rock band The Steel Woods to perform at Flora | Community
The Steel Woods will be performing at Venue 720 in Flora on July 2nd. Doors open at 6 p.m. The show starts at 7 a.m.
The Steel Woods are a hybrid musical force, partly sharp, partly country folk with American roots, artificial rock, but organic, but also bluegrass, R&B, blues, gospel, soul and heavy metal. They have toured with Jamey Johnson, Whiskey Myers, Blackberry Smoke, Miranda Lambert and Cody Jinks.
They are performing in support of their new album “All of Your Stones”, which was released on May 14th. The record has already been well received by the press, including media such as Rolling Stone Country, American Songwriter, MAGNET and more.
In January, tragedy struck when co-founder and star Jason “Rowdy” Cope passed away suddenly in his sleep, as the band wrapped up the album. The recently revealed cause of death was due to complications from severe diabetes. The remaining band members, along with Cope’s family, made the difficult decision to move forward with the release of “All of Your Stones”. This record pays homage to the passion and vision that Cope emulated as a member of The Steel Woods and it’s something the band knew Cope would be proud of.
“All of Your Stones” mixes elements of hard rock and southern rock with blues and country influences. Due to Cope’s passing, guitarist Tyler Powers recently joined The Steel Woods as the new lead guitarist. Powers has a long history with Cope and has replaced the group in the past.
