Originally hailing from Northern California, before relocating to Portland Oregon, Redwood Son has been an Indie Artist on the Rise. "His Songwriting combines the grittiness of Ryan Bingham, swagger of Eric Church, and a laid back vibe reminiscent of Jack Johnson" says Grammy Nominated Producer Dave Brainard. Depth and Dimension are his Friends, but don't be surprised if You find yourself singing and bopping along to a stable of catchy songs that come from Life's Trials and Triumph.
After a coming out of the gates hot in late 2008, Redwood Son found himself almost completely lost in the fall of 2009, when original drummer and long time Friend Kipp Crawford was tragically killed. It was a long road back, and on the heels of that tragedy, Redwood Son was named "Best New Artist" of the 2010 Portland Music Awards. In June of 2011, he followed with a Double-Debut Album titled "The Lion's Inside" which showed up some of the prolific songwriting prowess that dwells inside this Artist.
The Debut Album was promoted heavily over the course of the next 2 years, prior to finding it's way into the hands of Producer Steve Berlin of the Band "Los Lobos". A natural evolution towards Country Music had been taking shape on the road, and oddly enough, the follow up effort found a genre of it's own, when Redwood Son self released the "Westicana" EP in the Spring of 2016. Only 6 of the 11 Tracks were featured in the teaser, and a Full-Lenght is set to be released in the Spring of 2017.
With a solid following and fanfare residing in the Great Pacific Northwest, it was time to make yet another move. In late 2016, Redwood Son relocated to Nashville TN, after being selected as a Top 4 finalist in the Eckrich "Music City Sing Off" which took place at the Famous Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, as part of their 58th Year Celebration.
Landing in Nashville was a long time coming, and it's only a matter of time before Music City discovers this hard working, blue collar artist. The future looks promising.
Keep an eye out for this Son of the Redwoods, and stay connected to the journey through his Music.
