MUSIC NEWS: Scott Stapp (CREED) Guitarist ANDY WOOD Releases New Solo Double-Album "Caught Between the Truth and a Lie"

Knoxville, TN guitar guru ANDY WOOD may be recognized as the multi-talented lead guitarist for Scott Stapp (founding frontman of multi-platinum rockers Creed), but is charging out on his own with a brand new, 24-track (acoustic/electric) double album, entitled Caught Between The Truth and a Lie, out today via HOLMZ Music/Andy Wood Music LLC.

Caught Between The Truth and a Lie includes 24 total tracks, with the title song 'The Truth...The Lie' being featured on both the acoustic side as a bluegrass tune, and on the electric side as a fusion instrumental.  The album, as a whole, ranges from dark ballads, adventurous fusion, barn-burning bluegrass, and thoughtfully crafted songs.  Some surprises occur along the way, such as a cover of Led Zeppelin's, 'Fool in the Rain,' arranged as an all-acoustic instrumental with a finger style arrangement of the iconic keyboard melody, and a mandolin carrying the duties of Robert Plant's vocal line.

 

The record isn't solely an instrumental record, though, as the acoustic side features songs with vocals sung by some fantastic guest talents.  Capped off with earthy acoustic blues and big rock instrumentals, this album is meant to take the listener on a musical expedition of how one musician can live in two opposing and completely separate musical worlds at once, caught between the truth of honest acoustic music and the lie of soaring electric guitars through monstrous layers of production.

 

Caught Between The Truth and a Lie was produced by Wood and Mike Dearing at HIFI Studios in Knoxville, TN.
