About the Band

Wooden Rings, a project from Haitian immigrant Ramah Jihan Malebranche, is new to the triangle. Ramah blends progressive folk and rock into lush, original compositions, crafting poignant songs that resonate deeply. Amidst personal upheaval, Ramah began writing music while working construction in 2010, leading to the formation of Wooden Rings—a delicate acoustic chamber group aiming to captivate intimate venues. Their journey included attention-grabbing EPs like “Wooden Rings” (2012) and “Twisted & Tangled” (2013), spotlighted by WBEZ/NPR. After a hiatus, Wooden Rings returned in 2015 with an electric format captured on vinyl “Heliocentric,” released just before the pandemic.

Wooden Rings was formed in Chicago and performed in the Midwest extensively before the pandemic. Post pandemic, Ramah moved to Raleigh, North Carolina to be closer to family and stave off winter depression. The band is slowly rebuilding itself and building a following with music from the Wooden Rings catalog.

“The eerie, methodical construction of Wooden Rings’ music sounds characteristically Chicago. This lush, multilayered brand of chamber pop might not be the most popular sound in town, but its roots can be found in acts who’ve grabbed national and international acclaim…the vision is precise and haunting in its beauty and strength.” – Chicago Tribune
