"Gentle yet haunting, mysterious yet familiar, the music of the husband and wife duo The Woodlands is full of intrigue."

"Hannah muses about daydreams and longings while Samuel fills the sonic atmosphere with enchanting melodies."
---KCRW (Today's Top Tune)

"Serene mosaic of fairytale-like sound."

The Woodlands are Hannah and Samuel, a wife and husband indie pop duo with singer-songwriter underpinnings, who create lush and emotive songs. Their releases include a debut indie folk album, a synthpop remix EP, and a separate acoustic project called Quiet Arrows. They have drawn praise from international radio, press and blogs, and their songs have been featured in over 70 film, television and commercial placements (Sundance, MTV, HBO, Showtime, ABC, BBC Radio, Anthropologie, Fashion Week NY, etc.). They have a new full-length album and music videos en route for early autumn, and have already begun writing and recording additional future albums.

Hannah and Samuel discovered one another over a summer conversation in their Idaho hometown. The pair found they shared many mutual longings, one of which was to live abroad. They moved to Guatemala, and many other international outings followed thereafter. After much exploration of their interests, they decided to pursue creating music, and moved to Portland where they settled in for several years to write songs together. They released an album and eventually left the city for a small California town on the central coast where they now live and continue making music.
