Artist Biography:
Called a “highly effective slice of psychedelia,” Wolverton mines a vein of late 60s folk as they write and perform original music at the crossroads of three generations of listening and are fed by various geographies of origin and diverse backgrounds that include art, theatre, dance, poetry, and tinkering --- in addition to music. All these elements find their way into the writing and performing — and all band members contribute songs. Lyrically, Wolverton is unanchored, very visual and moving equally through memory, story, association and dark streaks of tradition.

You can almost say the band was an accident and for that reason was the only thing that could have happened — though in many ways Wolverton was already forming via friendships by the time they played their first gig in the over-sized bathroom of an empty penthouse on the top floor of a hotel in downtown San Antonio.

In 2013 they released the EP Horse Head Dawn, included in the FolkWorld Best of 2013 Editor's Choice list and in 2015, they released a second EP, Things Left On Earth and were included on Roots In The Shadows of San Antonio, Vol. 2 and The Active Listener Acid Folk Sampler, Volume Two.

May 20, 2017 is the release date for Wolverton’s first full-length album, Wizard Land. With fourteen songs, the album, titled for the green belt near Kate Terrell’s home, is representative of live sets the band has played for the past couple of years. Produced and recorded live by Joe Reyes, with additional instruments by the band, Jessica DeCuir, Kim Mackenzie and Lindsey Verrill.
