In the beginning was the forest: Inspired by an old family legend, cousins Mike Kolb and Jörg Szameitat spent half a year in the quiet seclusion of a Canadian forest - in a log cabin, with little more than two guitars and a stove. It was during this time that the two realized they needed to be singer-songwriters and form a band. They called themselves Giftwood, after the forest where they found their musical destiny. The songs they have been writing since then are melodic and lyrical, outrageously catchy and always profound. A balancing act that Giftwood consciously maintain and thus confidently build on the tradition of earlier singer-songwriters. It's no coincidence that their two-part singing suggests comparisons with Simon & Garfunkel.
