Connie Bollinger of KDHX writes of Raven Wolf:
Here in Saint Louis, a town with high expectations from its Blues Men, Raven Wolf stands as a master of soul and spirit. His brand of magical mystical blues and jazz is earthy, visceral, emotional. He whispers his soul into the saxophone and the music that flows out is alluring and tantalizing, like an ache deep inside your mind. He can make your heart cry with longing or lead you playfully into the coolest of cool jazz. His unique interpretation of the Native American flute is an experience not to be missed.
Raven Wolf doesn't just play music, he takes you on a journey through many lands and cultures, introduces you to many styles and genres. His performances are adventures into the sacred and the sensual, where delights abound and the only thing you have to do is relax and enjoy. Come journey with him.
