After calling it quits with the soulful acoustic guitar-fronted band that bore his name, Brooks Wood, in romantic singer/ songwriter fashion, relocated to New York City with hopes of making it big. So far, he has no regrets: "[It] felt like the right progression for me," Wood says, 18 months after the move. "I've fallen into a good community of singer/ songwriters here, and I feel like the music I'm writing now is a product of the new energy and vibes only this city can bring."
Though he's writing tunes for his solo album, Wood felt there was unfinished business back home with the band he led up and down the East Coast college rock circuit for four years. "Our CD we were recording leading up to our last show was never completed, and we always had a problem with that," he explains. While there haven't been talks of a full-fledged run, the original lineup of the Brooks Wood Band—Wood plus guitarist Paul Sheeran, bassist Miah Wander, drummer Danny Shampine and keyboardist Greg Holzer—now reunites to release Good Timing.
"We owe it to the people who supported us for so many years—our friends, family, fellow bands and musicians. We owe it to The Pour House, which has always been great to us," Woods explains. But let's not forget that unfinished business, either. "We owe it to ourselves." Fullproof, which features Shampine on drums, opens. —Spencer Griffith
