Will Wood - Broken Man - 2014


His songwriting is noted for its country/folk aspect that draws from a wide timeline of influences who exuded the same forthright attitudes and story-telling songs, ranging from the original folk troubadour/activist Woody Guthrie through to early Johnny Cash and onwards through Townes Van Zandt and Gram Parsons and more recent influences like Billy Bragg and Justin Townes Earle. Will's adherence to the values of minstrels like Woody Guthrie has seen him adopt a willingness to play anywhere at any time, in addition to touring with large acts and playing festivals and concert venues he is just as at home playing in living rooms and basements and busking on street corners all over the world, there is even video footage of a midnight performance in the middle of a carriage on the London Tube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ekbFtVoGps). He has played support for acts like Shakey Graves (USA), Frank Turner (UK), The Handsome Family (USA) and Mick Harvey (producer/member of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds). Sbids
