The Wood Brothers are touring in support of their new studio album, Paradise (Honey Jar Records/Thirty Tigers), which recently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart. The 35-date run brings them to The Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO on Saturday, December 12 for a co-headline performance with The Infamous Stringdusters. The Wood Brothers and Stringdusters will be supported by Colorado’s own Trout Steak Revival.

Dubbed “masters of soulful folk” by Paste, The Wood Brothers released their debut studio album, Ways Not To Lose, on Blue Note in 2006. You’d be forgiven at the time for expecting it to be something of a side project. Bassist Chris Wood already had legions of devoted fans for his incomparable work as one-third of Medeski Martin & Wood, while his brother Oliver Wood toured with Tinsley Ellis before releasing a half-dozen albums with his band King Johnson. Almost a decade later and with drummer Jano Rix added as a permanent third member, it’s become quite clear that The Wood Brothers is indeed the main act.

Paradise follows the band’s acclaimed 2013 release The Muse, which was recorded almost entirely live in Zac Brown’s Southern Ground studio. Hailed previously by the New York Times for their “gripping” vocals and by the LA Times for their “taught musicianship,” the live setting proved to be a remarkable showcase for the brothers’ live chemistry and charismatic magnetism. Taking a different approach to their sixth studio album, the decision to record in Nashville was no coincidence, as Paradise marks the first album written with the entire band living in Music City.The collection explores themes of longing and desire and the ways in which the pursuit of fulfillment can keep it perpetually out of our reach. It’s a sophisticated piece of work, but also their most rocking effort to date, with Chris Wood playing electric bass on tracks for the first time and Oliver offering an abundance of stinging electric and slide guitar leads. Recorded at Dan Auerbach‘s Easy Eye studio in Nashville, Paradise presents the latest chapter in the ongoing evolution of a band—and a family—navigating the joy and challenges of a life in music.

Who Is Nate Todd

Nate Todd was born on the central plains of Nebraska, but grew up on the high plains of the Texas panhandle. With not much to do in either place, music was his constant companion. His parents dubbed the first two albums he ever owned onto a tape for him. Side A was Bert and Ernie’s Sing Along. Side B was Sgt. Peppers. His lifelong love affair with music started early as he practically grew up in a Rock & Roll band, with his father and uncle often taking him out on the road or into the studio with them. Nate began performing live at sixteen and hasn’t looked back, having played in numerous bands from L.A. to Austin. At the age of twenty he was bitten by the writing bug, and upon moving to Denver decided to pursue a degree from Metropolitan State University where he recently graduated with a B.A. in English and a minor in Cinema Studies.
