Former MyChildren MyBride bassist Joe Lengson has emerged as The Woodsman’s Babe, a sound far from the heavy chugs and guttural screams of his previous endeavor. Influenced and inspired more so by the likes of Fleet Foxes, The National and The Beatles, Lengson’s solo effort carries soft and delicate tones coupled with poetic introspective lyrics detailing personal stories, relationship woes and youthful observations.

I wrote many words about her and our experiences we shared.”
