Wooldridge Brothers Bio


After showcasing at SXSW in the late 90’s the Wooldridge Brothers (Scott and Brian Wooldridge) inked a publishing deal with Windswept Pacific/EMI and released three critically acclaimed albums. They had several songs placed in films (Contact, Some Mother’s Son) and television shows (Party of Five, Nearly Famous, Anna Nicole Smith and many others) along with successful regional radio airplay.  After touring for years, Scott and Brian took time off while Scott moved to Minneapolis and Brian, staying in Milwaukee, worked with other artist.  In 2009 the Brothers sought out producer Chris Stamey (dB’s/Alex Chilton) and went back into the studio. The result was the Americana pop album Days Went Around.  In support of Days Went Around, Scott and Brian played select shows with Alejandro Escovedo, Martha Wainwright and Walter Salas-Humara (the Silos). Scott headed back to Minneapolis to start work on his first solo album, and Brian toured and released three albums with The Mike Benign Compulsion.  In 2014 the Wooldridge Brothers created a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund Scott’s new solo album and a new Wooldridge Brothers single and album.  Scott's solo album was released in Jan. 2015, and the Wooldridge Brothers vinyl single came out Aug. 2015. The first round of tracks for the WB album were produced by John Munson (Trip Shakespeare, Semisonic) in Minneapolis, MN, the rest of the album was finished in Rockford, IL with Scott Gorsuch (EIEIO) at the helm. Also in 2015 the brothers were invited to play the Big Star Third concert at First Ave. in Minneapolis, MN. They shared the stage with members of REM, Big Star, The Poises and many more (see show info).

In 2016 the Wooldridge Brothers open for Ben Folds at Milwaukee’s Summerfest. They also toured with The Baseball Project and continued work on their album.

The album, Starts At Dusk, is out now!
