Elijah Wood Hits the Decks as Wooden Wisdom w/ Zach Cowie

Friday, November 21, 2014

With Kristain Nairn (aka HODOR) in the middle of his debut DJ tour, it seems another medieval actor has taken to DJing, and it's none other than our favorite hobbit and A-list celebrity Elijah Wood. The actor has teamed up with Zach Cowie (who mixes indie-electronic beats under the psuedonym TurquoiseWisdom) and will be taking to cities around the U.S. as Wooden Wisdom. Little did we know, Wood has been DJing as a hobby for the past 15 years and is finally taking his talents public. It seems that the Wooden Wisdom duo has existed for at least a year, with their only mix "Cosmic Clearance" boasting a funky little jazz and 80s combo that I'm not quite sure if I'm a fan of. Cowie, who's been in the Hollywood music biz, has been DJing internationally since 2001, and his work as TurquoiseWisdom is a little more electronic-based than what we've heard from Wooden Wisdom with mixes that err on Nu-Disco. We're curious what kind of music to expect to hear on this tour, which only makes five stops around the country including Miami, Kansas City, Toronto, Brooklyn and Seattle. It's a bit of an electric mix of cities, and we're a little surprised there's no LA stop.
