Album: None The Wiser. Estuary soul, he calls it, more Church of England than gospel, this feudal mix of electric guitar, upright bass and the most restrained, grainy Hammond organ imaginable. None the Wiser was born while Wood toured the UK with Joan Armatrading, and its title track plays like a counter-insurgency attack on the clichés and chestnuts that dominate our news stories: To the masters of the universe, we’re nought but fertiliser/what kind of beast is man? he sings, his words bathed in a guitar line that hurtles towards infinity.

Artist: Chris Wood Title Of Album: None The Wiser Year Of Release: 2013 Label: . Award winning English songwriter Chris Wood returns with his incredible new album 'None The Wiser'. Featuring songs first aired live (with his band) on BBC Radio 2. "This album began two years ago with a guitar - then an amp. Then I got a call from Hamish Stewart to come and sing a couple of my songs with him and some local funk soul brothers in a ten piece festival band. It has been all about the sound, what we might play was never really decided.

Chris Wood is an English songwriter and composer who plays fiddle, viola and guitar, and sings. He is an ardent enthusiast for traditional English dance music (with a background in English church music), including Morris and other rituals and ceremonies, but his repertoire also includes much French folk music and traditional Québécois material.

Chris Wood trades his former wit for bitterness in this latest release, writes Neil Spencer. A version of Jerusalem has none of Blake's Christian optimism, and John Clare's I Am is as forlorn as ever. He perks up for The Sweetness Song, defying "the old Etonian lies" with personal love, and though a new fondness for electric guitar and Hammond organ adds buoyancy to material like A Whole Life Lived, the album too often trades his former wit for bitterness.
