“Twisted & Tangled” EP Release Party at Old Town School

Friends, this is going to be a wonderful show!!!

Wooden Rings will be performing all of the songs off of our new audience funded EP Twisted & Tangled, as heard on The Morning Shift hosted by Toni Sarabia on WBEZ. People are calling these songs some of our most powerful, mature work to date. We will be selling the EP for $6 and include merchandise packages, with buttons, shirts, and small posters so be sure to bring a little extra to take it home with you. Old town is a wonderful venue with great sound, comfortable spaces, and professional staff. The have a nice bar- this is definitely a date night.
“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.”

WBEZ 91.5 FM: The Morning Shift with Tony Sarabia

Chicago’s Wooden Rings are gearing up for a new release this summer. The band’s 2012 self-titled debut received some lofty praise, locally. The four-piece is sometimes described as a chamber quartet, though a more rustic, sometimes folky sound seems to shine through more often than anything else. That rusticism, married with confessional lyrics, makes for melancholy songs drenched in the eternal longing for one’s better days. The band features Ramah Jihan (nylon-string guitar, lead vocals, songwriter), Justin Rodig (supporting vocal, clarinet, banjo, bells), Brett Bakshis (electric bass) and Marissa Deitz (cello). Wooden Rings stop The Morning Shift by for a preview of their forthcoming record, Twisted & Tangled, and chat a little bit about their music. The rustic confessional of Wooden Rings by WBEZ’s Morning Shift is licensed under a Creative Commons License.
Wooden Rings just played The Morning Shift today and Tony Sarabia was so easy to talk to. Thanks to Tony and to all the crew for listening. It’s such an amazing complex at Navy Pier. Take a listen: https://soundcloud.com/morningshiftwbez/wooden-rings-plays-songs-from

Halfway through our month and we have met our goal!

We send our sincerest appreciation and eternal “thanks” to all of you that have taken the time and shared your bread to invest in this project. Though we have met our goal we’d still like for you to share the Kickstarter with your friends and families in case any of them want to share in this work, from it’s foundation, as well. Last night’s practice sealed the deal- this record is going to be something else. And to all of you that have pledged, I hope you are very excited about your winnings. With this sort of luck you all should try your hand at the stock market. Warmly, Ramah, Brett, Justin, Marissa and our families.

Kickstarter for “Twisted & Tangled” EP by Wooden Rings

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/241744393/wooden-rings-twisted-and-tangled-ep

Dear Friends, We have begun a Kickstarter campaign to help materialize a collection of 4 songs that we plan to have ready to release in May. This collection will be known as the Twisted & Tangled EP. This is some of our most vigorous work! We hope to make a recording that captures what we hear when we play together as a responsive, connected unit rather than the piece-by-piece approach we took when recording our first record, Wooden Rings 2012. If you like what we do, our musical ideas, lyrics, choices to do our own thing with everything we are, please consider giving. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/241744393/wooden-rings-twisted-and-tangled-ep Thanks in advance, Warmly, Ramah, Justin, Marissa, and Brett and all our families
