Wooden Wand is the alter ego of Brooklyn-based singer and multi-instrumentalist James Jackson Toth, who alters the band name according to whim from one project to the next. Most often working in collaboration with the free improv experimentalists the Vanishing Voice, Wooden Wand mixes folk, jazz, psychedelic, and noise rock influences into a singular blend that exemplifies the scene alternately dubbed alt-folk, freak folk, or the New Weird America. Along with a surfeit of obscure and often self-released singles and CD-Rs, higher-profile releases like Second Attention and James and the Quiet began to widen Wooden Wand's audience. ~ Charity Stafford, Rovi
