About Wool on Wolves

Formed in 2008 while attending the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canadian quintet Wool on Wolves have a penchant for blending roots and folk-rock tones with ambitiously arranged pop. In this truly collaborative project, members Thomas Reikie, Eric Leydon, Gordon Brasnett, Brody Irvine, and Kevin George each play multiple instruments and all contribute equally to the songwriting and arranging duties, with Reikie taking most of the lead vocal parts. Following a bitter dispute regarding the original Vancouver sessions for what was supposed to be their debut LP, Wool on Wolves ended up recording their initial EP, 2010's Hate Is Poor, in their own Edmonton rehearsal space. They quickly followed up with their first full-length LP, Grey Matter, later that year, earning a pair of Edmonton Music Awards and a nomination for Rock Album of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards. Their rich, detailed sound often employs expansive horn and string sections and the band has been favorably compared to acts like Wilco and Ryan Adams. Their second album, Measures of Progress, was released in late 2012. ~ Timothy Monger
