Biography

Etherwood is the most recent signing to Med School and is undoubtedly one of the most promising young talents in the scene today. Originally from Lincoln and now living in London, Woody has already captured the imagination of thousands across the globe with his achingly beautiful beats and heartfelt melodies.

Brought up on everything from The Beatles and Stevie Wonder, to Hendrix and Pink Floyd, Woody’s exposure to and folk swiftly propelled him into the world of music. He bought his first guitar when he was 12 and immediately started to write songs and play in bands and the rest, as they say, is history. To this day, Woody still plays guitar for Jakwob.

Etherwood first discovered drum + bass in the late 90s and, inspired by the likes of Aphrodite, Photek, Logistics, Roni Size, and DJ Hype, he was drawn to it by the atmosphere, tempo and energy. Still no more than a passive observer of the scene, from there, he got into bands like Mogwai, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Explosions In The Sky, The Album Leaf and Telefon Tel Aviv and cites these as some of his key influences.

Fusing the upbeat energy of drum and bass with the chilled, atmospheric moods of reverb-heavy guitar and delayed piano rolls, it’s hard to believe that Etherwood only started producing drum and bass two years ago. Already he’s received support from Radio One, Capital FM, XFM, Triple J and Rinse FM and has remixed high profile artists including Lana Del Ray, Jakwob and Jess Mills.

    I'm not a big fan of drum and bass, but this is on a whole other level. I want to hear more of this guy in the future, he is gonna be huge.

    I have just spotted that I am on 44999 tracks played... looks highly likely that Unfolding might be the track that carries me over the Brink...

    compared to all the other Hospital/Med School releases this year (and pretty sure its a lot), Etherwood's album stood out from the rest. I think from the very first song (Begin By Letting Go) until the last (Spoken) I can't help but feel mesmerized by his song. Definitely AOTY stuff here!!!

    well well well, hospital pulled through on this one, I have had the album on repeat since I bought it the other day, keep finding lovely little sections and beats in it, finally found something that I am cracking through my coursework too, best find since the old m83 stuff back in 2009. That is a pretty special thing for me to say too. Well done Etherwood. Feel free to head up to Newcastle at some point soon. I'll be there with bells on!
