The Deep Dark Wood, Papier Saal, 20.4.2013, Zürich

The Deep Dark Woods, Concert: Papier Saal, Zürich. So I had a beer and plucked up the courage to speak to one of them before they went on stage; Geoff Hilhorst – Keyboard troubadour and who is as tall as the Sitka Spruce was generous enough to share a couple of  facts.
The all Canadian band (singer and guitarist Ryan Boldt, bass guitarist, vox Chris Mason, organist and pianist Geoff Hilhorst, drummer Lucas Goetz, along with Clayton Linthicum- replacement for Burke Barlow) hail from Saskatoon and Toronto, they’re signed to Six Shooter Records in Canada and Sugarhill Records in the US, and to experience them play is something like coming in from the cold and rain to a freshly baked apple pie. As the set progresses you realise you’re lost in the deep dark woods as if it’s their aim – to spellbound and slowly intoxicate with the help of  light sonic dueling of Boldt’s guitar and Hilhorst’s Keyboard. They’ve been compared to Neil Young among others of that ilk but they have  definite personality of their own – they draw their music influences from all over but love stuff coming out of england and Ireland. They’re going to be giants – physically they already are.

If you haven’t had the privilege to see them live yet, it’s a must. They have a new album coming out Autumn/Winter which will be the 5th under their belt: http://thedeepdarkwoods.com/?page_id=7
