Profile
Sugarwood was a five-piece rock / folk rock band from Durham, North East England. The group started out as an acoustic duo acquiring members as they went. With around 150 live dates a year between 1997 and 2001, they could be considered one of the hardest working bands to have come out of the North East. Winning over a massive audience and wooing the music industry at Sound City and In The City 2000. The band split up in 2001 after a (never released) album project with producer Kim Fowley and an exchange tour to Durban, South Africa. There have been rumors of a reunion.
