Dogwood Tales' songs have a spiritual aspect that derives more from the Blue Ridge Mountains than the Church. Their lyricism grows out of a serious commitment to literature and specifically the Southern-Gothic canon. Too Hard To Tell carries the weighted stories and one-liners often found in the songs of American folk music with special attention to tone and emotion. The songs speak of scenarios and heavy stations of life and death in small-town America. There is a different aspect of time that exists in these places, a slowness, yes, but also an immediate and daily reality of birth, life, and death. Dogwood Tales have captured something akin to a lightning-bug in a mason jar on this ethereal and rich debut effort. Dogwood Tales continue to tour extensively with brand new music on the horizon for 2019, as well as an appearance at this year’s Red Wing Roots Music Festival in Mount Salon, VA.
Virginia-born, Brooklyn-based alt-country singer David Haught melds rock 'n' roll, Americana, bluegrass, and honky-tonk influences into a self-described "Different Kind of Country" that, above all, stays true to its straightforward storytelling roots.
