Their new album, The Place I Left Behind confirms that The Deep Dark Woods capture lonesome yearning at its loveliest. The album illuminates folk traditions without stripping the shadows of roots music history. The Deep Dark Woods wake the ghosts of Appalachia with their prairie gothic pyre-side tales.
“It’s easy to see why The Place I Left Behind was nominated for ‘Roots and Traditional Album of the Year’ in the 2012 Juno Awards. It’s a cleverly constructed, well-written and cohesive piece of work.” – Daily Telegraph.
