Smaller Rooms Touring
Criticised by an art school lecturer as having 'a remarkable eye for trivia', multi-award winning Chris Wood's love of small things has made him one of England's most vivid and arresting songwriters. His writing has been said to share the same timeless quality as Richard Thompson at his best.
His fourth solo album None The Wiser was released in Spring 2013. With humble hymns and sweeping statements from Alzheimers to William Blake, Wood lovingly takes the pulse of his homeland in what could be his best album yet.
'The finest and most original singer-songwriter to have emerged from the British folk scene since Richard Thompson' The Guardian
'An intimate story teller, applying such nuance and gravitas to every phrase you are imperceptibly lured into his world... he seamlessly knits the spirit of the tradition into his very contemporary parables. And it's magnificent.' fRoots
