about

"An Audience With The Winter Wolves" began swiftly on the heels of completing "The Autumn Waltz" in January of 2013. Initially scheduled to be a new E.P I discovered there was enough material for a Full Length instead.

We enlisted the wonderful talents of our friends to bring some color and light to the songs...

Shota Nakamura supplied his unique Psychedelic/Jazz Bass runs, Jen Hickey & Samantha Piper supplied their lovely harmonies, Ryan Carley (Kite Hill/Ohbijou) supplied his delicate touch on keys.

Dave Winer supplied a bit of class on Trumpet for 1 song & Jim Castillo who along w/ Production duties supplied Guitars & Keys..

The album is a mere $7.00 to download in it's entirety or PWYC for individual tracks. All donations will be used for creating hard copies of CD's as well as other band expenses in the near future.

We hope this musical excursion we've traveled on reaches your ears and your hearts.

Produced by Jim Castillo @ Cup Of Joe Studio.

Track Name: Lion's Pride
Courage stakes it's mighty ground
Two wounded hearts too bruised to say;
Your words mean nothin' too me now
No more will my heart be dismayed.

Wounds of some distant past
Sit stoically in the back of my mind.
Some nights we're never meant to last
Some ties we're never meant to bind.

How can I make sense of these things?
When my ego's lost it's Lion's Pride
You've chosen another side that's not mine.

Saw you once closed and dejected
Down at the end of the stairs.
Calm on your face not detected
Only saw an indifferent glare.

How can I make sense of these things?
When my ego's lost it's Lion's Pride
You've chosen another side that's not mine.
Track Name: Long Breath Of Winter
To a richer life i bid you well
Where the rewards seldom dwell.
Love is an avalanche w/ due peril
Bitterness strong as an arrow.

Where is the wonder often longed
Held deep inside where it belongs.
Bashful loneliness seldom strong
Sad bird on a wire w/ his song.

Sorrowful Winter
Slowly erodes
Wanton passion, Forever alone.

Sky it paints a deep charcoal light
Where the sun and the moon align the night.
Woven weary eyes are my guide
Seldom in awe or delight.

You came up beside me and i froze
The steam from your breath softly rose.
Words never wise slowly spoke
To live a life as one i can't bestow.

Sorrowful Winter
Slowly erodes
Wanton passion Forever alone.
Track Name: Rusholme Lane
Exotic flow of pun and allusion
Has left me at odds and total confusion.
These liberties have shaken and ruined
Foundations built on total illusion.

Humming a web of songs never rhymed.
The warmth of your breath still on my mind.

Thoughts in my mouth forever in clouds
Want to come out but should stay in somehow.
I'm sure there we're frowns to the ups and the downs
Was nothing less than a foolish hopeless clown.

Humming a web of songs never rhymed.
The warmth of your breath still on my mind.

Lazy stroll down Rusholme Lane
Remembering kisses in the warm rain.

Blindly fell to a newborn beginning
Thoughts we're lost now was winning.
A truer love to the one i was feeling
Should have felt this heart still beating.

Humming a web of songs never rhymed.
The warmth of your breath still on my mind.

Lazy stroll down Rusholme Lane
Remembering kisses in the warm rain.
Believe in a future but never the day.
Track Name: Make For The Wind
Fall burst forth in hysterical woe
Felt the unease slip down to my toes.
Ideals struggle, mouth running dry
Hoped this malaise would softly subside.

September resides to lasting impression
Harmonies glide in honeyed remembrance.
Caught a deep breath between a sigh
Make For The Wind w/ euphoric strides.

I'll give you my word
As soon as it's found.
The curtain closed at dawn.

Cover your face w/ your auburnt hair
Eyes transfixed in a dead dolls stare.
Move through time so graceful and true
Holding inside a poem so blue.

Heart flickers like a candle so bright
Believing eyes they sparkle in the night.
Voice sails like a siren caught in flight.
Feet flow fancy in wondrous delight.

I'll give you my word
As soon as it's found.
The curtain closed at dawn's behest.
Track Name: Promised Light
Saw her under pale shades of green
White as silk garments in a dream.
Aura relaxed & so serene
Like a ripple moving in a stream.

She hides from Winter's stoical breeze.
The Summer sun is what she needs.

Somewhere i sensed a soft despair
A longing of secrets to boldly share.
Distance too much for me to bear
Fire in her eyes told beware.

She hides from Winter's stoical breeze.
The Summer sun is what she needs.

I wish i could offer a comforting word
But my hearts too heavy, it won't be heard.

Woke to the dawn w/ sinful distress
A cacophonous sound in my head.
Your timbred voice duly said
I Promise a Light to rid the dread.

She hides from Winter's stoical breeze.
The Summer sun is what she needs.

I wish i could offer a comforting word
But my hearts too heavy, it won't be heard.
Track Name: Secrets & Lies
I appeared in your eyes a shadow distressed
Your answers succumbed to mysteriousness.
Tricks to convince my heart was your bliss
Saw through the mist was not mine but was his.

Words that you send w/ your heart placed in sound
Sent shivers that broke me for the same i had found.
But now that your happy the wayside i drift
The love that did bind was few & so swift.

Secrets & Lies we weave through the vines.
Serendipitous times are lost in the fire.

When i feel the dark cloud swallow me whole
Search for a memory to let me go home.
Listless at heart i continue to roam
Living a life as a long ruined poem.

Wishes & rhymes run deep as a well.
A rustic chill the breaze it does swell.
melancholy i'll always dispel.
The more it hurts i'll never tell.

Secrets & Lies we weave through the vines.
Serendipitous times are lost in the fire.
Track Name: Distant Words
Heard distant words in dexteritous rhyme
Weaved and the flowed underneath the noon sky.
Gently they stung then tickled my mind
Left me with visions but little to find.

Now im stranded beneath neon night
Embers of phosphorescent stars delight.
Little remorse and and so little respite
Flowers bloom with no light.

Busy streets bleed red and white.
Will you stay or hide from sight.

Shadows that once we're your guide.
Shadows do nothing for your pride.
