Reviews & Quotes
“Forget Michael Bublé and check out this local singer. Wolfe’s album, Weaver of Dreams was released back in December, but these are timeless gems. I can’t quite pin down a comparison for his golden-throated voice — it’s sort of like a silky-smooth jazz angel. With his flawless band and his kd lang-esque version of Stephen Sondheim’s Send in the Clowns, this record is super-romantic dinner and lounge listening.”
