"Not one to be categorized into a single genre, WolF J utilizes his deep love of music and art to redefine the way our city understands music. Yet, he views this “musical revolution” as something that comes from what he already loves doing in the first place. And much like his new mixtape, UpSideDownDay TapeMix, he truly embodies a man of originality, insight and fortitude. Enlisting the help of home grown producers: Rich Kidd, The Carps, KJ, LordQuest and Shane Tone on UpSideDownDay TapeMix, WolF J takes us on a journey to a far away galaxy that brings us closer to understanding his subconscious. Along the way, we are met with a sonic clash of distinct sounds that shape his everyday thoughts, his way of deliverance in every track, and most importantly, his undying devotion to his art form that oozes out of him from the moment you meet him." - http://freshlyeducatedmen.wordpress.com

Bio

Sometimes you have to feel to see. Senses must blur in order to focus. WolF J is an artist, creating entire experiences that speak to every reflex and frequency. 
 
As a talented songwriter and performer, he blends genres seamlessly, jumping between bars, melodies and everything in between with lyrics as honest as they are poetic. Music that values the journey over the destination. Elements of soul, hip hop, electronica create the perfect soundscape for that ride. 
 
Since releasing his first project UpsideDown Day in 2009, he’s done over 100 shows; opening for artists like Shad K and Keshia Chante along the way. His performances blur the lines between high energy and intimate, and is what earned him his growing following of fellow artists and fans of a dope live show. 
 
His music is gaining international traction, being featured on blogs all over the U.S., Hong Kong, France and Poland to name a few.  
 
As a graphic designer and creative director, his vibrant work reveals a mind full of colour, inspiration and perfect execution.  Part of Toronto-based art collective 88 Days of Fortune, his work speaks for itself.
