We’re rather crestfallen that we didn’t get a chance to catch Stevie Wolf when we were at SXSW last month despite how much he’s enamored us with with his sooty yet vulnerable sound, a rousing fusion of alt pop, bluesy rock, and electro-soul. Listening to new single Yves Klein Blue leaves us hoping we’ll get a new chance to catch him in California somewhere down the line. After all, Colorado isn’t too far away, right? Stevie Wolf has delivered a song that alternates between booming determination and tender introspection. He explores feelings of loneliness and disconnection on Yves Klein Blue, which exposes those innermost thoughts of wanting to find a true connection and raises the question “could you ever know me at all?” Stevie’s growing presence in the new music scene has lead to countless streams on his prior singles as well as coveted placements on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and the US Viral 50 list. Keep up with him on his quirky, clever website, here.

Since we shared Colorado singer songwriter Stevie Wolf’s Who, the track has gained over 150K plays on Spotify as well as been added to numerous Spotify playlists, including that ever treasured New Music Friday compilation and the US Viral 50 list. And now, Stevie is back to stun with his exquisitely emotive voice and his genre defying fortitude on new single Low. Its sooty soulful, mournfully solemn acoustic blues blooms into sanguine waltzing alt pop, before tucking back into its worn and leathery, bitter and aching indie rock.  

Stevie explains, “I’ve had depression since I was 13. And it’s rarely the reeling, twisting misery often depicted. I grew up listening to emo and metalcore and those genres usually take a pretty dramatic approach to inner turmoil. But there’s not a lot of music about incipient, lingering depression: the kind where, from the moment you wake until you the moment fall asleep, you just generally feel empty and flat. Maybe you don’t even cry; you just feel tired and sluggish and don’t want to see your friends or really talk to anyone so you make excuses and cancel plans and just hide away in your bedroom. One day you wake up and realize that weeks have gone by and you didn’t really do anything. You didn’t take any risks or try anything new, and your friends feel less close to you because they haven’t really seen you much. You languish slowly while you decay.” It’s a familiar affliction for many these days, and quite often a well kept secret, but now we have Stevie Wolf to comfort us and remind us not to suffer in silence, to reach out to one another and lift each other out of these devastating “lows”.
