Berlin-born, New York based saxophonist, composer and vocalist, Charlotte Greve leads Wood River into territories new. A vehicle for her huge compositional output that goes far beyond genre classifications, Wood River lives in the cracks of all things good. Expect back beats, through composed melodies, enigmatic lyrics and grooves, bathed in swirling synths, alto saxophone, electric bass and guitars.

Accompanying Charlotte is a group of the most interesting and versatile musicians working in New York today; guitarist Keisuke Matsuno, bassist Simon Jermyn (originally from Dublin) and drummer Tommy Crane.

After their limited-edition debut in 2015, Wood River is now releasing their full-length album, More Than I Can See on Yellowbird Records in February 2020. We’ve had a listen and it is a captivating blend of jazz, ambient and rock music, with a rarely heard compositional rigour. We can’t wait to hear it live!

“…a very developed sense of melody and a moving lyrical tone.” – Süddeutsche Zeitung

“The quartet entices with compositions that are truly of our time, with a seasoned technique and a multi-faceted sound.” – Fono Forum
