"Equally at home with screaming electric guitars as with delicate fingerpicked folk melodies, Michael Wohl seamlessly integrates free-roaming influences into his musical vision. An open ear on his many travels has provided a sonic palette that is somehow as concise as it is open-range, melting influences and landscapes into an eccentric and at times mysterious solo style.
Wohl is a musician with one ear to the ground and another to the voice within, ever-transported down twisting roads by his instincts, interests, and experience. Bending genres is no strange thing to him -- it in their synthesis in which his music comes alive. Always learning, shifting, and exploring (though difficult to peg) the music is anchored by touchstones of folk, country, rock and blues. He does not look back as a re-enactor of bygone eras, but inward, towards wherever the music takes him. Buy the ticket, take the ride."
Press for new album, "Windblown Blues" (released Jan '17)
"It’s a record that tips its hat to hill country blues and dixie rags, but that could only be made in the Northwest. It’s elements, like our climate, seep under your skin, it’s weather clouds your head. It’s a deceptively experimental record, jumping from blues, to primitive guitar, to cosmic country at will." - American Standard Time
"Basks in a warm and organic creative spirit...Wohl himself remains at the core of Windblown Blues and is responsible for guiding it down its deceptively varied path. That becomes a significant task as the lush melodies of “I Said too Much” shift into the piano-and-guitar “Pajaro,” but Windblown Blues holds firm to a clean-sounding sensibility no matter what its arrangements might bring...a marked departure Wohl, and one that ultimately serves him well over the course of the record...this is genuine Americana and carries with it a ready familiarity." - The Obelisk
"...the album visits spots up and down (a) range of styles with a consistent commitment to musicianship and folk traditions. recommended." - Modern Folk Music of America
