Wolf People — a British band signed to North American label Jagjaguwar — comes from the imagination of singer and guitarist Jack Sharp, who crafts fantastical story songs from bits of history and his own imagination. Named for the children’s book, Little Jacko and the Wolf People, and taking the shape of bluesy, retro rock drawing on 60’s folk and 70’s classic rock, the band uses powerful hooks and complex, drifting melodies to produces psychedelic results. On their first ever North American tour, the band stopped by to play some tunes and talk about their recent releases.
Featured song: “When The Fire Is Dead In The Grate”
