Denver, Colorado, USA

Experimental ambient psychedelic band from Denver Colorado interested in creating textural soundscapes influenced by hazy mountain passes, the cinema of Stan Brakhage and early 70's Miles Davis.


Woodsman is an experimental ambient post-psychedelic band based in Denver, CO. The quartet contains two totemic percussionists and two sonic animators who employ electric guitars, feedback loops, and recorded samples to build the dreamy astral soundscapes that define Woodsman’s sound. Influenced by hazy mountain passes, the cinema of Stan Brakhage, and early 1970’s improvisational recordings by Miles Davis Woodsman has crafted aural offerings that are uniquely their own.

Since 2008, they have released a full length 12” LP on Mexican Summer, as well as two compact discs and two cassette tapes on their own Fire Talk label. They are constantly exploring and pushing the boundaries of what they are able to do both live and in the studio; always one step ahead of their latest recording.
