Known to many as a female Leonard Cohen – poetic, meditative, and reclusive - Wolf Larsen channels a deep well of emotion into her songs about hope, prayer, love, death, God, and Jedi princess warriors.
Her rare live shows are known for transforming any noisy barroom scene into a quiet Sunday evening vespers. Formerly based in San Francisco, she is now rumored to have taken up residence in Tucson, Arizona.
"In a world of slightly disposable music, this one is sticking with me for a long while." ~Bob Boilen, NPR Music - All Songs Considered
"Perfectly written, arranged and produced. This album induces tears, and touches that really vulnerable human part of us all." ~Nisan Perera, The Citrus Report
"If seeing Wolf perform live is scripture, Quiet at the Kitchen Door is a canon of Renaissance paintings." ~ Shareef Ali, No Gods Before Music

The Girl Effect:
(Note from Wolf)
I believe with my whole heart that swiftest and most powerful way to help the world is to lift up women.
15% of all proceeds generated from the exemplary Wolf fanbase - through iTunes (itun.es/i6JC3nw
), record sales on this site and merchandise - are donated directly to organizations like The Girl Effect, Chime for Change and Kiva's JoinFite.
The enthusiasm my friends and family and fans have shown to invest in this female songwriter, which then ripples out to invest in other women around the world, who are then able to invest in themselves and their families and their communities:
It is the definition of The Girl Effect.
So thank you for being part of our ripple.
