Athens, GA based pianist known as T.S. Woodward debuted a new video earlier this month via Dominar Films – outlining a plan to finally release his long-awaited concept album.  The project originally began production in 2013 before eventually transforming into a double-album with the addition of a live recording titled “In The Black Box” captured during Woodward’s 2015 graduation from the University of Georgia for studies in Popular Music Composition, a major which T.S. created himself after initially being declined entry into the Hugh Hodgson School of Music.

Woodward commented that the album is a “surrealist’s guide to navigating the dark descent into and out of a dream. Everything is complete except the physical release!”

Rewards for donations include everything from a digital version of the LP – all the way up to – T.S. delivering an actual piano to your home, spot tuning included!

Catch T.S. Woodward and his ensemble at this year’s Athfest – Friday June 24th on the Hull St. Stage at 7:15pm!
