Comes A Time: The Wood Bros.

On this episode of Comes A Time, Mike and Oteil talk with Oliver and Chris Wood of The Wood Brothers! You’ll hear about their familial musical roots and the unique artistic connection that they share as brothers, the importance of the collective healing process that our society must go through after COVID-19, and Oteil and Oliver talk about why they each think that their most recent tours were some of the best they’ve ever had. They also discuss Oliver’s recent solo record, the implications of canceling a tour for those who are not musicians, and Mike shares important insights on why “gratitude trumps the critic.” Oliver and Chris are both incredibly experienced musicians, and in this episode they distill some of the wisdom that they’ve learned throughout their careers for you!
Dubbed “masters of soulful folk” by Paste, The Wood Brothers formed after brothers Chris and Oliver Wood pursued separate musical careers for 15 years. Chris already had legions of devoted fans for his incomparable work as one-third of Medeski Martin & Wood, while Oliver toured with Tinsley Ellis before releasing a half-dozen albums with his band King Johnson. They have released 8 studio records and 4 live albums, and their eclectic, electrifying sound has captivated audiences around the globe. The band has been acclaimed by fans and critics alike and while the quality of their music speaks for itself, they earned official recognition for their work when they were nominated for Best Americana Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
