Woundikin’s “So It Goes,” has been the soundtrack to Autumn. The stellar single release earlier this Fall captured the ears of fans and critics alike, and now, the singer-songwriter reveals the gorgeously crafted video for the track.
Taking piano as a child, Woundikin always felt drawn to the drums. In High School he started playing drums for the school’s Jazz band, and over the years have played in Rock, Funk, Electronic, Jam and Jazz-Fusion groups. Eventually he wanted to be able to create individually and have more control over his music, than what drumming typically allowed. This led Woundikin to learn production and guitar. Gravitating towards the finger-picking styles a la The Tallest Man on Earth or James Taylor, he found himself intrigued by the rhythmic style and how it’s almost like playing guitars, drums, and even a little bass.
While the music can be calm and relaxing, it’s evident that Woundikin’s vision is truly a labor of love. Often taking the bittersweet moments in life, his songs offer up grey clouds with silver linings. With influences ranging from Ray LaMontagne to the Tallest Man on Earth, the music that Woundikin creates is uniquely and elegantly his own. When writing lyrics, the up-and-coming songwriter draws inspiration from personal experiences, his perception of others’ experiences and the world around him. Lyrics are generally the last step in Woundikin’s songwriting process as they come together after the musical portions have come into place.
