The Wood Brothers to tour the Southeast & Midwest this Fall



Submitted by Calabro Music Media on Wed, 08/13/2014 - 11:24 am

The Wood Brothers are back on the road come September and October. The recently announced three week run will focus heavily on shows in the Southeast and Midwest in a number of cities yet to be visited since the release of their critically acclaimed, Buddy Miller-produced album, The Muse.

A three-piece unit comprised of brothers Oliver and Chris Wood along with multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix, The Wood Brothers sound is an amalgam of vintage roots music, drawing equal inspiration from blues, folk, gospel and jazz. Their earthy Americana-based sound is adorned by the brothers’ high and lonesome harmonies, stinging slide guitar lines and floor-stomping rhythms, but at the foundation is exquisite songwriting. Oliver and Chris mine a deep well of lyrical and melodic ideas on songs like "Wastin' My Mind," "Neon Tombstone" and "Sing About It," which led Paste Magazine to declare their latest work "more dynamic than ever."
