Multi-instrumentalist Nate Wood has been making music for most of his life in almost every genre. Nate graduated from the California Institute of the Arts, where he studied drums, bass and guitar with Jazz luminaries Charlie Haden and Joe Labarbara.
His first solo album, Reliving is truly self-made, featuring his compositions, singing, engineering/producing, and Nate playing all the instruments. He followed with another solo album, Fall. Nate began engineering during the production of his solo albums, and this quickly turned into a busy schedule of recording and mixing for other bands, which eventually led to mastering. His mastering credits can be found here.
He is a founding member of the Grammy nominated group Kneebody, with their debut recording on Concord Records, The Line, to be released in September 2013. Nate engineered all previous studio albums by Kneebody, including Kneebody, Low Electrical Worker, and You Can Have Your Moment.
Nate is a member of Weyou, a duo project with Jesske Hume. Weyou released their first full-length album, titled een (2013). Weyou incoporates their multi-instrumental abilities into indie, folk, and avant-garde songwriting, creating a sound that is often ambient and at times wildly experimental.
Nate toured the world many times over with pop/rock band The Calling and he has performed and/or recorded with artists including George Harrison, Wayne Krantz, Tigran, Donny McCaslin, John Tesh, Chaka Khan, and Sting.
Nate Wood uses Gretsch drums, Istanbul cymbals, Gibraltar hardware, Remo drumheads and Vic Firth sticks.
