Will Wood is recording his second album, following on from the success of his first, and his followers are super keen to hear his new songs. And tonight he will be playing them for us – Rotorua! We are the first to hear them here in NZ. Will has just (like ermmm 2 days ago) stepped off a plane from London and it was while he was somewhere in Czech that he wrote to me and asked if he can do his first show back in Rotorua. Always a pleasure to host Will Wood. His last performance at the Basement Cinema was absolutely fantastic, in the middle of a great line-up with Hannah Curwood and Ivy Rositter. Its his sincerity, stories and his voice that captures me – and proven I m not the only one!
Will has played on and off for many bands including Parents, Tami Neilson’s backing band and Bernie Griffen and the Grifters. In 2014 he stepped out from behind the drums and decided to go solo. His first album was recorded with Ben Edwards at The Sitting Room and has since received many great reviews. NZ Musician Magazine did this article on him in August 2014 (it includes a song): http://www.nzmusician.co.nz/index.php/ps_pagename/article/pi_articleid/3856
To the many who has bought tickets for tonight, see you soon! I am making a Mean Bean Chili, served with a tortilla and a salad. Karin’s Kombucha by the bucket to wash it down. 🙂 Tonight’s venue is also BYO (food and drink) and also TAKE YOUR OWN AWAY or the proper term LEAVE NO TRACE.
