Southern California quartet JOYOUS WOLF has created its own hybrid of hard-driving rock 'n' roll, soul, blues, and alternative music. As such, they have steadily built their reputation as one of the brightest up-and-comers in the burgeoning scene. Mixing majestic riffs with soulful vocals, undeniable swagger, and the kind of hair-on-fire live performances that leave fans trying to catch their breath for days after the fact, JOYOUS WOLF is ready to take the leap into the rock 'n' roll stratosphere with its latest sonic transmission.
The band has dropped the video for the new song "Fearless". Watch and listen below.
"'Fearless' was a bit of a wild card," frontman Nick Reese shares about the song. "We completed it in the final days of our album sessions and it was the only song we hadn't completed prior. It became one of those songs that fell together in an effortless way. I've found myself reflecting on how unafraid I was as a kid. I feel like that's something more than a few people can relate to. For the most part, I like to believe we are born fearless and we are conditioned to be afraid."
JOYOUS WOLF is continuing to work on its debut full-length.

JOYOUS WOLF formed in Orange County, California in 2014. Heavily influenced by artists spanning not only various genres, but literally decades of music, their electric live performances would take them from the clubs of the Sunset Strip to international tours, earning them a recording deal with Roadrunner Records in 2018.
The quartet has shown to be a force both on and off stage, having released its critically acclaimed debut EP, "Place In Time", on Roadrunner in 2019, which led to subsequent tours supporting rock icons such as Slash and DEEP PURPLE. The single "Odyssey" arrived in June 2020 and was followed by the four-song "Mother Rebel" EP, the title track of which has received airplay on KLOS, and a two-song unplugged release featuring "Odyssey" and "Quiet Heart".
