About The Wildwoods

Website: https://www.thewildwoodsband.com/

The Wildwoods are an enchanting Folk/Americana duo based in Lincoln, Nebraska, whose flowing songwriting tandem has been praised by Paste Magazine as "focused and charmingly human". The Wildwoods' delicate melodies and descriptive lyrics come from nature, love, experiences from the road, and growing up in Nebraska.

The Wildwoods consist of husband and wife duo, Noah and Chloe Gose, who share a wide range of influences from the styles of Watchhouse, The Decemberists, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Joni Mitchell, and Gregory Alan Isakov. The duo formed in Lincoln, Nebraska in 2012 when they were each just 14 years old. After meeting in middle school, Chloe and Noah began writing and performing together and quickly gained popularity in their local music scene. Fast forward to today, and the now married couple can be found consistently performing all across the country. The group has supported touring acts such as Elephant Revival, The Hunts, The Accidentals, The Way Down Wanderers, and Jamie Wyatt. Along with performing several Sofar concerts in cities such as London, Brooklyn, and St. Louis, as well as a European tour in 2019, the pair has also performed at several festivals including: Summerfest, The Nebraska Folk and Roots Festival, Wakarusa, and the Flatwater Music Festival.  In 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2021 The Wildwoods were nominated by the Omaha Arts and Entertainment Awards as a top Americana/Folk artist in Nebraska. In 2022 they were named “Best Band” by the Lincoln Journal Star’s ‘Lincoln’s Choice Awards’.

The following is what press had to say about The Wildwoods:

“I appreciate the mixed elements of this track that make it feel both old-fashioned and brand new. The vocals steal the show on this one, certainly. The organic feeling of the way the vocals connect really makes the track stand out. Call it what you will, this is a meaningful, beautiful, and powerful track. It rolls the classics into a succinct and modern sound.”

— Greg Jones - Ear to the Ground Music

“The young songwriting tandem of Chloe and Noah Gose harmonize like something out of the Depression Era, fitted with a certain weight yet warmly and triumphantly capable of lifting hearts regardless.”

— Andrew Stellman - Hear Nebraska

“The Wildwoods know exactly what kind of music they want to make. It's not often we hear a sound this focused. Their singular brand of folk-pop riles up images of young love, innocence, unbridled joy, and the occasional heartbreak. But even the heartbreaks are lined in a comfy flannel of bright, braided colors and cast out upon the backdrop some might call "the bright side of things." Take your car out to the longest, loneliest country road you can find and put this band on. Bring a friend or go alone; either way, you'll find yourself reminiscing on the good times and finding peace with the bad ones.”

— Landon Kuhlmann - Paste Magazine & Daytrotter

The Wildwoods have released two full length albums (Sweet Nostalgia, 2017 & Across a Midwest Sky, 2019) as well as an EP (Birdie & Goose, 2017) and a handful of singles. (Like My Old Man, 2021 & Little Home, 2020).
