Wood’s most recent album, a mixture of new originals and classic soul/blues/r&b songs entitled “Tomorrow Night”, was released in November 2018.  “Privacy Policy”, an organ trio album with guitarist Chris Allard and drummer Ralph Salmins, will be released later this year.

“Remember the first time you heard Dylan, or Springsteen, or Costello, or Waits?  Charlie Wood delivers that same jolt.” ~ JAZZ TIMES

“Charlie Wood embodies hepcat worldliness and barroom empathy; he’s got style but also the wisdom that gives it heftiness.” ~ JAZZ REVIEW

Born and raised in Memphis, TN, Charlie headed down the Mississippi to New Orleans at seventeen, spending a few formative years soaking up the music and culture of the Big Easy and playing keys with local favourites like Charmaine Neville.  He returned to Memphis in his early twenties to join the band of legendary blues guitarist Albert King, with whom he toured the US and Europe.

Having established a musical reputation for himself, Charlie took up a long-standing residency with his Hammond organ trio at King's Palace on Beale Street.  The gig became known to touring musicians and locals alike, attracting impromptu sit-ins from B.B. King, Georgie Fame, Joey DeFrancesco, George Coleman, Mulgrew Miller, Alvin Batiste, and many others.

In October 2014, Wood became the 136th recipient of a Brass Note on Beale Street, the Memphis equivalent of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Other recipients include such musical luminaries as Elvis Presley, Al Green, and Isaac Hayes.

Wood is an accomplished and prolific singer/songwriter with numerous original releases under his belt, including "Southbound" and "Who I Am" on Ben Sidran's GoJazz label and "Flutter and Wow" on Memphis-based Archer Records.  His original song “Promised Land” won the 2016 U.S.A Songwriting Competition, Jazz category.
