House of Wolves

House of Wolves

House of Wolves is the solo music project of Los Angeles native Rey Villalobos, the band name taken from the literal translation of his family name. Villalobos classically trained on piano, falling in love with the Chopin nocturnes early on and whose phrasing permeates his songwriting. Starting out as a drummer and then emerging as the singer and frontman for indie rock band The Coral Sea, Villalobos next started House of Wolves as a way to access his more mellow acoustic-driven folk compositions. Personified by delicate arrangements, the music is an intimate portrait of hauntingly sentimental and unreserved songs echoing from another era.
