“Hollywood:” City of Florescent Lights, fake tans, and bleach blond hair.
“Holl. E. Woods:” The unapologetic underbelly of a city, decorated by society’s outcasts, led by
the red-headed mohawk queen, Eryn Woods and the namesake of her latest album.
Recently featured on MTV’s The Jersey Shore,VH1’s Beverly Hills Fabulous and VH1’s Mob Wives. Eryn Woods is a 21 year old Louisiana native out to redefine the image of the “pop princess.” The black swan of the bubble gum world, Eryn has been touring the nation and rallying her “kupcake” army in an effort to change the status quo. “Everything isn’t glitter and glam, even with all the fame,” notes Woods. “It’s about finding yourself and maturing, and owning the blood, sweat, and tears, it takes to get there.”
Eryn’s career gained momentum in 2005 after reaching the semi-finals of Gospel Dream, a nationally televised solo vocal competition, where she caught the eye of Grammy nominated singer Kelly Price. Her musical pedigree includes five years of vocal training and over 12 years of combined musical study.
“Hollywood” conjures up the images of “making it,” and this is at the core of Holl.E.Woods. The entire album is centered around the dichotomy of what the general public deems as “normal” and what is “real,” and celebrates the individuality of people.
“Gangstas, Geeks & Freaks” is the national anthem of Holl. E. Woods, praising the outcasts that the world shuns. “The world judges people that are out of the norm, but in reality they are the same people who rule the world. It's about accepting your individuality and owning it."
“Laughin at Ya” is a malice response to a relationship gone sour. “Revenge can be sweet, when done with humility and grace,” reminds Eryn. “ The grass is not always greener on the other side.”
Eryn has shared the stage with the likes of Robyn, Hey Monday, and The Ready Set. A favorite among many, she has also performed at major PRIDE festivals across the country. Keep an ear out for future music placements on Showtime, MTV and VH1 to coincide with the album release. Holl. E. Woods is due to hit the streets May 24, 2011.
