Backwood is songwriter/singer/guitarist Mike Wood and singer/guitarist Anne Hart Back. Joined by Lloyd Williams on fender bass and Nick Weiland on guitar and mandolin, this Ohio group produces a very simple and quiet folk sound with emphasis on the lyric. ‘I Am My Brother’s Brother’, ‘Love Is Like A Circle’, ‘We Reach Out For Love’, ‘God Gives Freely’ and ‘The Earth Is Filled’ are some of the titles of Mike’s songs. Eighteen songs in all, a few of which are short liturgical refrains. Both Mike and Anne have agreeable voices well-suited to the genre. The original custom press has photo of a barn and farm on the front. Later picked up by Pretzel (a tiny California Catholic label), the cover replaced with an illustration of a tree.
