Kid Wolf with Hawthorn
Max Bouzinov and Mike Prisby had played around the Boston scene in a Black-Keys-influenced blues-rock quartet in 2012. After disbanding and playing separately in other bands for several years, Max and Mike came together again in the spring of 2016 with a folkier approach to songwriting.
The resulting band has the overdriven spirit of an electric rock band with the intricacies of acoustic instruments and vocal harmonies. Chris Davis joined the band in early 2017, helping to expand Kid Wolf's acoustic sound, as well as providing the missing piece necessary to develop the band into an electric trio. The band then quickly grew into a 5-piece electric outfit with the additions of Anna Been--providing fullness with vocal harmonies and harmonica, as well as helping with rhythm and percussion duties--and Alex Mijailovic--lending textural support and Derek Trucks-like stylings on guitar.
After running a successful crowdfunding campaign to raise money for studio time, Kid Wolf joined up with Boston producer Mike Davidson to record at Davidson's Plaid Dog Recording Studio in Allston, MA. The resulting 5-track EP is was released on August 24th, 2017.
The women of Hawthorn weave melodic layers into harmonies pulled from traditional folk roots. Their mutual love of the natural world, storytelling, and community moves them to create music colored by both external and internal landscapes. The Hawthorn tree, native to their own New England and their ancestral homelands of the British Isles, is said to be inhabited by the fairies, serving as a portal to the spirit world. Through the meeting of Heather and Taylors individual experiences, joined by bassist Alex Gasser and an evolving community of Bostons finest instrumentalists, Hawthorn creates magical blends of sound that are passionately full: of vibrancy, of tenderness, of strength.
