After a decade of work in two propulsive indie rock bands, Stephen Douglas Wolfe has found his solo voice. Wolfe’s Eastern Kansas hometown of Lawrence brought with it an opportunity to convene an impressive roster of musicians for his first solo album. Recording under the name Cavaliers in 2007, he released Except for the Birds featuring members of bands from the area including The Get Up Kids, Kelpie, Ghosty, and The Roseline to contribute to the record. After a hiatus brought upon partially by a professional move to NYC, recording would resume for Wolfe nearly a decade later in his new home of Syracuse, New York.
A series of digital singles including “O River” “Free” and “Pretty Baby” found their way out before the first physical release – the We’ll Live 7” vinyl – on March 25, 2016. The record was the first of a series of three vinyl singles planned in 2016 from Stephen Douglas Wolfe. The second installment – the Window 7” – was released on June 17, 2016 and The Animals 7" in November 2016.
Wolfe continued with his regular recording and independent releases of digital singles including two songs – Thoughts & Prayers and Believe Me – inspired by the shooting of and by police officers and then the current presidential campaign respectively. Stephen Douglas Wolfe has never held back his perspective of the world and he continues to share his view in music with socially conscious songs. His latest, also the first released on Aux Records, is the single Exhale, released October 6, 2017. A full-length release is planned for Spring 2018.
