For the Wolf
For The Wolf is a high-energy alternative rock band hailing from the small town of Nowata, Oklahoma. Channeling elements from the last thirty years, For The Wolf is taking music back to a better time. Formed in 2010, For The Wolf has been taking the Tulsa scene by storm, electrifying every stage they play. Fronted by a female vocalist whose playful demeanor and edgy vocal styling's make her shine in a male dominated industry. With a group made up of such eclectic musicians, For The Wolf aids music back to music one show at a time. For The Wolf has been featured twice on 104.5 The Edge's Homegroan Heroes and several times during regular air play on Local's at 11. Their single "Hideous Hideaways" was chosen for The 2012 Edge Homegroan Compilation CD and was voted 2nd place, by their fans, to play the Oklahoma Stage at the Tulsa State Fair. For The Wolf are currently playing shows in Tulsa and surrounding areas in support of their new album "Hi, Tapes!" and their first music video for the song "Hideous Hideaways".
With a barrage of adjectives and hyperbole, musicians describe themselves and seek to impress those unfamiliar with their work. Flowery expressions illustrate how their music transcends definition. This all, of course, is wasted space as ten seconds of a song can tell you more about a band than paragraphs will ever say.
Pretense aside, let us speak of Sleepwalking Home. A quintet from Tulsa, OK. The band consists of vocalist Michelle Ameen, guitarist Kenny Matthews, guitarist Justin Huggins, bassist Trey Landis and drummer/vocalist Nick Barton. Sleepwalking Home blends elements of Hardcore, Progressive and Pop to ride a balance between the aggressive and beautiful.
“To me it is all about showing the heavy and melodic.” Says Matthews, “I mean, there is no formula when we write a song, but somehow both sides are present when it is finished.”
There is an intelligence to the songwriting, while still maintaining unfettered energy and pop sensibility.
When asked to describe the music Ameen answered, “Our music, in a multitude of ways, sparks incredible emotion deep beneath our hard surfaces and lyrically it gives everybody something to relate to.”
Sleepwalking Home is a group of people who genuinely enjoy each other’s company and value each other’s opinion. The bi-product of which seems to be really good music.
There we have it. Sleepwalking Home. A few paragraphs of, almost, exaggeration free information, but you know the drill. Take a listen and see what you think. I am betting you will like what you hear.
Recently described as a breath of fresh air, this piano driven, female fronted rock band is positioned to break out in the mid-west. Keep an eye out for them around Oklahoma and surrounding states...
Imagine members of Paramore and Green Day fighting to the death with only the strongest surviving - Those remaining are Hey!Dollface; ready to entrance bystanders with unlimited energy, body-shaking grooves, and a pink-haired singer who stays in tune.
Music makes the world spin.
Since the beginning of recorded history, musicians have graced the masses with art. Most artists strive for years to reach inside someone with a medium and reconstruct their whole state of existence beyond a level previously unattainable.
That state of existence can be materialized as a soul; something we each have that is as unique as each star in the sky. Encapsulating that soul is something just as unique: You. So, in ways, one could say that Bria Edwards, Fabian Robles, Daniel Rodriguez, and Casper Guinn comprised Hey!Dollface for You.
Music is ever-evolving, like all of us Earth inhabitants. The band's music revolves around our life experiences, both verbally and sonically. Some composites are vibrant and energetic staccatos of personal strength while others are the lullabies of sweet, confident accomplishment.
Each member puts a piece of life into the songs until a body is created from art. This body acts as the vessel to reach inside of You and let the passion of music rest lightly on one's state of existence. The Heartbeat lays the foundation for all the rhythms and cycles that reside within the body, The Soul bridges the gap between the physical and spiritual by resonance, and The Voice speaks the mind, heart, and soul of the now-alive entity.
This is the music that makes the world go 'round.
This is the soul that fills the lifeless dolls.
This is the vessel that the artists use to bridge the mind and soul.
So it is for this we say:
