Braiden Wood is an accomplished singer-songwriter that has mastered the art of zippy melodies and uplifting lyrics. From his smile to his music, Wood is 360 degrees of good vibes. Wood firstpicked up a guitar at age 13 and quickly founded the pop/rock boy band, Before You Exit, serving as their lead guitarist. The band’s success led to extensive touring with acts such as All Time Low, Allstar Weekend, and Olly Murs playing in prestigious venues like the House of Blues, the Fillmore, the Stone Pony, and Irving Plaza. With a desire to branch out from the ‘boy band’ stigma and to explore a more mature sound, Wood amicably parted from the band in 2013 to become a solo artist. He re-emerged in 2014 with a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign and subsequent release of his debut EP, Be Free, Be Strong, featuring a collection of songs written while on the road with his previous band. Freeze Time, the lead single, exhibits Wood’s trademark sound of dreamy keyboard synth and jangly guitar rhythm. In 2015, Wood released an edgier follow-up EP, Noiz.
