About The Wood Brothers
Sometimes, siblings are so close they often can't stand to be separated. Other times, they feel the urge to grow apart. In some cases, they end up together again.
This is the story of Oliver and Chris Wood – aka the Wood Brothers – who grew up in Boulder, Colorado and left the area after graduating high school. Oliver went off to Atlanta, Georgia while Chris ended up in New York. The former, a guitarist, had taken up songwriting and formed the blues-based King Johnson, an outfit which toured the Southern circuit. Chris, on the other hand, began playing jazz and rock in New York and was later part of the trio Medesk, Martin & Wood.
When Oliver and Chris came together again, especially at various family functions, they began combining their musical talents and jamming together. After about 15 years apart, the two finally performed at a show in North Carolina. Shortly thereafter, they began recording together and landed a contract with Blue Note Records.
The brothers, who had privately released the "Live at Tonic EP," finally saw the debut of their very first studio album, "Ways Not to Lose," in 2006. It featured Kenny Wollesen on five tracks, was produced by John Medeski and recorded at Allarie Studios in Shokan, New York. The project was not only the Amazon.com editors' number one pick in folk for that year, it also landed on National Public Radio's "Overlooked 11" list of 2006. The "Ways…" album has since been followed by four more studio efforts, including 2013's "The Muse."
