A UK based instrumental phenomenon - guitarist Chris Woods blends ear bending dropped tuned grooves with endearing stories to create his performances. 

There is an eerie feel to his music; a dark jazz texture driven by explosive guitar percussion…

He began his career in the guitar world; endorsed by the most acclaimed brands he honed his skills performing at prestigious guitar festivals across the globe. Approached by Hal Leonard to write a comprehensive guide on the percussive style, which quickly became the standard ‘how to play’ percussive guitar publication, Chris’ reputation became international and highly regarded.

With a loyal following behind him Chris set about writing the debut album. Determined to create an emotional work, that showed percussive guitar playing as a serious creative storytelling tool, Chris toured his new compositions relentlessly. Travelling to the US, Europe and what seemed like every corner of Britain and Ireland, refining the pieces to reach out to audiences as effectively as possible. After two years of touring, Chris went into the studio and recorded something very special indeed, the product of two years hard work; ‘Stories for Solo Guitar’…

Over the next 12 months the Chris Woods Groove will be appearing across Europe in Art centres, Acoustic Clubs, Theatres, Guitar Festivals and Arts Festivals promoting the sounds and stories from ‘Stories for Solo Guitar’…
