Since 2012 respected Hudson Valley based guitarist and vocalist Jay Woodruff has led alternative rock band Of The Atlas through a colorful range of styles and incarnations. Started initially as a solo act by the enthusiastic and longtime member of the thriving and diverse regional underground rock community, Woodruff fleshed the group out into a powerful blend of introspective indie, vibrant art rock and infectious power pop in the years leading up to their latest Brian Goss produced ‘The Moutain EP’. Of The Atlas is certainly the most personal, well regarded and important project Woodruff has had his name on yet. In a less cynical world OTA might even redeem pop as honest music while keeping their feet planted in the fertile soil of rock n roll’s elaborate and evolving history.

The Mountain EP as a release features some of Woodruff’s most focused and mature songwriting to date, sure to thrill fans of everything from Teenage Fanclub to Dinosaur Jr to even a few Springsteen supporters. There is a feeling of earthy awareness under the skin of these songs, the sense that we are smaller than the world around us but nonetheless can find the strength of heart to weather the storms, raise our flags or sails and sing our hearts out until the morning comes.
