Smaller Rooms Presents Chris Wood Criticised by an art school lecturer as having a remarkable eye for trivia Chris Woods love of small things has made him one of Englands most vivid and arresting song writers. With gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables. Hollow Point is his chilling ballad of the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezez and Wood's feel for the sheer "one thing after another-ness" of life allows us, for the first time, to see the event through the eyes of the victim.Joan Armatrading presented Chris with the 2011 BBC Radio Two Folk Singer Of The Year award before inviting him as special guest onto her Autumn 2012 tour. They played 51 cities and Wood found himself eavesdropping on conversations from pound shops to tea rooms, army recruiting centres to hotel saunas collecting the poetry of recession. His response is, None The Wiser, a fourth solo album released in Summer 2013. With humble hymns and sweeping statements from Alzheimers to William Blake, Wood lovingly takes the pulse of his homeland in what could be his best album yet.Wood has worked and collaborated with a long list of artists, most recently Dizraeli, Billy Bragg, Eliza and Martin Carthy in Simon Emerson's Imagined Village. His duet with Eliza added to the "Villager's" winning another Folk Award for "Best Traditional Song". The Irish Times dubbed him the renaissance man of English folk because his work extends beyond song writing into commissions for Radio 3 Between The Ears, Late Junction and The Essay. He has written for The Times and lectured at Newcastle and Limerick Universities. His setting of Blake's Jerusalem features in Paul Gilroy's lecture on poetry and music at Kings College London and Wood's lyric Walk This World With Music is included in Michael Morpurgo's latest collection. Chris will continue to tour None the Wiser solo during 2015 bringing his spellbinding performances to new audiences in UK and Europe as well as playing some high profile festival concerts.
