While fans are immediately struck by the relevance of the evocative lyrics, they are ultimately won over by Michael Wood Band’s attention to all the elements that make for great, classic sounding rock music. The live show is pure energy, with smoking guitar leads, melodic rhythms, and a seriously infectious groove. Catchy guitar driven originals blend with classic and contemporary rock favorites for a seamless show. From Canada’s west coast, the four-piece features Michael Wood (vocals/guitar), Josh Weed (guitar/vocals), Jon Burgundy (bass/vocals), and Alex Campbell (drums/vocals). The band’s sound reflects multiple influences ranging from jazz to pop to classic rock, and diverse topics, such as the Arab Spring (Should We Be Afraid), over commercialism (End of the World) and finding your own path (I Think I'll Just Go to Bed).
"Shockingly fresh, well written songs with great delivery. Infectious grooves that bring to mind The Police, Kings Of Leon and Red Hot Chilli Peppers with undertones of Hendrix, the Ramones and Tom Petty. I had to listen to the music from start to finish...then press repeat." Aaron Bethune, Play It Loud Music
Occupy This is an astoundingly good album. The fab four, comprised of Weed and Wood on vocals and guitars, Jon Baergen on bass and vocals and Alex Campbell on drums and vocals, have produced a modern-sounding rock album with catchy lyrics and hooks. Rikki MacCuish, Spin News Magazine
I don't know where I was "at the end of the world" but I hope they were playing this song there! This is one of those songs that will get you pumped as you sit behind the wheel of your car. Superb! SoundOut
