T. Wold grew up the youngest of six kids in Decorah, Iowa, the son of a Lutheran pastor who together with his wife thought it would be a good idea to take the kids on the road as a family singing outfit. As The Christenson Family Singers, they would end up releasing one full length album and two 45's and toured Europe and Scandinavia in a van three times singing Nordic folk songs and hits from musicals like "The Sound of Music" and "Fiddler on the Roof". After cutting his teeth in the coffee shop scene of Minneapolis in the early 90's, he moved to Australia and recorded “The Folkadelic Two Step” (2006) all on his own when he was living near the beach, drawing comparisons to Nick Drake while 2010’s “Buried Transmissions” was recorded at The Terrarium in Minneapolis with a full band and the feel of a folkier Tom Petty. In 2015, he released “Wanderdust” which was recorded and produced by Jonathan Burnside (The Sleepy Jackson, Melvins) in and around San Francisco and with plenty of pedal steel, organ and slide guitar, it is an Americana road trip from Wilco to Eels but with the distinct T. Wold songwriting and delivery. In March of 2020, he was stranded in a loft studio on an island on the Mississippi River in Minneapolis near the iconic Grain Belt Sign when the virus hit town. Then a friend loaned him a Tascam 008, a backpacker guitar and a cajon box drum and what came out was the lofi EP "3 Songs...and a Whole Lotta Trouble". It was a response to being far from his home in northern California in a world unraveling.
