About this Episode

Right before the whole world as we know it shut down, Z got to talk to Oliver and Chris Wood of the Americana pioneers The Wood Brothers about their renewed musical bond, how they grew up in Colorado jamming with their biology professor dad, and how they just barely missed being bashed by the great East Nashville tornado a month and a half back. When it rains it does pour, it seems.

The conversation happened before one of their last shows on their Covid-19 shortened west coast run. The Wood Brothers’ brand new record “Kingdom in My Mind” is a sweetly funky, ballsy, bluesy and booty-shakingly romantic improvisational masterwork - do yourself a favor and turn it up loud and proud - it will help you groove through the lock-down. If there is anything that’s clear in this deeply strange and unsettling time, it’s that we need music now more than ever.
