MADNESS drummer DANIEL 'WOODY' WOODGATE will release a side-project album 'The Magic Line' on September 30th via his own DW Records label. The project is credited to the Magic Brothers which consists of Woody and his younger brother Nick Woodgate (with contributions from Woody's wife and daughter). The project is part of an ongoing collaboration with the UK charity Rethink Mental Illness, for whom Woody acts as an ambassador, following Nick's battle with mental health problems through his teens and twenties.
"This album is a culmination of the music we grew up with, and loved. Our tastes are far reaching, and obvious to anyone who likes the 70's,” says Woody. "Nick and I love writing songs together. Nick is a brilliant musician, and at heart a real sentimentalist. Mix that with my pop sensibility, and big production values and you get the Magic Brothers."
