The Woodlands are Hannah and Samuel, a wife and husband indie folk-pop duo from the central coast of California. They craft songs of melancholy and mirth that conjure faraway lands and the longing of lovers with timeless imagery that unearths both the shadow of tragedy and the glisten of wonder.

After backpacking through Europe and Central America several years ago, they returned to the US and continued writing songs together. They found themselves in a corner of their bedroom amidst an aged and worn wooden desk, elusive quiet night hours, and a homemade studio fort of blankets and pillows. There The Woodlands traveled the byways of one another's souls--seeking, listening and searching for words and sounds with which to share what they found. They independently recorded and produced their self-released debut album, which has been received with both national and international exposure and accolades.

The Woodlands have continued to mine the songwriting ore from the depths of their cavernous creativity. They created a synthpop remix EP (Heavy Hands Remix), a new indie folk pop full length album (Gems And Bones) as well as a new EP (Secret Language). More new albums are already in the works, as the writing and recording continues.

Samuel also writes and records on another project called Quiet Arrows -
