Berkshires-based Woodson Black is a swiss army knife of creativity: singer, musician, photographer, director, writer, videographer, designer, and producer. Under the name Haux, he released his debut EP All We’ve Known last year to great acclaim. Now, he’s back to bless the world with more of his multimedia skills, dropping a new EP, Something to Remember, on March 30. He’s just put out new single “Ricochet”, which encompasses his electronic-folk sound in a vulnerable and floating track.
After moving into an empty apartment with his girlfriend, Haux only had his prized Bechstein piano to fill the space. Recalling the sad history told by the woman who sold it to him of the piano being in her family for years until her husband left, Haux said, “That story hit me hard and was all that I could think about when I sang, “If I’m the rock, you’re the ricochet.”” This inspiration resulted in a stunning track, filling a soundscape of intrigue, emotion, and mellow instrumentals.
Haux’s sophomore EP, Something to Remember, will be out March 30, with an accompanying short film. Until then, check out “Ricochet” here:
