Born out of the bustling indie rock-centric borough of Brooklyn, NYC, the Cape Cod-bred rockers formed around the talents of Johnny Stevens (guitar, vocals, synths) and twin siblings Ryan (drums, vocals) and Rich (bass, vocals) Meyer.
The band’s debut album, Mister Asylum, also produced by Joel Hamilton (Black Keys, Elvis Costello) earned them two Grammy nominations for ‘Best Rock Song’ and ‘Best Rock’ Album. The boys performed their song ‘Lydia’ at the Grammy’s pre-telecast show. Their Grammy journey was documented by Billboard, The New York Times, and more.
Praise for The Boy Who Died Wolf:
“With The Boy Who Died Wolf, Stevens and the Meyer twins have taken a big step toward fine-tuning their retro-grunge attack into something far more dynamic, soulful and alluring. “

“The first single off TBWDW was the infectious “My Name Is Human”, which layers dark synths along the cinematic production. “Little One” follows suit with a production that is less dark and a little bit more “upbeat,” the word frontman Johnny Stevens frequently used to describe the new album’s vibe.”
“Wolf broadens the band’s sonic scope, folding riot-inciting punk, electro-pop, desert rock, bluesy hard rock, and prog-rock into its fray.”
