Andy Wood

Andy Wood 2 (4)-2

ANDY WOOD is recognized as part of the forefront of this generation’s top influential guitarists.

Currently touring as the guitarist and mandolinist for country super group, RASCAL FLATTS, Andy is also performing live with his own band promoting CAUGHT BETWEEN THE TRUTH AND A LIE, the new double album which showcases Andy’s vast musical influences and abilities.

Looking for an outlet for styles other than hard rock, Andy also released his debut solo album A DISCONCERTING AMALGAM. This instrumental record covers a broad range of genres including fusion, rock, metal, and acoustic bluegrass. Andy Wood is known for blurring the lines of preconceived genres. Andy has toured as a guitarist for various acts, including Rascal Flatts (current) Sebastian Bach, Disciple, and Scott Stapp.

Andy spent most of his childhood playing and competing in bluegrass festivals. Touring the bluegrass circuit with his cousin and grandfather provided Andy with the necessary exposure that helped refine and sharpen his skills. Andy and his cousin held various state championship titles. At the young age of sixteen Andy finished second in the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MANDOLIN CONTEST in Winfield, Kansas. All of this was accomplished before Andy discovered the world of electric guitar at the age of eighteen.

Fast-forward a few years. Andy’s curiosity and appreciation for music drew him into the world of electric guitars. The new instrument was familiar due to his experience with acoustic instruments, but at the same time, allowed him to manipulate his sound in ways never before possible. He began studying the styles of Nashville session players such as Brent Mason and Albert Lee.

It was not long after Andy had immersed himself in new styles such as jazz, swing, fusion, and rock. Andy began to study other guitar greats such as The Dixie Dregs, Eric Johnson, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, and Steve Vai. The young guitarist began incorporating their influences into his own style.

At the age of 22, Andy was drawn back to competition in the form of GUITARMAGGEDON, a guitar contest sponsored by Guitar Center. Andy was a face in the crowd of 3,400 other contestants, but he made his presence known by being crowned champion of this prestigious tournament.

Not long after winning Guitarmaggedon, Andy became a founding member of the rock group DOWN FROM UP. They have toured with Seven Dust, Drowning Pool and 10 Years.

As Andy climbs to greater and greater heights, his technical proficiency and tasteful chops makes Mr. Wood a force to be reckoned with, and a name you will not forget. If you find yourself “Caught Between The Truth and a Lie,” you’ll need all the “Charisma” you can get your hands on!

American Dog and Fin – Dogatized

Like so many Rock-n-Roll tales, we are also tied to the original Rock-n-Roll animal Pete Way.  By the time Pete moved to Columbus Ohio the Dog boys had been tearing it up the Midwest for a while. But there was no way fate could keep these Rock-n-Roll Fugitives from ending up together.  The Dog ended […]

Snowblynd – Dirty Water

Currently, singles from Dirty Water are appearing regularly on AllSouthernRock.com, an internet radio site, and the five-piece outfit is playing across the state throughout October. Now this is Southern rock, with twang and grit and a bit of a drawl, and all those things are dangerous nowadays. Why? Because people who fear country music can […]
