Jenny Wood performs at Wichita's Orpheum Theatre Friday, Dec. 20, alongside Katy Guillen and The Drive.

Wood's ongoing anti-bullying campaign, which saw her record the song "Don't Let Them Get In Your Head," remains central to her performance mission. She will also perform several familiar songs and some holiday music as well.

Guillen and bandmate Stephanie Williams will join Wood part of her set in addition to performing on their own.

Wood recently stopped by the KMUW studios to discuss her friendship with Guillen and her first-ever headlining show at the Orpheum.

Truth Has Legs is the brand-new recording from Wichita singer-songwriter Jenny Wood. The collection of songs was inspired by a variety of personal struggles and observations about the world surrounding her over the last few years. Joining Wood on this recording are drummer Will Erickson (Spirit of the Stairs, Team Tremolo), Caleb Drummond (Haymakers) and Thayne Coleman (The Travel Guide).

Wood celebrates the release of her new record, Friday, Sept. 7, at the Crown Uptown.

Will Erickson has played drums in bands such as The Travel Guide, Spirit of the Stairs and Bridegeist, but a few years ago he wanted to see if he could return to another musical love, guitar, and write songs for a project that, at least at first, existed only at his home. That project would eventually become the band Team Tremolo.

Wichita singer-songwriter Jenny Wood’s new CD, Don’t Let Them Get In Your Head, is out this weekend. The vocalist says it’s a strong reflection of who she is as a writer and performer.

Jenny Wood’s known for her high-energy live performances and uncompromising vocals. So, one might be forgiven for thinking that she’d soften her stage approach to accommodate her studio environment. She says producer Scott Spriggs and his father, Wayne, were eager to capture that energy in both audio and visual worlds when made her new album, Don’t Let Them Get in Your Head.
