Will Wood - Magpie Brain & Other Stories - 2016

Here is the second solo album from Will Wood. It’s a gem – containing a range of emotions, meditations, diary entries and a couple  of knees-up country-folk bangers too. A wide range of song crafting on display here, and whether Wood’s deftly finger-picked guitar and calm voice are to the fore, or it’s the sympathetic harmony and backing vocals of Reb Fountain,  Dave Khan’s multi-instrumental mastery and production and mastering skills of Ben Edwards and  Ben Delaney the songs are always the stars. All of the players know this and are fitting in around a set of tunes that more than once bring to mind the gentler, contemplative moments that Paul Kelly so effortlessly conjures. OffTT
