The Wooldridge Brothers are releasing an album of covers by friends and artists from the region.

Milwaukee artists cover the Wooldridge Brothers on "Cover Up"


As of July 5, the Wooldridge Brothers' Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for not one, but two new records – the band's next studio album and Scott Wooldridge's solo album – was a success (Kickstarter: It's not just for Zach Braff and potato salad anymore!).

However, fans won't have to wait long for new Wooldridge Brothers music. Well, new-ish music. And kind of the Wooldridge Brothers. Let us explain.

The Milwaukee-based band is releasing "Cover Up," a mini-album of Wooldridge Brothers favorites covered by musically inclined friends of the group. It all began when singer-songwriter Liv Mueller posted some covers in her own style. From there, the idea grew into a nine-song record of covers from artists like Mueller, Chris Porterfield of Field Report, Mike Benign, 5 Card Studs, Chris DeMay and others.

The album will be released online through Bandcamp – where the songs are up right now – iTunes, Amazon and other music sites. A limited amount of physical copies will be available on the Wooldridge Brothers' website, as well.

To celebrate, the Wooldridge Brothers are hosting an exclusive invite-only press event at Sugar Maple next week.
