A little back story on Joyus Wolf:

Three years ago, as the bandmates were gathered together in a restaurant a day before their first gig, the urgency of their name deficit hit home. They turned to an online band name generator for help, which by some mysterious, random calculation churned out word combinations like “Global Death” and “Intense Resentment.”

“We were crying laughing,” Joyous Wolf guitarist Blake Allard told the LATIMES in 2018.

Yet, the unlikely algorithm that birthed those comical names cranked out “Joyous Wolves.”

The seeds of the band were planted about three and a half years ago when Allard met singer Nick Reese at a Guitar Center.

The two jammed a bit and Allard inquired about any guitarist vacancies in Reese’s band, but there was none at the time. They exchanged information and went on their ways.

Eventually, Reese’s band broke up and he phoned Allard to start the group that would come to be Joyous Wolf.

Allard, Reese, drummer Robert Sodaro and bassist Greg Braccio are heavily influenced by blues along with hard rock bands like Rage Against the Machine and Alice in Chains.

The music sounds like a union of the genres — or as Allard calls it, “angry blues.”

The band’s single, “Mountain Man,” is the only song it has officially released, along with a few music videos on YouTube.

Reese’s howling vocals, summoned from his deepest interior, are a mix of rugged grunge and blues. Allard ferries in the latter parts of the song with a blistering, feral solo.

Allard said the band is working on an LP.

While the band is feeling the relief of first successes, its road was paved with obstacles typical of the music scene.
