Attic Wolves is a folk-rock band from Kansas City. Five young men with their voices, a drum set, guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass, trumpet, accordion, bells, all together bringing an endearing sound and a new fire to folk music.
Beginning in June of 2011 they’ve had a steady cadence of song writing, recording and performing. They met their first audiences in humble coffee shops around town. Those audiences quickly outgrew the venues with many nights having standing room only. Soon after, they began playing larger venues downtown KC, often to seemingly empty rooms at midnight on a weekday. Before too long, promoters and talent buyers took notice of the emerging group, and saw Attic Wolves play on weekends for packed bars and venues in downtown Kansas City.
The band has always been met with a high demand for recorded material. Their first album, “Carry Us On” (2012) was funded from beginning to end by generous fans, friends, and family. It was recorded in March of 2012 in Springfield, MO with producer Paul Carabello. The album has seen a fair amount of local radio play, and was voted in The Pitch magazine “Readers Choice Best Local Album of 2012”.
Since then, Attic Wolves have been featured at local fairs and festivals, including a pre-game show at Arrowhead Stadium. Their efforts are now turning towards the road. Their pace of growth is ferocious, and shows no sign of letting up. They plan to travel regularly and are scheduled to finish their first full length album late in the summer of 2013.
