James Woodard, born in Miami and raised in San Antonio, is the guitarist for instrumental band The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, which was recently named Best Instrumental Band by the 2012 San Antonio Current Music Awards. They were simultaneously recognized in the Best Hard Rock, Best Hardcore, Best Heavy Metal and Best Drummer categories.
The amorphous musical giant known as The Grasshopper Lies Heavy defy typical categorization. The band has released 8 records in 6 years, each exploring varying musical territories while maintaining a common thread: crushingly heavy, wall-of-sound music; sometimes melodic, sometimes atonal, speaker shredding, enigmatic, and emotive.
James created the original soundtrack and soundscape for Cavern in collaboration with Bob Dog Catlin from Doghouse Audio Laboratory.
