BIG WOOD band members Gary Cornick, Steve Short and Joe Cloutier were fixtures on the Northern California club scene playing together in bands like Almaden Express and Starrider for big crowds every night. It was the live stage where they developed a reputation for bringing their unique brand of melodic rock music directly to the audience in a big way.
After several years touring together, the band members decided to head in different directions.
Their second shot at success started in 2004 during an impromptu reunion gig at Joe’s birthday party in San Francisco. “It was a great gig and everyone went crazy,” Joe recalls. “It was as if we had never stopped playing together.” The guys met again the following week and BIG WOOD was officially a band!
Over the next several years, the band spent a lot of time in the studio writing and recording new music for the debut release. They also played a number of live shows getting rave reviews as the headliner or opening act for major bands coming through the area.
