EP 101 | The Wood Brothers


Nobody sounds like The Wood Brothers.

The Wood Brothers are blessed by dedicated fans who love their singular style that fuses gospel, blues, jazz, folk, country, and rock.

The band consists of Oliver Wood on guitar, younger brother Chris Wood on bass, and multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix, who brings percussion to the band with his guitar, drums, keyboards…

Jano Rix..plays a guitar that’s modified to also be a percussive element.

The harmonies are sublime..the songwriting solid.

I love this band and these guys.

One of the keys is Chris Wood who brings jazz chops from his years with Medeski, Martin, and Wood.

What a band…

Best of all, they’re honest. No grandstanding..just outstanding music.

The boys talk about their time with Levon Helm, Drummer& Vocalist for The Band.

The Bands influence on their music.

This interview took place backstage at The Imperial Room, Vancouver BC.
