Rock, AlternaFolk JamRock

2014 was a productive first year for JR WOLF with around 50 shows on the schedule. They played from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, including opening performances for Frankie Ballard at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster and the Harrisburg Senators at Metro Bank Park. They’ve had a studio session on ABC 27 and spins on a dozen local radio stations.

JR WOLF frontman Jason Wolfe classifies his trademark sound as ‘alternafolk jamrock’. It is a variable style that is not to be defined by listening to a single song. His self-made full length debut studio album sounds like a personal mixtape bent on seamlessly blending various genres. It is designed to be straight-forward, honest and simple, but there is something enticingly complex about this debut effort when viewed from a wholistic level.

The album’s tracks guide you through an intricately designed journey as notions of genre blur into the periphery. The arrangement starts out sounding like a rowdy electric American blues rock band and by the fourth song, cellos are the focal point. Later, there is a powerful and eerie instrumental waltz which showcases a scorching finger tapping metal style guitar performance. Other songs have distinct stylings ranging anywhere from samba reggae to traditional roots country. The overall effect is a continually welcome surprise of assorted familiarities.

Often, the sound is likened to groups of the late 60s / early 70s such as Led Zeppelin or the Grateful Dead, but with a modern style similar to Sublime or the White Stripes. JR WOLF brings this reigned eclecticism to their live shows, delighting audiences through welcome surprise. A northeast tour is planned in 2015 to support the debut release.
