Oliver Wood Project and JP Ruggieri

#9 Oliver Wood
WOOD WORKER: Oliver Wood gives his full-time band the night off Sept. 7.
Thursday September 7, 2023 08:00 PM EDT
Cost: $25-$30
CRITIC’S PICK: Either with his Wood Brothers band or his own “project,” as he is tonight, Oliver is a compelling, soulful voice and uniquely gifted songwriter, well known to the city’s old timers from his days fronting the eclectic King Johnson. He will likely stick to tracks from his Tom Waits-inspired 2022 solo album Always Smilin’, maybe throw in some Wood Brothers’ gems, and a few covers too. He contributes vocals to folk/rock opener Ruggieri’s fine new album which ensures the two will share the stage for a while. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Oliver Wood is a mainstay of modern-day American roots music. The front man of The Wood Brothers since 2004, he’s spent the 21st century blurring the boundaries between folk, gospel, country-soul, and Americana, earning an international audience and a Grammy Award nomination along the way. Now, with his debut solo album, Always Smilin’, Oliver reimagines that tradition by presenting his sharp songwriting, savvy guitar chops, and one-of-a-kind voice in a new light. It results in an 11-song collection that evokes the swagger of a Saturday evening picking party one moment and the solemnity of a Sunday morning gospel service the next.
