XPN Welcomes The Wood Brothers

World Cafe Live

3025 Walnut Street Philadelphia PA 19104
  • Thursday March 22nd 2012

Oliver and Chris Wood grew up in Boulder, Colorado. Sons of a poet and a microbiologist, they both instead took up music. Oliver moved to Atlanta and became a southerner while Chris moved to New York City and became a Yankee. While in Atlanta, Oliver soaked up the roots of blues, the soul of the south, and found he had a talent for writing and singing songs. His band, King Johnson toured mostly in the southern states. Meanwhile, Chris was living in Manhattan playing everything from free jazz to rock and roll. This is where he met his band mates to form Medeski Martin & Wood.

Now, the Wood Brothers have begun a collaboration that combines their shared childhood influences with everything they've learned since leaving home. Their music has a rootsy feel that blends blues, folk and rock music in a guitar/bass duo.
