For 20 years singer and songwriters Emilio and Kelly Miller-Lopez have been co-writing, producing and performing original mythic music and co-producing large scale live events. Joined at Faerieworlds this summer for a celebration of 20 years of their music will be master cellist Adam Hurst, bassist and didgeridoo player Donald Brodsky, drummer/percussionist Theo Halpert and keyboard/guitarist Tim Mcloughlin, with several other featured guests. This special performance will feature songs from their four past albums starting with 1999 production HERITAGE, as well as a set of new music from their upcoming psychedelic project THE AFTERLIFE OF STARS.
“Woodland’s “Shadows” is a lament for the Goddess…a deep and meaningful recording” – Donovan
“Mythical, deep and dark, ambient with a slight jazzy twist. Emilio and Kelly Miller-Lopez have created their own mythical world, a place and a band called Woodland.” – Pagan Radio Network
An American contemporary of renowned European artists like Faun, who contributed to their most recent album, “Seasons In Elfland: Shadows” and Omnia, the band’s music features a variety of folk and electric instrumentation, combining ambient and acoustic for an experience of potent live improvisational energy.
Woodland’s latest album, “Secrets Told” is a musical journey into mediterranean and classical themes, exploring the folk religion of the old world and the ancient mythos of southern Europe. With the romantic cello sounds of Adam Hurst, and the lyrically rich harmony vocals of Kelly and Emilio Miller-Lopez, the music is emotionally evocative and embedded with symbolism and poetic meaning. The band will highlight the new work in their live set, which will draw upon a the musical talents of an all-star lineup of Woodland musical collaborators.
