Today is the official U.S. release date of Bob Woodruff's first new album in almost 20 years. The Year We Tried To Kill The Pain is out today Febuary 26th 2016 and is available to order at or in person at the big release event March 3rd at El Cid in Hollywood, CA.

It is released on my Steel Derrick Music label and I am so proud of it and of Bob. Bob's music is so much the real deal when it comes to classic song structure and rock and roll poetry. He's been compared to Springsteen and John Prine and rightly so. Bob also wrote with Doc Pomus in NYC so the pedigree speaks for itself. His music comes from country origins and you can hear that in, what is definitely a country record.

However Woodruff has moved on from straight up country on this new album. There's soul, rock and real jangle goin' on here. Pop fans take note. Soul fans give a listen. There are some classic contryfied soul including a reinvention of Stop In The Name Of Love…. yea….Woodruff re-recorded THAT song and you have to hear it to believe it. It is getting airplay on Sirius Satellite radio on rotation along with other tracks and other stations nationwide.

Woody is back! Congratulations Bob Woodruff on what is a 13 song tour de force album. It's incredible work and everyone should hear it, own it and help bring this great 90's country star back to the public eye. No one deserves it more. Listen to the songs You'll see!!

In the meantime, see ya March 3rd at El Cid in Hollywood at 8:30!! xxoo Nelson Bragg~
