The Wood Floors

Singer/Songwriter/Producer, Chris Howe and Drummer, Eric Scheiner had played off and on together in various bands and formed The Wood Floors ostensibly as a side project.

A side project that would end up growing into a voluminous library of recordings and live shows.

The first two Floors' releases featured short post-punk songs in the tradition of The Replacements early material, by the time the band recorded their third release "Violence" the focus went to creating material on the spot -no rehearsals - just gut instinct and chords.

The following release "Knowing Girls" was recorded in the same manner.

In 2004 and 2005 the band released the more crafted "For Rodriguez", "Girls Inc." and "Divorce Sale" all of which continued the band's knack for song and melody.

Between 2006 and 2008 the band solidified itself with the strong releases "These Streets Won't Lead You Home", "Real Love","Dry White Heat", "The Damage Is Already Done", and arguably their career best "Catwalks In The Coliseum".

Never afraid to stray into bizarre territory, they also released off-the cuff-rockers like "Real Pig" and "Every Act Of Pleasure" during the same time span.

2010 to 2014 saw the band release the synth heavy "Moon Dolls", the eclectic "Some Girls", "Music From Not The Devil" and the somber "At the Edge of Now."

One Wood Floors release rarely gives an idea what the next album will sound like. Usurping expectations and continually surprising listeners.
