The Big Wolf Band has wowed audiences, festivals and promoters up and down the country and the band are now in the process of mixing their live album and working on their third album for release later this year.

Formed in Birmingham in 2014, blues rock outfit Big Wolf Band fronted by acclaimed guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Jonathan Earp and co-founder Mick Jeynes the bass player, continue to go from strength to strength.

With two number 1 Amazon Chart bestselling albums in A Rebel’s Story released in 2017 and Be Free (featuring vocals from Zoe Green) released in 2019 and a number 2 Amazon Chart single in Get Out released in 2022 they have caught the attention of the music industry. The albums and single also achieved IBBA top 5 and Top 20 iTunes status.

The albums and singles showcase the brilliant musicianship and songwriting talents of Jonathan Earp and as a result have garnered airplay from Paul Jones on his Radio 2 show, Planet Rock and HRH radio. A wide range of international podcast and radio stations have also enthusiastically embraced Big Wolf Band’s songs and are playing them regularly on their shows.

The band have gathered a very strong following which has not only been generated from their recorded output but also by their dynamic and energy filled live sets.

Big Wolf have toured extensively across the UK and have supported high profile artists such as Bernie Marsden of Whitesnake, Kirk Fletcher, Elles Bailey, Pat McManus, Chantel McGregor, Erja Lyytinen, Stacey Collins and Climax Blues Band. 2022 has been a tremendous year for the band.

Last year the band enjoyed playing sold out shows at the the award winning Tuesday Night Music Club in Coulsdon, HRH Blues at the O2 Sheffield Academy and the Temperance Bar in Leamington Spa receiving outstanding reviews.

Big Wolf were also finalists at the 2022 UK Blues Challenge event in Weston Super Mare where they went down a storm with organisers and fans alike. Exactly the same responses were received from fans and promoters at shows played by the band at The Darlington Blues Club and the Buxton Blues Festival.

“Beautiful, emotional, wonderful blues at its best” Steve Beastie – HRH Radio of the Big Wolf Band, superb performance” Edinburgh Blues Club

“Kicking off the night with Heaven’s Got the Blues from their 2017 debut album A Rebels Story, the moment Jon played his guitar the crowd roared and showed their love and were just pleased to see him back on the stage where he belongs. It must have been a total rush for him to hear the cheers and just to be out there live again doing what he does best; Jonathan is a tremendous guitarist and plays a mix of traditional blues and blues rock, and he also has that blues rasp in his voice” Dave Martin 9th October Big Wolf Band comeback gig.
