A. Wolf and Her Claws In-Studio
| 22:04

Aby Wolf was chosen to partake in the Cedar Cultural Center's 416 Club Commission in 2011 and received a grant to explore a new electro-art-pop project that had been stewing in her mind. Recruiting the talents of Jesse Whitney, Linnea Mohn and Joey Van Phillips, Wolf created A. Wolf and Her Claws. Instead of a one-off performance as originally planned for the Cedar's winter season, a full-fledged band has been formed and there are no signs of slowing the momentum.

They've created a work that's challenging, an album which is soaked in unusual instrumentation and rhythm which on paper may seem difficult to translate live. However, suspicions are quickly laid to rest once the songs are rendered on a stage. They may be very new to the local music scene, but A. Wolf and Her Claws already sound like well-established veterans.

Songs performed: "Zero To 60," "Drama Queen," and "All This Time"
