Grammy nominated American roots trio The Wood Brothers will return to Montana for two shows in 2022. They’ll perform at The ELM in Bozeman on Friday, March 4th then at The Wilma in Missoula on Saturday, March 5th.
The band’s namesake comes from brothers, Chris & Oliver Wood, who released their first album, Ways Not To Lose, in 2006. They recruited multi instrumentalist, Jano Rix, to round out the trio around 2011. Together, they’ve created a uniquely soulful sound that American Songwriter calls “instantly identifiable.” They’ve toured across the world, played at prominent festivals across the country, and have released chart topping albums like The Muse, Paradise and One Drop Of Truth. Their 2018 album, One Drop Of Truth, hit #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and garnered the band their first GRAMMY nomination for Best Americana Album.
The Wood Brothers’ raw and energetic live performances continue to grow their fanbase. Folks who saw them play (and dance) at KettleHouse Amphitheater in 2017 & 2018 can confirm this. See for yourself and grab tickets ASAP because we have a feeling tickets are going to move quickly!

About The Wood Brothers
The Wood Brothers didn’t know they were making a record. Looking back, they’re grateful for that. “If we had known, we probably would have been too self-conscious to play what we played,” reflects bassist/vocalist Chris Wood. “At the time, we just thought we were jamming to break in our new studio, so we felt free to explore all these different ways of performing together without worrying about form or structure. It was liberating.” Recorded live to tape, those freewheeling, improvised sessions became a vast pool of source material from which The Wood Brothers would go on to draw ‘Kingdom In My Mind,’ their seventh studio release and most spontaneous and experimental collection yet. While on past records, the band—Chris, guitarist/vocalist Oliver Wood, and drummer/keyboardist Jano Rix—would write a large batch of songs and then record them all at once, ‘Kingdom’ found them retroactively carving tunes out of sprawling instrumental jam sessions like sculptors chipping away at blocks of marble. A testament to the limitless creativity of the unharnessed mind, the record explores the power of our external surroundings to shape our internal worlds (and vice versa), reckoning with time, mortality, and human nature. The songs here find strength in accepting what lies beyond our control, thoughtfully honing in on the bittersweet beauty that underlies doubt and pain and sadness with vivid character studies and unflinching self-examination. Deep as the lyrics dig, the arrangements always manage to remain buoyant and light, though, drawing from across a broad sonic spectrum to create a transportive, effervescent blend that reflects the trio’s unique place in the modern musical landscape.
