Southern California rock quartet JOYOUS WOLF, once described by the Los Angeles Times as a “mix of rugged grunge and blues,” are showing off their contemplative side with two acoustic tracks featuring stripped down versions of fan-favorites.
The live and unplugged versions of Odyssey and Quiet Heart are available via Roadrunner Records here.
“I think we show a different emotional aspect with these renditions,” the band says. “It was a great release of stress to get out and do something during the early pandemic days.”
Joyous Wolf — Nick Reese (vocals), Blake Allard (guitar), Greg Braccio (bass), and Robert Sodaro (drums) — are known for their rowdy and wild electric performances, lacing every note, chord, and riff with equal parts blood, sweat, and tears. With this release, the group shows off its softer — but equally as powerful — side.

Earlier this year, Joyous Wolf released the four-song ‘Mother Rebel’ EP, which is available here. The live performance video of Mother Rebel was filmed during the same studio sessions in which the EP audio was recorded. The visuals are trippy while the clip crackles with the band’s signature live intensity. It will make viewers feel as if they were front row center at a Joyous Wolf show.
