         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.”  - 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.
