about Woody Wood Hollywood Red:
If the true test for a musician is in a live performance, then there are no exceptions, no second chances. Time and time again, Woody Wood and Hollywood Red set the stage and proceed to burn it down with their original material that breathes the fire of rock nÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ roll. As artistic alchemists, this trio melds their musical styling into an intricate and expansive sound. From the first note to the last, there is no mistaking that they are the real deal.
Frontman, lead vocalist, and guitarist, Woody Wood is the real deal. Roots legend, Corey Harris calls him Ã¢â‚¬Å“a masterÃ¢â‚¬Â, and Donald Harrison, New Orleans Jazz great, calls him Ã¢â‚¬Å“his musical brotherÃ¢â‚¬Â. Earlier this year, Woody won the CMT Big Break contest, which featured an American Idol-like competition in Asheville, NC, which led to several national TV spots. Not only did his musicianship propel him to this honor, but his songwriting ability did as well. Woody skills have long been appreciated, from his days touring internationally with The Blue Rags, to his time on the road with Artimus Pyle (Lynyrd Skynyrd), to his participation in the Blue Brass Project with Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Vassar Clements, Rebirth Brass Band, Bernie Worrell and Larry Keel.
Bassist Tony Black spent a good portion of his musical career in the Southern CA, where graduated from Los Angeles Music Academy. Tony started his career in the CA underground punk scene, touring nationally with Stalag 13 and Dr. Know. He then spent a large part of the 90Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s working with guitar virtuso, Buckethead, with whom he was featured in Rolling Stone. Later, Tony performed in Eyedentity, which at times featured Airto Moreira (Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Santana) and Flora Purim (Dizzy Gillespie, Stanley Clarke). Upon moving to NC, Tony joined forces with Deep South, a southern rock super-group, featuring members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Jeff Beck Band, and Black Oak Arkansas.
Drummer Chris Pyle has had percussion in his life from day one. Son of famed Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer, Artimus Pyle, Chris grew up in a musical world. Not only does he have the know how, but he has the backbone-rhythm drives the band. Percussion is not just in his blood, it is in his soul. In the mid to late 90Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s, Chris performed with the Royal Trux (Virgin Records), alongside Neil Haggerty and Jennifer Herrema. While signed with Virgin Records, Chris and the Trux garnered mainstream media exposure and toured extensively. Chris has traveled the far corners of the world, from Nepal to Jerusalem, Egypt to Ghana, ,collecting instruments and new percussion techniques.
On paper, Woody Wood and Hollywood Red possess the credentials. Each member comes from diverse and successful musical backgrounds. Each member brings their own fuel to the musical flame. But as far as the paper goes, you might as well throw that in the fire as well, because once you see them live, there is no turning back.
