Eye Weekly - NXNE Live Review
Deep Dark Woods on the other hand tastefully wove their way through a balanced set of up-tempo twang and moody country waltzes. Singer/guitarist Ryan T Boldt led the band through the lyrical country landscapes, punctuating each song’s finale with a yowlping “Yeah.” The bearded rhythm section provided a rollicking backbeat and some sweet falsetto backgrounds. But the real treat was the guitar work of Boldt and Burke Barlow — equal parts Chet Atkins and Flying Burrito Brothers, though unfortunately underpowered by the Cadillac’s PA. Give these lads a later time slot, half a box of beer and some serious volume and I suspect you’d been in for a serious barn-burner.
