Haux is the project of Berkshires-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Woodson Black. After a couple of EPs, he released his first full-length. Violence in A Quiet Mind is out now via Color Study. Co-produced by Woodson Black (Haux), his longtime collaborator Jamie Macneal, and Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman; credits include work on albums for St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens, Rhye, and Vagabon), the album was recorded between sessions at a seaside studio in Scotland and at New York City’s renowned Reservoir Studios.

The record finds Woodson processing tragedy and substance abuse across three generations of his family, and attempting to break that cycle. Check the full streaming below.
