Catch Reignwolf Tonight Before They Hit the Big Time

August 1st, 2014

Jordan Cook grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and, thanks to a musician father, he began playing guitar at just two years old. He later decamped for Seattle and began buying cheap guitars and booking shows wherever he could, performing as if the guitar were one of his limbs. Cook eventually began playing as Reignwolf with bassist David “Stitch” Rapaport and drummer Joseph Braley. And they started gaining attention for their wild, incredibly high-energy shows on the festival circuit. Rolling Stone calls Cook “an unhinged, lovelorn, electric Canadian blues wild man who can’t decide if he wants to be Robert Plant or Jimmy Page.” And before hardly anyone even knew who he was, Cook and Co. (above, performing “Are You Satisfied?” and below, doing a solo cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” for KEXP FM) were out on the road with both the Pixies and Black Sabbath. And now they’re coming our way. Go see Reignwolf tonight at The Bowery Ballroom. NYC’s own three-piece rock outfit Strngrs open the show.
