The Wood Brothers

Rock, Blues, Folk
Oliver Wood, of the blues-roots band King Johnson, and Chris Wood, of the instrumental jazz trio Medeski Martin & Wood, grew up in Boulder, CO but never really found their own musical chemistry until after they'd forged their own, individual paths for 15 years. After years of musical and geographical separation, they decided to unite and create rootsy music that blends blues, folk and rock music in a way that melds their sibling harmonies and the music they loved as kids together into one package. They are currently on tour to support their latest release, 'Live, Volume 2: Nail and Tooth,' a live set collection to be released on August 28 from Southern Ground.
