Floodwood is a new, progressive americana string rock band hailing from Upstate, NY. Its members are veteran musicians who’ve performed on stages around the world over the last 20 years. They breathe fresh life into timeless acoustic music & play with the dexterity & chops of seasoned pros. Floodwood will set out on tour later this month, followed by the release of their debut album slated to drop this Fall.
Al Schnier & Vinnie Amico, not only play together in the premier jamband, moe., but they’ve also spent over 10 years recording & touring with the Americana group Al & The Transamericans. Likewise, Jason Barady spent over 10 years recording & touring with the Bluegrass group Wooden Spoon from Taos, until returning to his hometown in central, NY. Nick Piccininni is a largely self taught violinist, who learned his bluegrass chops the old fashioned way – in festival picking circles & Bluegrass Festivals. He’s an award winning banjo player & fiddler in high demand on the bluegrass circuit, who also spent 2 years on the road w/ The Abrams. Bass player, Zachary Fleitz is a Berklee Graduate & Hypnotic Clambake alumnus. Zach joined forces w. Wooden Spoon & has played w. J & Nick for the last few years.
A note from the band…
We are excited to record these new tracks and share them with you. We are just now putting the finishing touches on this album, and we cannot wait to get these songs out to the world and radio. It takes a lot of money to do this, and we want to make sure we do it the RIGHT way. We have taken the last month and invested a lot in the recording, and now we have to go through mastering, manufacturing, and promoting this record so that with your support, we can get the word out on the band and the music! The momentum that these songs and this album has is already showing some amazing results, here are the tour dates we have already, with a lot more to come!
