The Wood Brothers, “masters of soulful folk” (Paste), answer the booming demand for their “gripping” (New York Times) live show with their first live album, ‘The Wood Brothers Live, Vol. 1: Sky High,’ out May 8 on Southern Ground Artists. The seven-song release, accompanied by the duo’s biggest-ever year of touring with nearly 100 dates, includes live versions of songs from the duo’s first and third studio albums, including 2011’s acclaimed ‘Smoke Ring Halo’ on Southern Ground Artists.
Last week’s packed NYC crowd at the Bowery Ballroom demanded two encores from the Georgia/New York duo of Chris and Oliver Wood. Known for their “taut musicianship” (LA Times) and “impactful songwriting” (Relix), the brothers have already sold out shows this year in Chicago, Nashville, San Francisco, and Portland, among others.
A second live album will be released later this summer. See full 2012 tour dates here: www.thewoodbros.com/tour/
