About The Wood Brothers
The two brothers Oliver Wood (Guitars, vocals) and Chris Wood (Acoustic Bass, Electric Bass, Harmonica, Vocals) came together as a band quite late, after having previously performed separately in different parts of the USA. Chris Wood had been writing music history for over two decades in New York City with the internationally renowned jazz trio Medeski, Martin & Wood, and Oliver Wood directed the locally popular Roots & Blues Rock Combo King Johnson in Atlanta between the mid-1990s and 2005. Starting in 2005, they developed their common cause with a clearer reference to the musical roots of their youth: Blues & Bluegrass, Mountain Folk & Country, Soul & Songwriting. With their third band member, Jano Rix (drums, percussion), The Wood Brothers have expanded their spectrum and live possibilities significantly and gained a more roots-rocking Americana touch, in which they cleverly include Jam Rock, Gospel, Funk, Reggae and fusion rock.
