WOODLANDS music is a new creative expression from the Woodlands Group of Churches in Bristol, gathering collaborators from across the church to make art that looks, sounds and even smells like Bristol.
We want to see our city revived to live as God intended, and we believe that the flourishing of the arts is a part of that - we aim to be real, honest, and vulnerable with our work.
On the 25th of January we release our first album; 'Mixtape #1'. This eclectic mix of songs taps into the many sounds of Bristol – house, drum & bass, indie folktronica, vapourwave – and features myriad found sounds sampled from the city's streets. The songs are honest and heartfelt, reflecting the struggles and celebrations of a life of faith. Mixtape #1 is the culmination of over a year's work, with contributions from songwriters, producers, singers, poets, instrumentalists, animators, videographers, artists and designers. We hope to offer something new to the palette of contemporary Christian worship music, and in doing so, to reveal a little more of the glory of God in our city.
