The Wood Brothers
The Wood Brothers have learned to trust their hearts. For the better part of two decades, they’ve cemented their reputation as freethinking songwriters, road warriors, and community builders, creating a catalog of diverse music and a loyal audience that has grown alongside them through the years. That evolution continues with Heart is the Hero, the band’s eighth studio album, with performances matched by the visceral storytelling and songwriting chops that have turned The Wood Brothers into Grammy®-nominated leaders of American roots music, even as their music reaches far beyond the genre’s borders.
This latest work offers a snapshot of a spirited, independent-minded group at the peak of its powers, always pushing forward and seeking to evolve beyond what’s come before.
With two critically-acclaimed albums under her belt, 2012’s ‘Til The Casket Drops and 2017’s The Storm, Ward has amassed over 355 million streams, 1 million overall sales, 36 million combined video views, and multiple radio hits. She has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music including Grammy Award®-winners Kendrick Lamar, Fantastic Negrito and Gary Clark, Jr., as well as Fitz and the Tantrums. Ward has launched multiple, sold-out headline tours, performed at high profile festivals, including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Made in America, and Firefly. Her release of “Giant,” is the latest of a series of new songs released over the past 10 months, including “Sex & Stardust,” “Break Her Heart” and “The Dark,” which carry the theme of equal parts warrior and vulnerability, all delivered with her powerhouse vocals and plenty of sass.
