“Bill Wood and the Woodies is what really happens when the songs are the main event. When 30 years of songwriting, honed over decades of hard life experiences, meets the craftsmanship of career musicians who don’t know what it means to compromise.”

“The Woodies are an excellent band with guitarist Chris Bennet shining with some tasty solos and colouring the songs with subtle touches (in a way not too dissimilar to Mike Campbell on Tom Petty’s songs).”

“Some singers, like Nick Lowe and Graham Parker, have the knack of reformatting the punk sneer and growl into something that perfectly fits the roots-rock template of their music. Bill Wood shares this talent. Oh Look … is an honest and direct look at the complexities of life and at how easily we can all, Bill included, mess it up.”
