Charlie comments on the 2015 release: “Making this album was a very intense process and unlike anything I’d ever done before, I was really pushed to my limits musically, creatively, mentally, financially, and physically making it. I’m really excited about what we created and for people to hear it and hopefully enjoy it.”

ABOUT THE SONG:
“For me, the song “Upswing” has a lot to do with growing up and maturing so for this video we went with a wolf motif. This video explores the life of a wolf, which is something I am intimately familiar with.”
– Charlie Wolf
ABOUT CHARLIE WOLF & THE SMALL CALAMITIES:
Charlie Wolf & The Small Calamities are an indie rock band led by Texas-based singer/ songwriter Charlie Wolf. His unique observational storytelling style was inspired by folk music but he allowed rock and pop to define his energy and upbeat spirit. By turning everyday thoughts into compelling lyric ideas, he creates what has been called ‘a wry and catchy commentary’ and ‘observational folk pop’. This blend of genres makes for a very special approach to song-writing, as every track feels catchy and accessible, yet deep and thought-provoking all at once. His sound borrows from the roots of contemporary music to forge a compelling narrative that echoes the work of bands such as The Mountain Goats, The Weakerthans, Counting Crows or Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers as he finds beauty in the fragmentation of every day life. He is currently releasing a series of music videos and singles from his new album Angels & Commerce.
