I’m excited to release the MARCUS WOLF TRIO EP. It’s the first offering of the TRIO that I’ve been working with over the course of the last year in LA. Marco Renteria on bass and Louie Palmer on drums. We all moved to LA around the same time last year…. Marco from Mexico City, Louie from London and myself from NYC… so far so good!


Basic session at Kingsize Studio in LA recorded by Owen Lewis. Additional recording by me at o1studio… Mixed and mastered by the great Phil Nicolo at Studio 4 in Conshohocken PA.


It was a fun opportunity to meet and start playing with Louie & Marco. All three of us had just moved to Los Angeles in early 2013. Marco from Mexico City, Louie from London and myself from NYC. It’s a big deal to move to a new town. We found each other and have been having fun playing since. Thanks guys for your support!
