The astrological bodies have align for this one!!! Now, I’m am one of the least mystical people out there. Mysticism is actually a big turn off that I have to be carefull not the let flare up when meeting new people. But the crew and I were sitting in the kitchen at the recording studio, about to record this wonderful song, “Lucky,” when I pulled this prophesy out of my yummy fortune cookie. We all just stopped moving and stared for a second and the started screaming. We then nailed it in the studio. Can’t wait to share.

Win music from Wooden Rings and We/Or/Me!
The Examiner had some nice this to say about our music recently: October 2, 2013 Wooden Rings is so much more than the typical chamber pop ensemble, and their unique approach to arranging has quickly attracted the local media. ‘Finding Me’ left us breathlessly searching for answers. That and other introspective tracks from 2012’s self-titled debut inspired interviews on WXRT’s Local Anesthetic, WTTW’s Chicago Tonight and WBEZ’s Morning Shift with Tony Sarabia. Part of the allure is the lyrics — “Well worn, engraved, familiar but strange, the rings we wore everyday…” it’s that ability they have to take the everyday object and turn it into something tangible and communicative, that is memorable. It’s the translucent beauty of acoustic strings that introduce so many of their soulful ballads as well as the collection of instruments that blend and deepen the theme: xylophone to reed, nylon string to electric bass. We’re whipped through a myriad of emotions when vocalist /songwriter Ramah D. Jihan Malebranche sings the chilling refrain in ‘When I Knew.’ With four tracks on their current EP, which was recorded at Electrical Audio here in Chicago and will be released this month at Old Town School of Folk Music, Wooden Rings is eager to share more of their bounty. WHO: Wooden Rings WHAT: EP Release WHERE: Old Town School of Folk Music, 4545 N. Lincoln Avenue, Chicago. WHEN: Thursday October 24, 8 PM, $15

“Wooden Rings, an eclectic and ambitious ensemble from Chicago, have managed to encapsulate a sound so uniquely diverse, it quickly finds roots in the hearts of any honest music fan. Although their sound is self-described as “acoustic chamber pop,” the amount of honesty and emotion expelled through their music creates such a direct connection to the listener that it’s as if their songs were being written just for you.”-Old Town School of Folk Music
