Step Aside (2023)
The Grammy Nominated multi-instrumentalist, Nate Wood, has created a project that is a truly ambitious take on going solo. Wood is playing everything — analog synths, drums, bass and vocals — at the same time! He’s also recording every song in one pass with no overdubs, click track or pre-recorded backing tracks. “That’s why it’s called fOUR, because it’s me with four limbs playing four instruments at once.” fOUR veers from complex, space-y prog rock to electronic-tinged instrumentals.
Currently, fOUR has released a number of viral videos on YouTube and Facebook (where some of the clips have topped one million views). fOUR’s first full length record “X.it” was released in the summer 2018, following with a performance on NPRs “Tiny Desk” in January 2019. Since then, fOUR has been touring around the globe with his one man show. fOUR's followup record will be released in spring 2023 on Snarky Puppy’s label, GroundUP Music.
