Rich Russman’s debut solo CD, First In Line.  Fellow founding member Paul Dudley, a veteran of the DC music scene, collaborated with Russman to craft a modern Blues project with the goal of writing, recording, and touring. Following a regular schedule of experimenting for several months with different ideas, the band added George Belton on bass and Austin Day on keyboards/guitar to complete the lineup.

The group has recorded 12 songs, which will be released as 3 4-song EPs throughout 2020 and 2021.  The music comprises 8 original songs and 4 versions of classic blues.  Produced and tracked at Rich’s Bradshaw studios in Virginia, the band welcomed a great opportunity to hire industry giants Jack Douglas and Jay Messina for mixing and mastering.

The engine of the group is driven by Paul’s steady, yet energetic beats, coupled with George’s swampy, soulful basslines.  The guitars, provided by Rich and Austin, bring elements of Southern Rock and old-school Delta Blues.  Day also takes on added duties with exceptional keyboard work.   The members take turns at lead vocals, creating a nice mix of raw energy and haunting soul.

Stay tuned for more announcements as Shakin’ Woods releases videos, merchandise, and future tour dates to support their debut album.
