WOLVES CROSSING THE DELAWARE
Todd Wolfe cut his teeth as lead guitarist for Sheryl Crow before starting the Todd Wolfe Blues Project. Now named simply Wolfe, Todd picks up where he left off, showcasing his original bluesadelic material with a searing rock style and a powerhouse band that delivers tasty blues with a hefty side of jam.
On Delaware Crossing, the band produces echoes of Fleetwood Mac at their absolute best and a classic Rolling Stones sound, and blends classic and modern sensibilities. John Popper (Blues Traveler) also lends a hand and a harp to the album. Wolfe offers top notch blues rock guitar playing with solid vocals and songwriting, and the tracks range from searing blues to the beautifully sad "One Lost Love."
Delaware Crossing is about as hard driving a guitar players' album as can be found. Wolfe plays and sings as if he is taking no prisoners, and these tracks range in style from A to Z (Allmans to ZZ Top) while being stamped with Wolfe's own signature. If you appreciate rock/blues guitar, head to your record store to score this album
