With the release of their debut album, Rise (2017), Creature and the Woods set the new vanguard of Southern California roots music. The eight song release moves from hard times ballad to a rock & roll throw down with all the reverie of a hallucinatory choir.
Expanding their own melodic lore, Creature and the Woods recorded a follow-up E.P., J Tree, immersed in the light of the super moon over a handful of days in Joshua Tree National Park. J Tree finds the group navigating the metaphysics of their origin while hunting the uncharted sounds only found in overwhelming places. J Tree is due for release in May 2019.
