Bio

Adelaide’s Wolfjay is energetic and sincere, melding electronic and indie-rock influences into euphoric pop music that’d be right at home over the credits of your favourite coming-of-age film.

Described by Dom Alessio (Triple J) as “the soundtrack to falling in love in a dream”, Wolfjay’s music soars further with every release and is bound to make you smile. His latest track ‘She Calls To Me’ has been described as “Like getting a group hug from a pod of whales” (Nat Tencic, Triple J Unearthed) and “warm, romantic, and loved-up” (Hayden Davies, Pilerats)

He released his debut EP ‘Formative Years’ in 2017, and followed it up quickly with two impressive singles this year that paved the way for him supporting international and national artists, and playing shows interstate. Accompanied by his live band, Wolfjay’s live sets are warm, familiar, and exhilarating, like a hug from your best friend at a house party.
