Wooden Ghost is the crossing point where the pavement turns to gravel road.
The Brooklyn based musicians have finished a new full length and are issuing a challenge to the music industry, it''s critics and pedagogues, and it''s right in the title... ''True Gold Does Not Fear the Refiners Fire''. Heavy guitars and dynamic drumming set the stage for endless melodies and swift time changes that leave the listener, and live audiences swirling.
A multi-instrumentalist in the studio and on stage, Brent Cole composed and recorded his first 3 original EP''s as Ask the Dust, finding inspiration in musicians spanning several genres, including: J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr., Neil Young and Built to Spill. Continuing to record and perform with such New York City luminaries as Dufus, The Moldy Peaches and several others, Brent placed Wooden Ghost in the driver''s seat, entering the studio in the fall of 2002 to record their debut album.
Wooden Ghost features the soaring lead guitar of Scott Loving and thunderous drumming of Michael Napolitano, long time friends and collaborators. The true live (and recorded) sound was solidified with the melodic bass of Mark Ospovat, also WG''s Engineer in the studio. Lyrically reflective, rhythmically bold, Brent has a hand in the engineering of the band''s sound and brings his experience of performing in front of global audiences to the table.
Wooden Ghost has released two full-length albums and two collaborative split vinyl recordings. In addition, the band has independently organized their own tours in both the United Kingdom and throughout the North East. Critics in the United States and abroad consistently praise the sound of Wooden Ghost.
