Lazy Locals Concert: Wood
Wood is the sound of California.
Not the bright lights and glitter California, but the Sierra Nevada, oak foothills, and lost coast California.
Somewhere in the audio landscape between the fedora and vest alt country set and the cerebral meanderings of the neo-hippy jam bands you will find a sound that is at once familiar and joyously new. Wood is an acoustic ensemble which brings together the influences of many musical styles.
Songwriters Steve Kindel, Paul Silva, And Dahlan Richenberg join Rob Strom (bass) and Barry Johnson (percussion) to create a wonderful mix of catchy melodies, thick harmonies, and profound, thoughtful lyrics. It’s good music, sometimes a little hard to define, but fits comfortably in the Roots Rock/Americana cue.
