Growing up in an artistic, politically engaged family, Peter Wolf became an early rock'n'roll convert after attending an Alan Freed rock'n'roll revue that included performances by Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, & Little Richard. During his time fronting the J. Geils Band, the band released 13 albums, topped the pop single charts with "Freeze Frame," "Love Stinks," "Centerfold," and earned a reputation as one of rock's most exciting live acts, thanks in large part to Wolf's hyperactive stage presence. After going solo with Lights Out, Wolf continued to stake out new musical territory while collaborating with Aretha Franklin, Merle Haggard, John Lee Hooker, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Little Milton, Wilson Pickett, Shelby Lynne and Neko Case. Wolf temporarily reunited with his J. Geils Band cohorts for live shows on several occasions between 1999-2015, but his solo career has remained his creative focus, as his latest release, A Cure for Loneliness, makes clear.
