guitarist-songwriter-sort-of-singer joe woodard, who has traversed multiple byways of a blurry musical personality, comes home… or at least one home, as a self-described “faux folkie.” in-between working with groups Headless Household, flapping, Flapping, Dudley, Ballroom, and other projects, woodard has been working on between, for eight years. guests: glen phillips, bruce winter, ellen turner, allegra heidelinde, tom lackner, chris symer, dick dunlap, sally barr, bill flores, nate birkey, gabe lackner, robinson eikenberry… 

“In the best tracks, Woodard, guitarist in Santa Barbara’s Headless Household, combines thoughtful, unexpected guitar playing, intellectually twisted yet painfully honest lyrics and heartfelt singing.” ~Jennifer Kelly, splendid e-zine

“songs of quiet loneliness, yes, but always with a twist in the tale.”                                                 

~Ted Mills, Santa Barbara Independent
