Bio

Tom Woodward is the singer / songwriter for three bands: The Mating Season, The Henchmen & Weekend of Noise. He also records and performs as a solo artist. He is heavily inspired by the voice of Jacques Brel, the words of Kurt Vonnegut & the movies of Werner Herzog. Often compared to Bob Dylan in his looks and style, Tom likes to think of himself as more of a seventies punk rocker who just happens to express his vomit-laden soul with an acoustic guitar instead of a distortion pedal and a two piece backing band (though his band The Mating Season incorporates all these things).
