Hassles Every now and again you stumble upon a release that is just so fresh, sincere and suprisingly beautiful. 'Bring The Rain' is a wonderfully produced recording of clever, yet sparse instrumentation providing an ideal backdrop for the delivery of the earthy, at times near haunting vocals of Moriah Woods. A truly wonderful album.

about

i've been surrounded by music for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until I started traveling the USA by thumb in 2008 that I became completely ensnared by the world of acoustic folk, folk punk, folk metal, folk.... whatever. I returned to colorado and accidentally got smacked in the face by spirit of Townes Van Zand. 'Waiting Around to Die' left me feeling that there truely is a way for pure self exression. I always gravitated towards the rich, dirty and more melancholy sounds that swam past my ears. I picked up a guitar and started writing. I was far too scared to ever perform, and I never even considered it as I just wrote the songs for myself anyway, but from time to time I creeped into some open mics and watched from a distance and saw the beauty of sharing your spirit. I maintained a closet or "back porch" performer for a couple of years. until someone booked me a gig that I wasn't allowed to cancel. after performing I realized i'd just found what my spirit had been craving that I had finally achieved my way for pure self expression. I never intended to do anything with my material, but my friend Glen smith (who you can hear in the album) really put this album into motion by inviting me to his house to play with some recording equipment. he gave me the tracks and it escalated from there.

Thank you for listening to my struggles, my pain, my joys and my passions. I never stop writing as I never stop feeling.

Track Name: Valley of Death
And we'll go through the valley
with our two feet, steps in time
we'll find our treasure
we'll find our time
and our bodies will lie peaceful
in the earth beneath our feet
remember me
remember me

as that little bird passes
in the sky above my head
thank god for life
cause I'll soon be dead
all my prayers have been answered
all my glories have been sung
remember me
remember me
Track Name: Cactus Bones
When I wake I'm overcome
with delusions, confusions
don't know where I have been
or what I have done

Should I mourn
cactus bones
Should I mourn
help me lord

Oh that day I went down to those tracks
put my head underwater saying
I'm never coming back
pulling my hair out in the sunshine
I'm long gone I'm long gone
for fixing

should I mourn
cactus bones
should I mourn
help me lord

should I mourn
should I mourn

When I wake I'm overcome
with heartache and heartbreak
wanted those heavens those heavens to cry out
and tell me where to go

should I mourn
cactus bones
should I mourn
help me lord

When I wake I'm overcome
with delusions confusions
don't know where I have been
or what I have done
Track Name: That Bottle
Well I got hit by that bottle
that bottle did me well or so I thought
and I lost my wife and babies
my drinking habits' gone all so wrong
all so wrong
all so wrong
all so wrong
all so wrong

and he blessed me with rock bottom
which brought me back to life I swear to god
and that lord coulda come and took me
facing them pearly gates oh heavens doors
I could've died
I could've died a lonely man
I could've died
I could've died a lonely man

Now my babies hug and kiss me
and I'm not breathing fiery demons in their faces
rediscovered prayer and passions
god I love god I love god I love
I could've died
I could've died a lonely man
I could've died
I could've died a lonely man

well I got hit by that bottle
that bottle did me well or so I thought
I lost my wife and babies
my drinking habits gone all so wrong
all so wrong
Track Name: Raise Your Head
I'm trudging through
that deepest ocean
my head held high
and I'll overcome

with black before me
I do not falter
I push on through
I'll overcome

raise your head
oh raise your head
raise your head
oh raise your head

well help me two feet
to move my body
when inside my head
is dull and grey

and help me fingers
to move over my strings
when I do not know
oh what to say

raise your head
oh raise your head
raise your head
oh raise your head

I'm trudging through
the deepest ocean
my head held high
i'll over come

black before me
I do not falter
i'll push on through
i'll overcome

raise your head
oh raise your head
raise your head
oh raise your head
Track Name: It Aint Right
It ain't right
what i'm doing
like fire is to the trees
it ain't right
what i'm feeling
deep inside of me

please
burn it to the ground
freeze
the roots out of me

please
burn it to the ground
freeze
the roots out of me

i'm tired
from these dark blue ways
of coping with my days
nothing much can pull me from
the cycles I fall in

please
burn it to the ground
freeze
the roots out of me

i'm killing
i'm breaking down
that which is myself
hurry now to help myself
before there is nothing left

please
burn it to the ground
freeze
the roots out
please
burn it to the ground
freeze
the roots out

It ain't right
what i'm doing
like fire is to the trees
it ain't right
what i'm feeling
deep inside of me
Track Name: Cold Water
momma done and left her
by the cold cold water
the future holds no hope
leave em by the water
well say your prayers dear child
by the cold cold water you will die

the screams and cries are growing
by the cold cold water
another mouth to feed
just leave them by that water
well say your prayers dear child
by the cold cold water you will die

one day the sun will shine
down upon that water
the river will run clean of the sons and their daughters
I thought there was a lord
come and save father
well you can keep your lies
by the cold cold water
you will die

one day a traveler roamed
by the cold cold water
the sun was in the sky
he was some child's father
and he sat down by the banks
by the cold cold water
he cried
by the cold cold water
he cried
Track Name: Trials
Oh god i'll change my ways
i'll never be the same
when my horses come
their bringing back my name

goodbye father smoke
goodbye mother drink
goodbye sister shame
i'm taking back my name

thank you trials and hardships for
giving me more life
thank you breath inside these lungs for
keeping me alive

hollow is the name when
one can't even use it
shallow that heart becomes when
one can't even feel it

oh god i'll change my ways
i'll never be the same
when my horses come home
their bringing back my name
Track Name: Bring the Rain
Smoke rises
from the east
I am leaving here
to find some peace

and a cold winds blowing
down my back
I know i'm leaving you
foreign desert

please bring that rain
please bring that rain
please bring that rain

winding highways
stretch for miles
and it could be lonely
without yourself

where are you going
north the same way
at the same moment
on this same day

please bring that rain
please bring that rain
please bring that rain

Smoke rises
from the east
and I am leaving here
to find some peace

please bring that rain
please bring that rain
please bring that rain
Track Name: Leavin' Here
When i've gone oh
when i've gone
when i've gone away oh
will you miss me
will you miss me
will you miss me
will you miss me

as soon as that sun does rise
as soon as that sun does rise
well I am leavin here i'm leaving here
i'm leaving hear i'm leaving here

dont tell me to stay my friend
dont tell me to stay my friend
I might get lost
I might get lost
I might get lost
I might get lost

when I've gone oh
when i've gone
when i've gone away
will you miss me
will you miss me
will you miss me
will you miss me
Track Name: Redemption
Momma she told me
that I had a heart of gold
but i've cheated lied and i've stole
I've hurt those I love most

please
push me down on bended knees
keep my head bowed to that floor
and always give my thanks

remind me
of my humility
and I'm stretching screaming please
I know that I've done wrong

help me to feel
safe and overcome
joyous and redone
I've stepped out of the fire

forgive me
for all you I've hurt and scared
I never meant to share
my demons with the world

and please see
I'm a torn up human being
I want to cry and sing
and let them know I care

Momma she told me
that I had a heart of gold
but I've cheated lied and I've stole
I've hurt those I love most
