The Wood Brothers’ sixth album, One Drop of Truth, dives headfirst into a deep wellspring of sounds, styles, and influences. Here the long-standing trio featuring brothers Oliver and Chris Wood along with Jano Rix treat each song as if it were its own short film. The end result is undeniably The Wood Brothers’ most dynamic recording to date.
At a point in their career where most artists would be looking to strategically position themselves for even greater commercial success, The Wood Brothers instead turned to artistic expression in service of the muse. In chaotic times when honesty is in short supply and ulterior motives seem to always be at play, they put faith in themselves and ultimately their audience by writing and recording a collection of songs that is honest and pure.
Their previous studio album, 2015’s Paradise, was dubbed “the warmest, most sublime and occasionally rowdiest Wood Brothers release yet,” by American Songwriter. The album debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and launched The Wood Brothers into the most successful year of their career, with performances everywhere from Bonnaroo to Red Rocks to Carnegie Hall.
