If I'm not playing a show, I'm taking a motorcycle trip." He's staying busy in between gigs and his job at the Pepsi plant in Corvallis, he said. "I've been busking a lot lately in Eugene and Salem." He's scheduled to play Satur- day, Sept. 2, at The Point restaurant, where he performed to a capacity- audience show early in The Point's new (this year) concert summer series on June 9. He also has ap- peared at some wineries, weddings and festivals around the state. Woosley's band includes long- time collaborators Tim Meyers on the harmonica, vocals and guitar; Chuck Fitzsimons on the bass; and Charlie Fitzsimons on the drums. They recorded the new album at The Castle House in Lebanon. Nate Roos produced and mixed the al- bum and played a guitar solo on one track. It's really the band's first CD, Woosley said. "The last CD we did, 'From the Mountains to the Sea,' which is also available everywhere, that CD was flesh songs. We were excited. We recorded them at home." The band mainly recorded it for friends and family and used it as a demo to book gigs, Woosley said. ]'he new album features seven new recordings, but they're the band's defining sound. "Some of these songs are 10 years old," Woosley said. "The rea- son we have a following is some of the songs on this CD. "We went in there with the idea of him just miccing us up and capturing what we already had," Woosley said. "We had a really Jobe Woosley performs at The Point restaurant 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 2. Reservations required. (541) 367-1560 strong idea of what we wanted it to sound like." Recording live in separate rooms, recorded all seven songs over three days with minimal over- dubs and tracking afterward, Woos- ley said. Overall, the album is more professional than the group's first album. "I'd say it's a lot more re- fined." Woosley, 29, graduated from Sweet Home High School in 2006. In the eighth grade, he and Sweet Home Junior High classmate Charlie Fitzsimons had a pop-punk band, playing Blink 182-style music with Mike Webster, Woosley said. They made a CD, sold it at the junior high and bought a drum kit. "Me and Charlie went on to play old country with his dad (Chuck)," Woosley said in a 2010 interview. Webster went on to play metal. "Chuck has brought out our ac- tual style that we like playing, like taking Merle Haggard and doubling the tempo." They went on to different things, playing with Chuck Fitzsi- mons as a summer project. Woosley and Charlie Fitzsi- mons have played all kinds of mu- sic, ranging from emo and punk to metal and techno, for 10 years, Woosley said. "We spent years trying to fig- ure out our niche." They've found it, Woosley said. The new album continues the sing- er-songwriter, folk and Americana style the group recorded in its pre- vious album.
