Hey guys!


It's that time of the month again, and today's blog is about May and June, more summer shows confirmed and working on artwork for the EP cover. 



Let’s start by telling you about our new confirmed summer show. 



We’re happy to announce we will be playing at the Thamesmead Festival! 





Do not forget to check out their website (https://www.thamesmeadnow.org.uk):


“(...) Thamesmead Festival


Saturday 10 August

12pm - 7.30pm

Southmere Park, SE2 9XA



The Thamesmead Festival is returning to Southmere Park on Saturday 10 August!



This year's headliners are Kele Le Roc – the multiple MOBO award-winning star of top 10 smashes ‘My Love’ and ‘A Little Bit of Lovin’, and the voice of Basement Jaxx hit ‘Romeo’, and R&B and soul singer Terri Walker, the voice behind the Shanks & Bigfoot hit ‘Sing-A-Long,’ and solo tracks ‘Missing You’ and ‘Ching Ching (Lovin' You Still)’.



Featuring a host of talent from Thamesmead and beyond, the community-powered festival will see Park Stage performances by MOBO-winning conscious rapper Still Shadey, award-winning funk and soul outfit Groove 101, Black Wolf Blues, and local favourites Old Boy Blues Band and MC Redrum. The shady environs of the Unplugged Stage will host intimate spoken word and acoustic sets from the likes of Brit School graduate Gönül and singer-songwriter Sam Winston. A short walk away through the trees, the Southmere Stage will be the place to see a rich range of dance styles from streetdance by locally-based Dynamix to performances by Bollywood Vibes and Capoeira Muzenz



Mouthwatering culinary creativity can be found in abundance from vendors like Yeti’s Authentic Kitchen offering the best of home-cooked Nigerian cuisine, to ZIZI’s delicious variety of Lebanese and Sierra Leonean food. 



Details of the full event programme will be announced soon…”







And on Saturday August 10th, we will be on stage at 1 PM, so do not miss out! This is going to be an amazing (and free!) event open to all ages,



Do not miss out on this great show, we hope to see you guys there. 



And in case you hadn't heard, we are currently preparing our second studio release: a brand new EP, with the first single to be released within the next few months.



Our first studio album was an absolute success, with results and feedback from the public much better than expected, and if you haven't already don't forget to check it out on all digital platforms: Black Wolf Blues.



And now a couple of years later, a lot of hard work and preparation has been put into this EP, with some of the songs having been in the works for years, now finally ready to be released.



Recording technology has evolved immensely in the last two decades, giving many independent artists the opportunities that once only big studios and labels could offer.



The music industry has also changed, allowing for artists to distribute their music directly to all digital platforms accessible to anyone around the world, as well as interact directly with their fanbase online and on social media.



And in case you didn't know, our guitarist Jake is also a certified music producer, fresh out of one of the best music universities in London, and he will be in charge of the recording and production of our EP.



Taking all of this combined with the amazing creative output we have been getting from our new line up, and all the beautiful material that has been coming out of it, means that this EP is only the second of many releases yet to come.



One thing that really amazed me personally and that became one of the funnest parts of the whole thing was the writing and recording process.



The writing and recording process we established in this new line up is better than ever! And on top of it all, the dynamic we established between us as band members during the writing process and during the planning of this recording project as a whole is something that finished closing the bonds between us as a band.



We are really excited and working on this project every single day, it will really blow your minds.



You will naturally also get to see the artwork of the EP - which will be awesome - from the very first single, as well as the name of the EP. And that is what we have been working on over the last few weeks - one of the last details before the first single comes out! 



Keep an eye out for more updates soon. 



As an independent band we need all the support we can get, so we are running a crowdfunding campaign to help us fund the recording of our EP and make it as awesome as possible for you!



If you'd like to contribute with any amount just head on over to our website or Linktree and you will find the link to the crowdfunding there.



Check out our Instagram, Facebook and YouTube for some of our videos, pictures and exclusive content.



New videos and pictures are uploaded to our YouTube channel every week, so don't forget to like and subscribe so that you don't miss out on new content weekly.



We also publish a new blog every month, and next month's blog is going to be one of a kind. So stay tuned and rock on and have an amazing week!




Black Wolf Blues
