Peter Wolf

For some, Peter Wolf is the energetic lead singer of a handful of major hits for The J. Geils Band–“Centerfold,” “Freeze Frame,” and “Love Stinks.” For others, he’s the genre-spanning solo artist whose 2002 album “Sleepless”, was ranked among its 500 Greatest Albums of All Time by Rolling Stone. Yet those highlights barely scratch the biographical surface of a man who became friends with blues greats Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker; as a child painted in the studio of Norman Rockwell; as a student at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston roomed with director David Lynch; was the founding program director and disc jockey at Boston’s acclaimed FM station WBCN; and led a band for which U2 was once the opening act. “Early in my life I committed myself to two lovers–music and painting,” says Wolf “and each feeds the other. I’m the kind of guy who usually sees his glass as half-empty, but it’s full when I’m doing work, whether music or art, that’s worthwhile, that touches that spark of creation. To give birth to music, to hear it come alive, brings meaning to my life and hopefully that music inspires others.”
