Album Notes
The Among Wolves story started in Philadelphia in winter 2001 with founder Billy Tiedeken, aka Haywood. Along with the help of his friend and ex-member Matt Tozer, Haywood started recording experimental lo-fi folk songs with chaotic sonic textures. After moving to Baltimore in early 2004 he met up with an old friend, Jimmy Cahill, also from Philadelphia. Right away the two began writing and recording songs in a small Baltimore apartment on Saint Paul Street.

Apartment living kept the music they were creating on the quieter acoustic side, and the desire to create interesting but accessible music pushed them to become more creative with sounds and production ideas. Using instruments like the theremin, short wave radios, old casio keyboards, toys, and synthesizers, the sound became more than just quiet indie folk. In a span of about nine months they recorded over 70 songs and were getting a hundred plus plays a day on various websites.

This collaboration caught the attention of multi-instrumentalist/producer Jason Butcher and bassist/drummer Dave Godman. When their band, Chivalry, fell apart, the two joined Among Wolves. With this new addition, the band began to add Beach Boys/Beatlesque harmonies, rock like The Who, and make beautiful, piercing noise like The Flaming Lips. On the flipside, they can still strip it all down and be a great country roots band using instruments such as upright bass, banjo, and lap steel.

The music of Among Wolves is deeply personal, expressing life experiences through stories and characters that come to life through their songs. The band recorded the songs on their Beechfields debut (due this summer) in a few days in a basement studio, with the help of many bottles of whiskey. For fans of The Beach Boys, Flaming Lips, Townes Van Zandt, Neil Young, Will Oldham, Gram Parsons, and Guided By Voices.
