Best Local Blues Act: The Wood Brothers

Staff Pick

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Oliver Wood enjoys a sizable following for his heavy blues band, King Johnson. So it’s no surprise that Ways Not to Lose, his album with younger brother Chris Wood (bassist for Medeski, Martin & Wood), turned out to be an engaging and incisive folk-blues delight. THE WOOD BROTHERS strip Oliver’s songs down to the chords, with nothing but the two strumming away on their instruments. The numbers are piercing and stark, unveiling a lifetime of hard-won victories and hard-earned lessons.
