Woodford Way’s ‘There and Back,’ Marks the Bands First Full Line-Up Release

Artist: Woodford Way
Title:’ There and Back’

Overall Album Vibe: ‘There and Back,’ is the 3rd full length release from Western Massachusetts band Woodford Way (Kyle Mangini, Jeff Lynch, Eric Arena, Riley Godleski and Tim Lynch).

‘There and Back’, marks the first time that they’ve recorded as a full fledge band, previous group efforts were as a duo act. The album was recorded, produced, and mixed by band bassist Eric Arena at Zing Studios and can be found on Take This To Heart Records.

To achieve their sound the band morphs many different genres into their songs from; folk to pop that’s intertwined with a jazz and groove band vibe.

The band’s songs are story driven, mainly thanks to being what they categorize as being, “Influenced heavily by James Taylor, Paul Simon, and Bob Dylan,” and deal a lot with issues revolving around that most powerful human emotion known as love.

Tracks that stood out for me include the fast paced Island sounding track, “Harpoon,” The six minute long jam track, “Couldn’t Be More Wrong,” along with the keys infused, “City Line,” and the melodic closer, “Charlotte’s Lullaby.”
