His father, Al Wood, was a pioneer in defining contemporary bluegrass in the 60s and 70s, while his mother introduced him to the joys of vintage rock’n’roll. He absorbed those influences and more before moving to Asheville at age 20 and launching a musical career with the the swing ragtime band The Blue Rags. The group recorded two CDs for Sub Pop Records and toured the country for five years before disbanding. Wood’s work as a solo artist is steeped in Southern soulfulness, and he counts New Orleans as a kind of second home and inspiration. His newest release, Sunshine, was recorded in Nashville with some of his former Blue Rags bandmates, and he continues to be in demand as a studio musician and creative collaborator.
