Hi there!
We're so glad you came by.

Wood, from the Central Coast of California, builds on the fine tradition of thoughtful, catchy, acoustic music and brings it into the new century.
Drawing on many of the same influences that created the folk rock scene in the early 70's; folk, blues, bluegrass, and rock, and adding to that many years of life and performing experience, they've created a sound that is at once new and unexpected, yet grounded and familiar. we hope you love listening to the music as much as we love making it.

Oh and… Please, please, please- join the mailing list!  We promise to try our best not to send anything that isn't fun or interesting.

Paul here.

I did this track many years ago and I wish I'd had a better grip on the whole recording process because I feel that there was some fantastic playing going on but the poor recording detracts from it.

Bud McCabe, an old friend of mine, is playing bass. In fact Bud was in the band Skittelyne 10 back when I wrote this. Kelly Powers is doing the fiddle work. The name of the song is Chata, which is what Sal Ruiz always called it and the name stuck.

Bud, Kelly and Sal, you guys are awesome! Thanks…

Thanks for checking in, you guys are the best!

About that name... 

We know.

The first thing a lot of people think about when the hear the name Wood is-

an erection.

There.  I said it. It's out in the open now... er...  you know what I meant.

It's understandable, and though we have nothing against erections, (they can be quite handy) there is more to the choice of our moniker than that. So here goes-

Wood is the by-product of living plants striving to recieve as much light as they can possibly get.

We thought that a beautiful analogy to our music.
We go through our lives trying to…Read more


tWe recently did a show at Barrelhouse Brewing Co.  in Paso Robles CA, and it brought back to us why we dedicate so much time and effort to this band.
The weather was just about the best you could ask for; warm and sunny with an occasional breeze. The stage was a 1930's flatbed Ford, parked under an old oak tree. There were families and dogs and folks there ready to lay down their cares for an afternoon and just relax. Wood was having one of those shows where everything, sound system, set lists, between song…Read more
