DEEP DARK WOODS has been my most-played band since hearing them on the HearYa music blog a few years ago (their The Place I Left Behind was 4th on my Top 10 of 2011), I jumped at the chance to see them in Manchester last week (Feb 20), the third stop on their first trip outside North America.

Afterwards I sat down with frontman Ryan Boldt and bassist Chris Mason. (For more on the band and the album, no one’s said it better than HearYa)
