For more than 17 years singer and songwriters Emilio and Kelly Miller-Lopez have been co-writing, producing and performing original mythic music and co-producing large scale live events. After almost two decades of distillation Woodland has found a musical tribe in the talents of master cellist Adam Hurst, bassist and didgeridoo artist Donald Brodsky, woven together on the talents of Theo Halpert, one of the most exceptional drummers in the Pacific Northwest.

“Mythical, deep and dark, ambient with a slight jazzy twist. Emilio and Kelly Miller-Lopez have created their own mythical world, a place and a band called Woodland.” – Pagan Radio Network
An American contemporary of renowned European artists like Faun, who contributed to their most recent album, “Seasons In Elfland: Shadows” and Omnia, the band’s music features a variety of folk and electric instrumentation, combining ambient and acoustic for an experience of potent live improvisational energy.
Woodland’s latest album, “Secrets Told” is a musical journey into mediterranean and classical themes, exploring the folk religion of the old world and the ancient mythos of southern Europe. With the romantic cello sounds of Adam Hurst, and the lyrically rich harmony vocals of Kelly and Emilio Miller-Lopez, the music is emotionally evocative and embedded with symbolism and poetic meaning. The band will highlight the new work in their live set, which will draw upon a the musical talents of an all-star lineup of Woodland musical collaborators.
For almost two decades Woodland has been working in partnership with Robert Gould of Imaginosis, co-creating live concert events where mythic music and enchanting art find a crossroads. Together Imaginosis and Woodland founded Faerieworlds LLC, the company that created Faerieworlds and FaerieCon amongst other mythic events. In addition to playing at Faerieworlds events across the US, band has also performed and headlined at events including Trolls et Legendes in Belgium, The Labyrinth Masquerade in Los Angeles, An Evening in Elfland in Glastonbury UK, The Fairy Ball in Cornwall UK, Earthdance in San Francisco and The Witches Ball in London.
For many, Woodland represents the mythic musical heart of Faerieworlds. The initiators who helped open the gates, and who return once again, inviting us to these Fey Midsummer revels. Don’t miss this extra-special performance!
