Scott Wooldridge’s new solo album mixes one part music scene veteran, one part acoustic chamber-rock, a wink to Faces-era pub-rock rowdiness, and adds a generous helping of social commentary to create a work that’s both seasoned and fresh. Scott, who left Milwaukee more than a decade ago after fronting the early alt-country act the Wooldridge Brothers in that city, has settled into the Minneapolis music scene and created a new sound, one that features mostly acoustic instruments and Scott’s distinctive, well-worn vocals.

“I wanted something different from the traditional rock band approach, but after playing open mics and solo shows, I still wanted to add some interesting sounds to the songs,” Scott said. “I was looking for just the right mix of rhythm and melody, while staying true to a wood–and-wire ethic.”

The new album reflects that experimentation, using a range of instruments that include violin, viola, harmonium, 12-string guitar, mandolin, pedal steel guitar, and electric piano. Throughout it all, Scott’s acoustic guitar and vocals tells stories of middle-class meltdowns, coffee shop disconnections, and getting tangled up in social networks. Add in a few love songs and mid-life musings, and the album’s 12 songs presents one man’s recipe for outlasting the blues.

Currently planning a multi-city tour to support the new album, Scott is also still active with the Wooldridge Brothers. Both acts did a joint Kickstarter project to finish off their respective album projects, and the WBs album is expected later in 2015. That effort, produced in part by John Munson of the New Standards and Semisonic, features the WBs’ Milwaukee/Chicago/Minneapolis lineup.

“We’re trying to hit the cities where the majority of our Kickstarter supporters are found,” said Scott. “These records depended on our fan support to be completed and we want give our fans a chance to hear the songs live.”

Full Flower -Flowers spring forth in abundance this month. Some Algonquin tribes knew this full Moon as the Corn Planting Moon or the Milk Moon.
