Black Wolf Blues is a blues rock band from London, UK.
The band was originally formed in São Paulo - Brazil, in 2019 by frontman and guitarist Rafael Miranda. Having had a number of great musicians in its first line ups such as Freed de Souza, Nelson Oliveira, Daniel Plothow and Luke Rizzo, the band would perform regularly at popular venues in São Paulo. They would also go on to release their debut self-titled album Black Wolf Blues, available on all streaming platforms worldwide, the style ranging from instrumental to blues and hard rock.
In 2020 frontman Rafael moved the band's base of operations to London, to pursue the project with a new line up of musicians. A plan which was momentarily put on hold due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but as of early 2022 the project was back on track, with the band quickly establishing itself in the London rock scene. A dear friend to the band, Liam Hutchinson was on bass from mid 2022 to mid 2023.
Black Wolf Blues consists of Rafael Miranda (vocals and guitar), Jake Storey (guitar), Cameron Storey (drums) and Nicolas Richards (bass). A unique blend of blues, rock n' roll and hard rock is the band’s trademark. They perform regularly at popular venues in London as well as promotional events.
And last but not least the band are currently recording their second studio release: a brand new EP, with its first single to be released in the next few months.
