Red Wood Rising
"Tulsa alterna-folk quintet Red Wood Rising’s second studio release, “These Fires,” seamlessly spans the stylistic ground among bluegrass-tinged folk, poppy college rock and adult alternative." -Jarrod Gollihare, Tulsa People
"With the crystal clear voice of Isaac Herbert and enough folk influences from the quintet to make this rock album soar, Red Wood Rising deserves attention for this impressive second studio album. The songwriting is deep and explores hard subjects with instrumentation that keeps you listening again and again. This is an album to seek out." -Jerry Wofford, Tulsa World
"If you’re into enthusiastic collections of tunes that don’t shy away from a soaring melody, a huge hook, a new idea (or seven), and interesting juxtapositions, go for Red Wood Rising’s These Fires." -Stephen Carradini, Independant Clauses
