    Summer 2016: Fresh off their first US tour, the Italian-based band is preparing for the upcoming release of their debut record. Set for release in winter 2017, the album promises to be the full-on whomping portrayal of the hard-folk sound that already has people talking on both sides of the Atlantic (see below). With members from Tuscany, Salento, and Montana, the acoustic power-trio has materialized as a melting pot of music and culture, drawing comparisons to Gogol Bordello, ACDC, and even Ennio Morricone.

    Besides their unmistakably aggressive approach to playing acoustic guitars, Heavy Wood also features "the drawk", guitarist Rob Cavallo's own invention. The 7-string guitar/bass combination gives Cavallo (Faggiano, Puglia) the full range of a grand piano without need for effects or pedals. The band also features the powerful style of Matteo Flori (Abbadia San Salvatore, Tuscany) on drums, and extremely versatile vocals by both Cavallo, and the band's lone American member, Nate Kantner (Bozeman, Montana).

    Upon the release of the record, the band will be touring in both Italy and the US. Information on tour dates as well as news about the album can be found right here at heavywoodband.com, so stay tuned and get ready to re-think everything you thought you knew about acoustic...and Italian music!

    Primavera 2017: Gli Heavy Wood pubblicano il loro debut album dal titolo "Down in Italy", rigorosamente autoprodotto. Entrati in sala d'incisione solo dopo aver divorato centinaia di palchi su e giù per l'Italia (e recentemente anche negli USA), diffondono un rock unico, Made in Italy, fatto solo ed esclusivamente con chitarre classiche.

    Il loro punto di forza è la contagiante energia che trasmettono sia live che sul disco, ma cosa li contraddistingue dal resto della scena indie è il loro abile songwriting che mette in luce un sound internazionale e radiofonico.

    Gli Heavy Wood sono un melting pot di musica e cultura, paragonati spesso ad artisti come Gogol Bordello e persino Ennio Morricone. Al loro ascolto, Jesse Fink un biografo dei leggendari AC/DC, ha definito il loro genere: "un rock fuorilegge che a volte si incontra col metal."

    Non ultima, la loro dimistichezza nel rendere fruibili canzoni con testi in inglese, italiano e in dialetto pugliese; quest'ultime cantate addirittura dall'unico componente americano della band, Nate Kantner (Bozeman, Montana). Si caratterizzano anche per il Drawk™, un chitarrone a 7 corde ideato da Roberto Cavallo (Faggiano, Puglia) che gli permette di suonare basso e chitarra allo stesso tempo. Matteo Flori (Abbadia, Toscana), batterista dal tocco tribale e possente, chiude il cerchio. Tutto questo lo troverai sul primo volume di Down in Italy.
