Hailing from the outskirts of Chicago, IL, Manwolves, have been flourishing out of the Chicago scene in recent years. Known for their distinct genre-bending sound that fosters elements of rock, hip-hop, & jazz, the group has amassed over 57 million streams on Spotify with an average of 350,000 monthly listeners and have reached No.4 on Spotify's coveted Viral Chart.
Composed of lifelong friends Jamie (vocals), Eli (guitar), Henry (bass), Julian (drums), & Ari (keys), who initially bonded over their individual obsessions with music in middle school, they decided to see what would happen if they worked together. The result was electric and Manwolves were born…
With multiple sold out headlining shows in venues such as Thalia Hall, Lincoln Hall, Chop Shop, & Subterranean, playing alongside other major up and coming acts such as Ric Wilson and opening for acts such as Omar Apollo and Boy Pablo they have been deemed as one of the most exciting live acts in the city.
Manwolves released, ‘Sleeping In’ July 2022, which incorporates their incendiary live sound, thematically tackling the often troubling & unnatural relationship many of us have with the internet & social media.
