Chad Gerber (aka woodrowgerber) is an American guitarist/songwriter/producer/composer/vocalist from Los Angeles, CA who has released several studio albums under different bands, labels, and project titles since 1998. Chad has toured the US extensively since 2000, performed on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion live to 5 million + listeners, toured with the 2011 Vans Warped Tour, worked with multiplatinum selling artist Aloe Blacc, producer Aaron Marsh, Guns N' Roses alumni Teddy Andreadis, along with many other talented musicians and artists. His music receives radio airplay in the US, UK, AU, and South America.
woodrowgerber's newest release "in the beginning" will incorporate high quality short films and videos scored by woodrowgerber and or using music from the new record.
Chad first received radio airplay in the North West United States at the age of 18 for his song As An Angel off a 4 song demo he recorded in Miami Florida. The 4 song demo lead to him being heard by a hip hop duo out of Dallas Texas, who later brought him on for one of their tours as guitar player. After finishing the tour, doing a guest spot on a nationally released complication record by Tooth and Nail Records, and receiving his nickname "Woodrow", Chad began forming, writing, and performing in bands nationwide, along with scoring music for indie films and docuseries.
His band The Suicide Denial with bandmate Chad McKinsey released their debut record "I'm Sorry LA" in 2008 followed up with their 2nd release "We'll Go Down Fighting" in 2011. In the fall of 2011 Chad released a folk album under the title Chad Gerber Presents Heights Alliance, and in 2012 released a few other projects with various bands in the underground electronica scene. After a rough tour situation later that summer, Chad decided to begin working on woodrowgerber, a band he had been interested in creating since he first discovered the Gorillaz while in a skate shop on tour in Chicago. A musical blend from his background in hip hop, rock, electronica, folk, and the singer songwriter genres, woodrowgerber aims to blend multiple genres and creative mediums including film, visual art, and live theater.
