The Redwood thinkers were formed in the summer of 2004 and their debut self titled album is a glimpse into the hearts and minds of three very talented singer songwriters. Singing and playing comes naturally to each and every one of them with a passion second to none. Music that gently cuts across eras & styles, tied together by powerful song writing & the sheer potential beauty of the English language. 'The band's debut album, ' The Redwood Thinkers', is a varied group of songs, each one the baby of an individual band member lovingly brought up by all three. Particular highlights include the Kezia vocal on Lunatic In A Dressing Gown, which puts one in mind of Lisa Loeb, and Darren's intense Open Your Eyes... a first album to be proud of' Chris Wrught - The Chris Wright Radio Show " Hello to lilting lovelies Redwood Thinkers playing acoustic islands of calm and plaintive thoughts in rich tones. Smoothly-textured, ringing chords ebb and flow from their guitars, the singer's candlelight voice casting a comforting glow of softly smoking incense across the room. A little too mellow for sure, but with unexpected turns of slightly bitter, slightly resentful complaints nudging their way in as they question 'What if I forgot your birthday, what if I forgot your name?' Dealing in personal, personable and down-to-earth everyman's storytelling, Redwood Thinkers daub a wash of homely yellow ochre over everything and invite you to consider everyday realities with an accepting eye..." Lauren Strain - Leeds music Scene 'Imagine if you will, you're at a party and the guitars come out. As usual it's time to bite your tongue, try and close your ears and just clap along at the end. Only this time the singers harmonize and the guitars are played the way you always dreamt you could. This is what it must be like when the Redwood Thinkers come round.' 'Folk Rock without the usual pretension, and if your first thoughts of Folk music are full of hey-nonny-nonny's and organic cider drinkers with beards then it's time for a second impression. Think Bob Dylan, Fleetwood Mac, Barenaked Ladies, Counting Crows, The Beautiful South, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, even R.E.M all in a big bowl and your getting closer. While you're at it check out the Celtic Folk Rock offerings of bands like The Peatbog Faeries, Croft No.5 and the superb latino/celtic Salsa Celtica' Chris Thomas - Phonographic Ramblings Looking to the future the band has spent the last year with a new lineup including a double bass player and percussionist which is leading to new an exciting songs being written. If you buy this album you will enjoy the roots of a band that is set to be around for a very long time to come. With only 200 copies of the debut album left in the UK there is no better time to add something special to your CD collection.
