It is a painful and intimate but universal story. [Old Boy] skillfully connects the power of rock with the story driven rawness of folk. An excellent, moving album.”

'Old Boy' Moriah Woods's 2nd Studio Album to be released 16th of September 2019

[PL/EN]
Moriah Woods jest urodzoną i wychowaną w Colorado (USA), a obecnie mieszkającą w Polsce wokalistką, multi-instrumentalistką, autorką tekstów i muzyki tworzącą w stylistyce dark-folk/rock. Odkąd w 2014 roku zamieszkała w Polsce wydała 2 albumy, jeden solowy oraz jeden z zespołem The Feral Trees. 16 września 2019 r. będzie miał premierę jej drugi solowy album zatytułowany 'Old Boy'. Jest to historia zainspirowana zmaganiem z uzależnieniem i depresją jakiego doświadczył jej ojciec, który zmarł w 2017 r. w wyniku komplikacji spowodowanych chorobą psychiczną i uzależnieniem.
Projekt ten rozpoczął się jako osobista próba poradzenia sobie z bólem i żałobą po stracie bliskiej osoby a przerodził się w potrzebę podzielenia się i pomocy innym osobom które zmagają się z problemami podobnymi do tych z jakimi zmagał się jej ojciec.
'Old Boy" niesie wiadomość że twoja historia i twój ból są wyjątkowe ale nie są rzadkością i można je rozwiązać. Nie tylko my cierpimy w życiu, musimy pamiętać że wszyscy jesteśmy w tym razem oraz że cierpienie jest częścią tej drogi i pozwoli nam ją lepiej zrozumieć jeśli tylko na to pozwolimy.

ENGLISH-
Moriah woods is a mulit-insterumentalist from the mountains of Colorado, USA living in Poland since 2014. Upon arrival in Poland Moriah has released two studio albums, one with The Feral Trees including an EP. September 16th 2019 will be the release of her 2nd studio album titled 'Old Boy' inspired by the struggles of addiction and depression after the passing of her father in 2017 from complications with mental health and addictions.
The project began as a way of processing grieving behind closed doors and opened into a desire to share and reach into other people who might be struggling in a similar way as she has known and watched her father struggle.
'Old Boy' is a message that your story and your pain is unique but not uncommon or unresovable. That we are not alone or alien in the sufferings of life and we must remember that we are in this together and the sufferings are part of the journey that lead us to a better understanding if we let it.
