REIGNWOLF is invading the streets unleashing throaty soulful howls, bleeding guitars plugged
into smoky half stacks, and the stomp of a vintage Ludwig bass drum. The wolf sound is fierce and
instinctual, a collision of rock and roll.
Born in the Great White North, Jordan Cook was influenced by his musician father, jamming around the
local club circuit and public school district in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan by age 6. Two years ago, Cook
packed up his gear and headed for Seattle, the only plan being to live out of his tent, free in the wild and
simply see what materialized. He started gaining attention while buying low-end guitars at local pawn
shops and began booking random shows. Reignwolf performances consisted of Cook playing solo with
any instrument he could get his hands on, always keeping an eye out for an intriguing collaboration.
Soon after arriving in Seattle, he was joined by the low end of brother Stitch and drum destroyer Texas
Jo; this gripping combination only intensified the Reignwolf sound.
Reignwolf announced their arrival to the music scene using the DIY approach, gaining a
loyal following by performing at local clubs and festivals such as Sasquatch, Coachella,
Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Voodoo Experience, and an opening slot for the 2013
Pixies tour. American Songwriter’s Top 10 Moments of Austin City Limits ranked Reignwolf #2, second
only to Atoms for Peace, #1. Reignwolf hit the scene hard and gained momentum, and landed a coveted
supporting slot on Black Sabbath's Spring Canadian Tour in 2014.
Up until recently, "Are You Satisfied?" was the only official song released by the band. Their second
song, "In The Dark" was recorded on Halloween night in New Orleans while in town for Voodoo Festival
at Ani DiFranco residence, with husband/engineer Mike "Nappy" Napolitano. Wanting to capture the
onstage spontaneity from their live shows, the highly anticipated first Reignwolf album is scheduled to
release in 2014.
The Reignwolf experience is best summed up by one of his lyrics from “Electric Love”: "I gave you my
soul, and I can't give you anything more"... and onstage Reignwolf undoubtedly gives "it all."
It all started with lighting water on fire. Vanessa Bley (lead vox, guitar), Robert Granata (guitar) and Anthony Marchesi (bass) met in 2011 while performing at a revolutionary anti-fracking (Pedal Power NYC) concert powered by bicycles or "natural ass." In early 2012, Vanessa Bley released her solo EP, a lush and vibrant alt-rock record which led to the band's formation as Beast Patrol. In October 2012 they released the EP "Fierce & Grateful," which received significant buzz leading to Rolling Stone's Band to Watch and a slot at Lollapalooza. After a year of extensive performing at packed east coast clubs and the addition of Jacob Read-Harber on drums, the four-piece has settled in and crafted their second record, "Unarm Yourself," set to release Spring 2014.
