Etherwood is undoubtedly one of the most promising young talents in the scene today. Originally from Lincoln and now living in London, Woody has already captured the imagination of thousands across the globe with his achingly beautiful beats and heartfelt melodies.
His first solo release was on Hospital Records – “Give It Up” – which appeared on the “Sick Music 3” compilation in November 2012, swiftly followed by the now iconic anthem “Spoken” which appeared on the “Hospitality Drum & Bass 2013” album, and of course, his most recent offering on Med School, “Unfolding” which opened the “New Blood 013” album in March 2013.
Early November 2013 saw the release of his highly anticipated self-titled debut album which garnered much speculation across the musical landscape. The album was heavily supported throughout the scene from a variety of artists including Netsky, Sub Focus and TC while also receiving plenty of airtime from a variety of Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJs.
After the overwhelming success of the album, “Woody” soon picked up the award for “Best Newcomer DJ” and “Best Newcomer Producer” at the 2013 D&B Arena awards, bagged a slot with BBC Radio 1Xtra’s “Xtra Talent” alongside Crissy Criss, and teamed up with Hospital’s Devonshire duo Fred V & Grafix to lay down the vocals on this year’s summer anthem “Forest Fires”. This forthcoming collaboration has already proved its potential for crossover success by being added to the Radio 1 Playlist over a month before release. As he continues to prove his versatility and talent, Hospital Records invited him to put together their first artist led mix album in over four years, which dropped at the end of May, entitled “Hospital Mixtape: Etherwood”.
His second album, “Blue Leaves”, was released on Med School in September 2015 and stole the hearts of all who explored the emotional landscape of Etherwood’s stunning music.
