About The Wood Brothers:
For the better part of two decades, The Wood Brothers have cemented their reputation as freethinking songwriters, road warriors, and community builders, creating a catalog of diverse music and a loyal audience who've grown alongside them through the years.
The Grammy-nominated leaders of American roots music, Chris Wood, Jano Rix, and Oliver Wood have earned acclaim from Rolling Stone and NPR, as well as an annual touring schedule of sold-out music halls and theaters on both sides of the Atlantic.
The band's eighth studio album, Heart is the Hero continues their evolution of music. Recorded analog to 16-track tape, this latest effort captures its three creators performances in real-time direct from the studio floor with nary a computer in sight. The stripped down swagger of "Pilgrim"is a reminder to slow down and experience each moment as an interactive observer, rather than a passive tourist. The gentle sway of country soul gem "Rollin' On", expounds on the timehonored tradition of love as the guiding light through darkness. "Line Those Pockets" is a universal call for mercy and understanding over materialism.
Together, these songs offer a snapshot of a spirited, independent-minded group at the peak of its powers, always pushing forward and seeking to evolve beyond what's come before.
