Wovenhand is the musical project of enigmatic American singer-songwriter and guitarist David Eugene Edwards, formerly the front-man of 16 Horsepower. Silver Sash is the new Wovenhand album out today, Friday February 4th 2022, via Glitterhouse. The new album was created in collaboration with Chuck French of legendary American (post) hardcore outfit Planes Mistaken For Stars. Silver Sash follows the acclaimed Wovenhand albums Refractory Obdurate (2014) and Star Treatment (2016). Silver Sash was composed, recorded and produced in their homes in Denver by David and Chuck, along with engineer Jason Begin.
Both David Eugene Edwards and Chuck French have known each other for quite a long time. Recently they found the time to write this astonishing album. “The music was recorded in my house in Denver with the help of our dear friend Jason Begin. David recorded his vocals at his house (which also happens to be three blocks away). I had a bunch of music in various states of existence, of various ages, languishing in my computer. I made a playlist for David and we just started to devour them bit by bit. Some were scrapped, but most were utilized,” says French. The making of Silver Sash has taken longer than for any previous Wovenhand album. It took more than four years until both artists were satisfied with the outcome.
Over the last two decades, David Eugene Edwards’ prolific work in both Wovenhand and the legendary 16 Horsepower has influenced and inspired a generation of musicians throughout the expansive alternative music world. The band cannot be described in traditional terms. Their sound is an organic weave of neo-folk, post rock, punk, old-time, and alternative sounds. All coming together as a vehicle for David’s soulful expression and constant spiritual self-exploration.
