There will be plenty of great artist to check out this weekend at Loufest, especially when it comes to the local talent being represented at the fest. One artist you may not have heard of before, but need to look out for is Starwolf.
While Starwolf only has two official releases, those two tracks leave us wanting more, and expecting big things from this band in the future. The three piece group from St. Louis plays their unique brand of retro-funk, which they describe as the 70’s having a love affair with the 80’s. Their distinct and catchy sound is a result of their diverse musical inspirations including Bill Withers, The Talking Heads, Tears for Fears, and lately… Al Green.
The group is made up of locals Tim Moore, Chris Rhein, and Max Sauer. All three members have been previously active in the scene, often playing the same bill, but perfect timing brought the boys together to create Starwolf. 2017 is a big year for the band, with Loufest as well as an EP set to be released early 2018.
Prior to Loufest they have only played a few shows, making it an even greater honor to be a part of a major music festival. Starwolf plans to “make love to the entire city of St. Louis” this Saturday on the TuneSpeak BMI Stage from 4:00 to 5:00 PM. Make sure to check out their Spotify channel at the bottom of the page.
Starwolf is joining the Loufest lineup alongside some amazing national acts including Spoon, Weezer, Snoop Dogg, and more. You can still snag your passes to the fest on their website, as well as at the on site box office during the fest.
