Wovenhand

Winding dark, atmospheric lyrics with a fierce spiritual bent around elements of vintage folk and gospel music as well as rootsy rock & roll, Wovenhand was founded by David Eugene Edwards, formerly the frontman with brooding alt-country act 16 Horsepower. In 2001, 16 Horsepower went on hiatus, and as the group pondered a new creative direction, Edwards launched Wovenhand, built around similar musical and thematic frameworks but with a more powerful and personal approach. Edwards initially formed Wovenhand as a trio with multi-instrumentalist Daniel McMahon and guitarist Steve Taylor (also a member of 16 Horsepower), though soon the lineup would expand to include Ordy Garrison on drums and Paul Fonfara on cello. (For live work, Shane Trost subbed for Fonfara on cello.) Edwards played nearly all the instruments on Wovenhand's first album in 2002, released by Glitterhouse in Europe and Sounds Familyre in the United States. In 2003, Edwards reworked several pieces from the Wovenhand debut for a Belgian dance troupe, and the results were released on the album Blush Music. For 2004's Consider the Birds, Wovenhand contrasted Edwards' solo material with tracks that featured a full band, while for live shows Wovenhand was a duo consisting of Edwards and Garrison.

The additional musicians played a larger role on 2006's Mosaic, the first Wovenhand album after 16 Horsepower officially retired in 2005; the album also saw the departure of Daniel McMahon, and guitarist Peter van Laerhoven joined the group, while another 16 Horsepower veteran, Pascal Humbert, signed on as bassist. While Wovenhand initially functioned much like a David Eugene Edwards solo project, 2008's Ten Stones found the group sharing songwriting credits for the first time, as well as recording as a band throughout. Edwards went back to writing the material on his own for 2010's The Threshingfloor, and the group supported the album's release with a handful of dates opening for Tool. In 2012, Edwards was invited to perform as part of a reunion tour for the acclaimed Australian alternative rock band Crime & the City Solution, and Alexander Hacke, a former member of Einstürzende Neubauten who also took part in the CATCS tour, joined Edwards in the studio to produce Wovenhand's 2012 release The Laughing Stalk, which featured Garrison on drums, Chuck French on guitar, and Gregory Garcia, Jr. on bass. Refractory Obdurate, with Edwards accompanied by Garrison, French, and new bassist Neil Keener, was released in 2014. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Let's not get caught up in whether or not Edward's music is religious or not. It does not matter to me. He is exceptionall y talented, fantastic live, and like most song writers (at least the good ones), he writes what is in his heart. The listener can like it or not. The listener can also take what he/she wants from the music. If it inspires you, brings you closer to your beliefs, or like me, you just simply love the music, your views are valid. There is power in his music, regardless.

Also patiently waiting for that day when Pandora commentary evolves enough to recognize quote symbols.

...some interesting commentary.. . l o l . . . p e r s o n a l opinion (since y'all asked), I'm an atheist and love these lyrics. They make me think of Olde Time Religion: shrieking backwater preachers, snake handlers, and lynch mobs. Couldn't care less if the singer means it or not. It's fantastic mood-setting imagery either way.

What baffles me is how some ignorant souls, like lucifers.lad y , Find the lyrics the problem... because talk of our Lord convicts them and they like to pretend that God and the bible don't exist, yet she calls herself lucifers lady. Well, where'd you learn about satan? The same book you like to pretend doesnt exist. How can you believe one word of a book, but, then not another? And you pick the one that we all know LOSES! I'd call that a self-proclai m e d loser. Your knees and head will bend wit

adamkeithdan i e l s o n is probably an evangelical Christian who makes too strong of a dichotomy between "Religion" and "relationshi p , " as in "Christianit y is not a religion, but a relationship . " I am also an evangelical Christian, and think that much, though not all, of Wovenhand's music is "religious." Most of it is awesome

adamkeithdan i e l s o n is misguided when he says these lyrics are not religious. Nearly all the imagery is clearly biblical, as in the Bible, as in the holy book of Christianity which last I checked was a religion. If you're not religious and appreciate it for purely artistic reasons, that's cool. But don't try to fool yourself and others. Don't take it from me: http://www.y o u t u b e . c o m / u s e r / o l i v 6 7 3 3 # p / u / 6 / i O N Y J R 7 n 9 Q Q

I saw this band when they opened for Tool at the sprint center in North Kansas City on June 25th.I had no clue who they were before that concert, but after seeing them I understand why Tool let them tour with them,they put on a GREAT show.

The imagery and lyrics are not religious. They speak of a Savior full of love and compassion who beckons a call of healing to all who would hear. This man is simply conveying a love that has overwhelmed his heart to the point of bursting. Religion sucks and has been sucking the truth and life out of what is meant to be an intimate relation with a very real and very present God.

while the lyrical imagery is religious, the obsessions, passions and commitment imbued in the music transends and is universal. One still must admire the fervor and commitment involved - even if he were part of a snake-handli n g cult

Well, I assume you don't like the Christian imagery in the lyrics. Although they might be religious, I think these themes are meant to hearken back to a time in America where most songs were about religion. Think of them as "lost songs from an alternate American time line." Also, the singer may not actually be "singing" but instead channeling a singer from the past. Or maybe he's just a born-again wacko.
