Jody Carroll & WOODBRAIN
The most bad ass band in the land!
SWIMMING IN TURPENTINE Dead or Live
“One of the best electric blues bands on the scene...Certainly this band has enough dynamite in its sound to blow up a small bridge.” - jazz.com 2009
"A very new and very exciting vision of the blues — a fusion of the Delta and their own haunted visions. In a way, when performing... live they're like a classic jam band that can take a song and its theme for great lengths... but whatever they are, they're extremely innovative with a sound completely their own. Exhilarating and mind-enchanting."
— Cascade Blues Association | 2009
With a guitar/harmonica/bass/drums line-up, WOODBRAIN might be mistaken for a typical blues collective — at least until this fiery Portland, Oregon foursome begins to play, when it quickly becomes apparent they are potentially an evolutionary force in the genre.
Or several genres at once.
WOODBRAIN'S energy is incendiary; their music deeply rooted in tradition.
And yet their songwriting and improvisation pull those roots in all kinds of directions informed by the generations of Son House, Jimi Hendrix, and John Coltrane.
Without sacrificing an iota of heart or soul, their sound effortlessly skirts boundaries
to reach blues, rock, Americana, and jam scene listeners alike.

Announcing | New solo studio album
World of Man
15 brand new original recordings! and 6 extra bonus tracks.
Featured in No Depressions Best of Everything 2020 in review
The whispers of old Amerikay hop a train and plow through the deepest caves, back alleys, deserts, and valleys like a piece of fire-filled, molasses dipped coal rock shot from a 21-pound cannon barrel. The World of Man is a deep reflection of old acoustic traditions, tales, trials & the road paved day by day through this rough and rowdy ride.
Back to the Country | 2018
These sixteen genre-bending tracks, are a testament to tradition, authenticity and the power of one man and one instrument.
"new blues artist we now can't live without....Jody Carroll, whose textured blues and other roots were dark and haunting.."
No Depression Year End Review, Amos Perrine
old blood | 2015
"Old Blood is more than just a great album, it is an acoustic masterpiece.."
Rain of Days | 2006
Spellbinding original acoustic Blues/Americana with an impressive modern twist of fate. Bottleneck slide blues-based finger-style guitar playing and songwriting at its best; solo and with a powerful/highly dynamic band.
" His finger-picking and slide skills amaze and challenge listeners while his moving vocals draw them into the world of a true storyteller.."
