Former MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE Bassist,  Joe Lengson

Premiere’s First Track, “Red or White” From New Project,

The Woodsman’s Babe Exclusively at

Former MyChildren MyBride bassist Joe Lengson has emerged as The Woodsman’s Babe, a sound far from the heavy chugs and guttural screams of his previous endeavor. Influenced and inspired more so by the likes of Fleet Foxes, The National and The Beatles, Lengson’s solo effort carries soft and delicate tones coupled with poetic introspective lyrics detailing personal stories, relationship woes and youthful observations.

His first released track “Red or White” can be heard exclusively at

“Most of my lyrics were at one time poems because I went through a poetic phase a while ago, shortly after my book was released,” states Lengson. “That poem in particular is half about a woman I used to be intimate with a very long time ago… I was always touring and I couldn’t have expected her to wait around for me to get back to California. I wrote many words about her and our experiences we shared.”

About The Woodsman’s Babe:

Joe Lengson cut his teeth in this business by playing bass in the Tooth & Nail/Solid State metal band MyChildren MyBride, a band who toured the world, appeared on television and landed on the Billboard top 200. In addition, Lengson penned and published his own novel Sleeping in Parking Lots while simultaneously touring the globe. After turning down an offer to host his own MTVu music video program, Lengson set his sights on developing what would become the music of The Woodsman’s Babe. The tunes ended up being a great source of catharsis for the artist who found a new freedom in being able to create the music he felt he was suppressing while being enveloped in the metal world. Lengson currently resides in Los Angeles working as a photographer and filmmaker while studying English and making music.

Joe Lengson is available for interviews upon request.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
