Jesse Woods

Jesse Woods only moved to Austin, Texas, a few years ago, but his adopted city’s trademark blend of musical genres (blues, rock, country) comes through clearly in his lo-fi folk music. Recording in his own all-analog studio and enlisting the aid of some of his local scene’s heavy hitters, he’s diving deep into his smoky take on twang with the upcoming release of his debut LP. Accompanied by a drum machine and cellist, Jesse brought the tunes to life in our studio, and sat down with Maia to chat about his songwriting process, and making the jump from recording to playing live.

Featured song: “Danger In The Dance Hall”
