AMF ARTIST OF THE MONTH

The Ghost Wolves

Carley Wolf grew up with a pack of wolf-hybrid dogs on a Texas Hill Country ranch. When she met Jonny Wolf in 2011 and they started making music together, they named their band The Ghost Wolves as a way of remembering the beloved animals from her family who had passed on to the next life.

Blending blues, rock n’ roll, punk and early American music with modern forms, the duo has earned a reputation as one of the hardest working bands and more innovative artists in the current rock n’ roll underground, touring internationally for almost 6 years straight, with nearly 1000 shows between them in 23+ countries including most of western Europe, The USA, the U.K. and Japan.

The Ghost Wolves recently recorded for the first time in two years with John Michael Schoepf (bassist for Night Glitter) in Austin. “We were working on 1/2 inch tape and an 8 track tascam recorder from the 1970’s. No computers or screens in the studio for maximum creative clarity and focus,” drummer Jonny tells us.  They’ve collaborated with multiple labels already, and have plans to release new music throughout the fall. Their next release is due in September by a US label to be announced soon.
