The Aaron Woods Band was formed when frontman/lead singer Aaron Woods moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma in early 2010 from his home state of Kansas. "Once I decided that music was what I wanted in life, I decided to relocate to a more conducive area." Stillwater, Oklahoma has been dubbed several nicknames including, "North Austin" and "West Nashville" due it's popular thriving music scene. It's also known as the epicenter for the growing "Red-Dirt" music genre which is believed to be pioneered by local legends such as, Bob Childress, J.J.

AWB consists of five guys that came together all for the love of music. Aaron Woods-Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar; Tylar Callaham-Lead Guitar/3rd Vocals; Brodee Nucci-Bass Guitar; Chris Gibby-Keys/2nd Vocals; & Tyler Jimenez-Drums.
