From early in their childhood in Boulder, CO, Chris and Oliver were steeped in American roots music. Oliver played guitar in cover bands before earning a spot in Tinsley Ellis’s touring act. At Ellis’s behest, Oliver began to sing and then founded King Johnson, a hard-touring group that would release six albums of blues-inflected R&B, funk and country. Chris, meanwhile, studied jazz bass at the New England Conservatory of Music, moved to New York City and formed Medeski Martin & Wood in the early ‘90s, which over the next two decades would become a cornerstone of contemporary jazz and abstract music. After pursuing separate musical careers for some 15 years, the brothers performed together at a show in North Carolina. Oliver sat in with MM&W following King Johnson’s opening set. Soon after, the pair recorded a batch of Oliver’s songs, channeling the shared musical heroes of their youth while seizing on their own individual strengths – Oliver’s classic songwriting, Chris’s forward-thinking musicianship. The Wood Brothers’ latest album, ‘Paradise’, was release in October 2015.
