This is Atlanta with Alicia Steele

The Wood Brothers

The Wood Brothers grew up in a musical household but then went their separate ways.

Chris Wood made a name for himself as the bassist in instrumental jazz/funk trio Medeski, Martin & Wood. Older brother Oliver honed his chops playing with Tinsley Ellis before forming the band King Johnson here in Atlanta.

These two seasoned musicians only recently began performing and recording together. With the addition of percussionist and harmony vocalist Jano Rix, they’ve augmented their sound and are playing to ever-growing crowds. They stopped by the "This is Atlanta" studio while they were in town headlining a festival gig and promoting not one, but two new live albums.
