Oliver Always Smilin' 28/3/21

A mainstay of modern-day American Roots music with his band The Wood Brothers, Oliver Wood has announced his debut solo album, Always Smilin', will be released on Friday 21st May on Honey Jar/Thirty Tigers, and its first single, 'Fine Line', is today's Video Of The Day. Wood has spent the better part of the 21st century blurring the boundaries between Folk, Gospel, Country-Soul and Americana, earning an international audience and a Grammy Award-nomination along the way. Now stepping out on his own, he refocuses his sharp songwriting, savvy guitar chops, and one-of-a-kind voice on an 11-song collection that evokes the swagger of a Saturday evening picking party one moment and the solemnity of a Sunday morning gospel service the next.
