Woven Green continues to wow fans with their exceptional high-energy performances at notable area venues and festivals such as Hard Rock Cafe, Jammin Java, Rock and Roll Hotel, Capital Pride, and many more! Since its release in November of 2009 their debut EP has been nominated for a prestigious Washington Area Music Award (“Wammie”) in the pop-rock category. Woven Green has also been awarded first prize for the Relix Magazine Jam Off Competition for their song “Sixth Sun” and is featured on the Relix CD sampler in the November 2010 issue. The song was also awarded honorable mention in the 27th Annual Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest. Additionally, the band received an award for their song “Between Worlds” in March 2010 for Mike Pender’s Bandwars Competition. Woven Green is currently recording their full length album which they expect to release sometime in 2014.
drumfish was formed in 1992 by Alex Petty, Larry France, Neil Richardson and Aaron Bertoglio. From its inception, the band has always melded a wide variety of musical sounds, cultures and genres. This approach has led the band to develop a signature sound forged in the fires of cross genre innovation, harnessed by an acoustic modern rock feel.
The band has always focused on writing and distributing their original music. In 1997 drumfish released its self-titled first CD. Before long the band was attracting the attention of various record labels and playing venues all across the United States and Canada. As the excitement for the band grew, the demand for a follow up CD grew with it. The band released “Ra’s Zoo” in 1998 to critical acclaim.
In 1999, due to uncontrollable circumstances, the band parted ways before their full potential was realized. However, there was still unfinished business, a message that needed to be sent. There was more music that had to be created and shared. In 2000, a year after the official breakup, drumfish recorded their third CD. Not to be outdone by their earlier releases, “Under Under Hill” went on to win a nationwide song writing contest and receive the strongest praise from critics yet.
But this third CD remained dormant for nine years, without artwork, labeling or packaging. This weighed on the foursome leading to attempted reunions in 2005 and 2007. Finally, in early 2009, the band decided it was time to release this long overdue work.
While the band was preparing for the release of the 3rd CD, they began writing new music. The material the band wrote during this period was fresh and invigorating. drumfish was now writing at a new level and doing its best work yet. More than that, there was an underlying message emerging from this new music, a message carrying a call to action for needed change in the world. The new work is filled with images of light and life.
In early 2010, drumfish began recording its 4th CD at Assembly Line Studios near Washington, DC with double-platinum award winning and Grammy winning engineer, Kevin "131" Gutierrez. Around this time, the band signed up bassist James Hanford to fill the position left by departing bassist and founding member Neil Richardson. The band spent the spring and early summer recording new material and “Memoirs” was completed in early June.
The group embarked on an international promotional campaign of the new record and added new member Margie Lang-Garnhart on violin, which added a whole new dimension to the band's sound. Boosted by early reviews, the band held a CD Release Concert on September 11th at Jammin’ Java in Vienna, VA. Hanford departed the band shortly afterwards and was replaced by new bassist Graham Drew, who had previously worked with the band as a guitarist during the development of the material that would ultimately become 'Memoirs'. The band continues to write and record, and are currently rehearsing for their upcoming show on May 12th at the State Theatre in Falls Church, Virginia, where they will record their fifth album 'Five Live' and film the entire event in high definition for release on DVD.
