Time Well Spent


get into the woods



With a US Music Row radio charting debut song and glowing features

from Billboard and NPR, Nashville three-part harmony trio The Woods

have quickly become a Nashville group to watch. With a confident,

roots-steeped style that evokes the folk and classic rock sounds of

the 1960s and 70s, The Woods don't sound like anyone else, and they

wouldn't have it any other way.


Formed in 2021 in Nashville living rooms and home studios,The Woods'

members -- Dan O'Rourke, Raquel Cole, and Leland Rooney -- each

bring a depth of experience as musicians, songwriters, and performers.  

O'Rourke is an established writer and folk-influenced recording artist.

Cole is a seasoned musician with her own successful career as a

Canadian country solo artist. Rooney is an inspired, multi-genre guitar

virtuoso. However, it is the dynamic blend of vocal tones in the trio that

is, perhaps, most compelling to listeners.


Their debut single,“World’s on Fire,” (which they released independently

in March 2022) found enthusiastic early acceptance with fans, radio programmers, and national media. The song saw airplay on more than 70 US country stations and reached Top 50 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart. Billboard's Tom Roland called the song "an engaging, hooky workout with fierce triple harmonies, a loose, acoustically driven country/rock groove, and an almost esoteric lyric that’s open to multiple interpretations." And NPR noted The Woods "create a perfect combination of power and mystique, softness and grit, to make the songs truly soar." 


New fans of The Woods will be excited to know that they are hard at work in the studio recording more music to release soon in addition to their most recent follow-up digital single titled, “If You Really Love Me” (6/3/2022.) The Woods join southern-rock group, The Cadillac Three for their first ever official US tour dates.
