Brothers Chris and Oliver Wood first formed The Wood Brothers back in 2004. Since then, they have released six studio albums, including their most recent album Paradise (2015). Recorded at Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Studio in Nashville, this is Chris Woods’ debut playing electric bass on various tracks throughout the album. Joined by Jano Rix on drums and shutiar (percussive guitar), these boys have mastered the soulfolk genre all their own. Their music is a flawless translation of folk pickin’ melted into laidback soul beats accompanied by silky vocals and tight bluegrass harmonies.

As an experienced Wood Brothers showgoer, I would highly recommend taking a listen to these gentleman at The Ogden Theatre this Friday evening at 8PM. They have a way of transporting you into your most relaxing daydream, starting your weekend off right.
Don’t know where to begin listening? Some of my favorite Wood Brothers tunes include: “Wastin’ My Mind,” “Blue and Green,” and “The Muse”. Listen to them here and grab some tickets to their show while they last! BolderBeat will catch yah there.
