My name is Richard Alan Wood and I write California Country songs. When you first hear those words some people might think they don't go together. A lot of folks think that Country means Nashville, Memphis, Dallas, Austin, Baton Rouge or a lot of other places in the South.
It does!
But Country also means places like Bakersfield, Los Angeles, Fresno, Richmond, and even San Francisco because Country is anywhere people feel pain, loss, guilt, happiness, weakness, strength, or love. No matter where we are, Country just expresses itself through music that talks about all those things, and a lot more, in the language of common folks. I was Oklahoma born, but California bred and the songs I write show a little slice of life in California Country. I hope you enjoy them!

Going to Nashville for a week in late September for an NSAI class, Song Camp 102. Song Camp 101 was a blast and I'm really looking forward to the next session. As a new songwriter, I am amazed at how difficult it is to take an idea and condense it, and put it into words that are marketable. It may look easy, folks, but it's not. NSAI has a terrific staff of highly successful songwriters and they are great with their suggestions on songwriting. See some of you there. Rich Wood
