Will Wood is a touring musician who was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand where he started playing music at a young age. He spent his early adulthood working as a bouncer and a bartender in Auckland’s underground music venues during the weekends, and working as an assistant psychiatric nurse during the week. After playing the drums in a multitude of bands in both the hardcore punk and country scenes, Will began performing solo as a singersongwriter in 2014 and since then has released two acclaimed alt-country LPs.
Now based in Berlin, he keeps up a busy international touring schedule playing concerts across Europe, the UK, New Zealand and Australia. Will's adherence to the values of minstrels like Woody Guthrie has seen him adopt a willingness to play anywhere at any time. He’s just at home touring with large acts - playing festivals & concert venues, as he is at playing in living rooms / basements and busking on street corners all over the world. He has played support for bands like The Handsome Family, Shakey Graves, Frank Turner, JD McPherson and Mick Harvey.
