Quiet and imposing, Ryan Boldt casts a long shadow no matter the hour. As the principal songwriter and vocalist of The Deep Dark Woods, a band that has received international praise for their swirling and moody folk rock, Boldt has created a world of ramblers and downabouts, hopeless romantics and tragic heroes. There’s a gothic, old world sensibility to Boldt’s craft that feels like a fog rolling across the Moorland, heavy and poetic.
Broadside Ballads, now available on vinyl, is Boldt’s solo debut. The collection of traditional folk songs was released on Big White Cloud Records, an artist-run label collective Boldt recently co-founded fellow Deep Dark Woods member Clayton Linthicum (of Kacy & Clayton) and Shuyler Jansen.
