Biography

     The Wolfe is an alternative-rock trio from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Canada’s Top 4 Finalist for CBC Searchlight 2017, and recipient of their home town Best of the Best awards for Best Band/ Musician and Best Local Musician Made Good. They’ve also been awarded for the Toronto Independent Music Award for Best out of Province and were nominees for Canadian Folk Music Award for Young Performer of the Year in 2017. They have just returned from a Western Canadian Tour promoting their debut EP, The Wolfe and are now currently in the studio recording their second EP which is to drop in the spring of 2018. The Wolfe has a sound like no other. The band produces an eclectic sound that combines haunting vocals, delayed guitar, gritty bass lines and engaging rhythms. Having been compared to Metric, The Cranberries and U2, The Wolfe has had many say their sound is too unique to pinpoint exactly.  The Wolfe is something that should not only be heard, but seen. Their high-energy show has the captivated crowds of Ness Creek Music Festival, the Regina Folk Festival, and Borealis Music Festival to name a few.  

The group formed in 2012 with the help of Lucy James. Thompson, Giroux and Bayda were all in elementary school when their musical career started in The Wolfe. The band spent their first years building the foundation they stand on today, choosing to record their songs progressively from the years 2014 -2016 with the release of their EP, The Wolfe in 2016.

With the success of their first tour, The Wolfe is planning to tour in the summer of 2018 with their new EP, attending Canadian showcases and play shows throughout the years in and out of their province. The Wolfe is a young band of 18 year olds but have already accomplished much. This is just the beginning of The Wolfe.

Lyrics

The Sea And Me

Written By: Gabrielle Giroux

She's hiding far away,
Don't you see that she's afraid of the sea?
But they shove it down her throat
Oh those friends they don't know
That in the ocean she'll go

Oh we'll find our way home
Away from the coast
Oh this isn't your home
On the ocean floor

She hides her face for the world to see
And keeps her secrets known
So she won't fade away alone
'Til the tides grown old

Oh we'll find our way home
Away from the coast
Oh this isn't your home
On the ocean floor

She's hiding far away
Don't you see that she's afraid of the sea?
But they shove it down her throat
Oh those friends they don't know
That in the ocean she'll go

Oh we'll find our way home
Away from the coast
Oh this isn't your home
On the ocean floor

Oh we'll find our way home
Away from the coast
Oh this isn't your home
On the ocean floor

Dumb Dog

Written By: Von Bayda

I won't play it dumb
I'm not gonna change for you
Take it or leave it
It's what I am and what I do
Unfriend me or dislike me
When it all comes down to it
I'm just a mutt who knows the tricks

I think there's been a mistake
Who would accept it this way
I think too much
I'm getting tired of the games
I think of this alone and it's saturday night
I think so I am single, just a mutt's bite

I will say how I feel
And risk standing alone
Not saying what you want
I am myself and not your dog bone
You can't leash me in
When it all comes to it
I'm just a mutt who knows the trick

I think there's been a mistake
Who would accept it this way
I think too much
I'm getting tired of the games
I think of this alone and it's saturday night
I think so I am single, just a mutt's bite

I think of this alone and it's saturday night
I think so I am single, just a mutt's bite

I think of this alone and it's saturday night
I think so I am single, just a mutt's bite

Can You Hear Me?

Written By: Gabrielle Giroux

Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill
Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill tonight

I bite my tongue so you can't hear me
I don't know what you want me to be

You better be quiet, you better be brave
Don't make me regret
You better be quiet, you better be brave
Don't make me regret all of this

Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill
Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill tonight

We're shaking, fighting for our lives
The air blows grey in winter whites

You better be quiet, you better be brave
Don't make me regret
You better be quiet, you better be brave
Don't make me regret all of this

Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill
Like a pack of wolves we're coming in for the kill tonight

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me howl?

Need You

Written By: Gabrielle Giroux

Are you more afraid of death or dying?
When every second isn't given
Do you crave destruction?
Do you smoke to flip a calendar?

Because you know, every living creature dies alone
But I need you, like water in my lungs
But I need you (I need you)

We're running in circles
We always do
We're like deer in the headlights
We never move

Because you know, every living creature dies alone
But I need you, like water in my lungs
But I need you

Because you know, every living creature dies alone
But I need you, like water in my lungs
But I need you

Arm Yourself

Written By: Gabrielle Giroux

Something is missing and I don't know what
A ribcage without a lung
A chest without a beating heart
There's a small space between that wasn't there before

I am terrified it will swallow me whole
Arm yourself child, we are going to war
If you wear my skin, show me how to live
Arm yourself child, we are going to war

Sweetheart, can you hear the noise on the street?
How poetic it seems when no one else can hear me
There's a small space between that wasn't there before

I am terrified it will swallow me whole
Arm yourself child, we are going to war
If you wear my skin, show me how to live
Arm yourself child, we are going to war

I am terrified

Tip Of My Tongue

Written By: Gabrielle Giroux

Tell me who I should be
Tell me the right thing
Tell me what I should know
Tell me the wrong things we shouldn't do

Tell me what I should be
Tell me your secrets
Tell me who I should know
Tell me the bad things we could do

'Cause I'm not sure how to feel
It's on the tip of my tongue
Do you remember what it was like
To be kids free from harm

Tell me what's on your mind
Tell me the bad things
Tell me where we could go
Tell me what you need from me tonight

'Cause I'm not sure how to feel
It's on the tip of my tongue
Do you remember what it was like
To be kids free from harm

'Cause I'm not sure how to feel
It's on the tip of my tongue
Do you remember what it was like
To be kids free from harm
