For almost 20 years, Oliver and Chris Wood nurtured separate musical careers: Oliver with his band King Johnson and as a Tinsley Ellis sideman, Chris with experimental jazz group Medeski Martin and Wood. However, after taking the stage together at a MMW show in North Carolina, the siblings immediately knew they needed to start their own project. Mixing elements of blues, soul, folk, and rock, the Wood Brothers have now earned their own legion of fans.

Check out the brothers, along with percussionist Jano Rix, perform three tunes and discuss a range of topics, including their earliest musical memories and the momentous N.C. show that ignited their collaboration.
