Matt Woods

Matt Woods is an americana, country and southern roots songwriter from Knoxville, Tennessee who spends a hell of a lot of time on the road, playing his songs for anyone who cares to listen. "Some folks call what I do Americana, but I have a hard time putting a label on things like that. A lot of my songs are very much based in classic country music while others are grounded in straight forward and greasy rock’n’roll,” Woods explains. “I write what is ready to come out and try to be as honest as I can about it."

2014 brought the release of Woods’ 2nd full length studio album, With Love From Brushy Mountin, which was met with much critical acclaim. After 220+ shows in 2014, several festival appearances including Gasparilla Festival, Muddy Roots, Moonrunners and Fest 13, Matt is moving into 2015 refreshed and ready for what lies ahead. Along the way, he has shared the stage with the likes of Chris Knight, Black Oak Arkansas, Bobby Bare, Roger Alan Wade, Zac Brown, Drivin' n' Cryin', Will Hoge, Roger Clyne (of The Refreshments), CAKE, The White Buffalo, The Black Lillies and many others.


"It’s only a matter of time before singer-songwriter Matt Woods finds wider recognition."
-Performing Songwriter

“Like Jason Isbell, another son of the South who bears a tenacious tone, Woods is in the vanguard of country music’s feisty new generation. And in With Love From Brushy Mountain, he’s helping set the standard.”
-No Depression

“Brushy Mountain is as complete of a country album as you will find, with excellent songwriting throughout, a great sound that is country at heart, but with sprouts of rock & roll that endow the project with spice and originality…Matt Woods is no fluke, no one trick pony. Not even close. He’s a force of songwriting nature who can match his stories with inspired performances.”

“[Matt Woods] started singing with more power and more emotion than, get ready for this, more emotion and strength than anyone I remember seeing maybe ever. I was floored…I LOVE THIS SONG.”
-Riki Rachtman (Headbangers Ball, NASCAR Radio, Fork In The Road) **On Deadman’s Blues

“Matt Woods [has been] putting out great self-penned, independent country and roots albums that draw a line in the proverbial sand. Every song just suggests ‘See, this is what country music is.’”

"Every track on Matt Woods’ [Brushy Mountain] disc is pretty much a perfect country song."
-Country Music People (UK)

"The Matt Woods Manifesto is one of the best new records I've heard this year."

"Passionate, no-nonsense, hard-rocking country goodness!”
