Joyous Wolf has one of the fastest growing fan bases in rock n roll. Since forming the band in 2014, they have been wowing audiences with their refreshing brand of bluesy, modern-style, classic hard rock sound and electrifying live performances. A huge part of that onstage electricity is powered by lead vocalist, Nick Reese who impressively channels his inner James Brown and Jim Morrison as he shakes and shimmies like a bonafide old soul frontman – ladies beware. Throw in some jumps, a flip, and a few splits that would make David Lee Roth stand up and take notice; a tremendous voice that are equal parts Eddie Veder, Bob Seger, and Robert Plant; and you have one dynamically entertaining individual in Reese. Guitarist Blake Allard makes these ear pleasing riffs he plays look tremendously easy when they aren’t. The entire band is made up of extreme talents like Greg Braccio on bass and rounded out with the thundering drum work by Robert Sodaro. The band recently signed with Roadrunner and has been on fire ever since, shocking fans and building their fan base by the droves from city to city.
A few months ago Joyous Wolf released 2 tracks as a teaser to hold off fans until their debut studio album is released via Roadrunner Records. Those tracks were an original titled “Slow Hand” and a cover of Mountain’s “Mississippi Queen”. The band has now released an official video for “Mississippi Queen”. The video is a performance based interview and let me tell you know the madness that frontman Nick Reese portrays in this video isn’t just for the camera, each and every show he is just as energetic and electrifying. You can also bet your ass if he is on a stage that has something climbable he will find new heights and climb as high as possible. The band was even booted from a venue in Vegas earlier in the year because of Reese’s death defying performance. Enjoy the bands brand new video below.
