To date, having traversed several line-up changes, the band has consisted of founding members singer Jeff Tweedy and bassist John Stirratt, as well as guitarist Nels Cline, multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone, keyboard player Mikael Jorgensen, and drummer Glenn Kotche, since 2004. Throughout its 25 year career, Wilco has released 11 studio albums, including the two-time Grammy Award-winning album A Ghost is Born (2004). Their most recent album, Ode to Joy, was released in October 2019, and reached number one on the Billboard Folk Albums and Independent Albums charts, as well as number two on the Top Rock Albums Chart and number 21 on the Billboard 200.
