    The Steel Woods’ sophomore Thirty Tigers album, Old News, represents a creative leap for the southern roots rock songwriting team of Alabama native Wes Bayliss and his North Carolina partner Jason “Rowdy” Cope, who completed their first recordings barely months after they first met.Recorded in Asheville, NC at Echo Mountain Studios, the site of an old church during a six-day break in a hectic touring schedule, the new double-vinyl disc (the follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed Straw in the Wind) features more original songs and, for the first time, the whole band participated –including the rhythm section of bassist Johnny Stanton and drummer Jay Tooke –playing in a single room, cutting the tracks virtually live.“We really hone in on what we do, our strengths as a band, establishing a musical identity,”explains Wes about their latest effort. “The first album, we were still figuring out our sound, so what came out, came out. This time, we had a premeditated blueprint, a real plan.”The songwriting partnership between Bayliss and Cope continues to grow, mature and blossom.
