  • “Each album is a challenge and every one of them has been a learning experience. I think that they've become more personal and revealing as I've continued. I still feel the way I felt when I started out decades ago — I'm just trying to prevail and continue to grow as an artist...and to keep rolling on with music as a cure for loneliness."

  • "To those of us who followed the rock scene in Boston in the 1980’s, the name Peter Wolf has an almost familial ring to it. He’s most well-known as the front man of the J. Geils Band, but he joins us now in-studio with a new band comprised of some of the best jazz, bluegrass and R&B musicians in the region."
