HistoryEdit

Jordan Cook was raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.[1][4] By age 15, he had a blues rock trio which performed at Switzerland's Montreux Jazz Festival,[4] and in 2010, he recorded an album under his own name, entitled Seven Deadly Sins, containing heavy rock songs but still blues influenced, including some songs he played or re-recorded later under the Reignwolf name (Electric Love and Lonely Sunday).[5]

Around 2012, Cook moved to Seattle and adopted the Reignwolf moniker. Cook's first official show under the new name was at The Sunset Tavern in Ballard, Washington, with a new band featuring Joseph Braley and David "Stitch" Rapaport.[4] Cook performs as both a one-man band accompanying his guitar with a kick drum,[6] and with Rapaport and Braley.[4]

Reignwolf appeared in the episode "What Would Phil Do?" of Cameron Crowe's Showtime series Roadies.[7]

Reignwolf was declared one of "10 New Artists You Need to Know" by Rolling Stone in January 2014.[8][9][10]

Reignwolf's single, "Are You Satisfied", plays over the closing credits of the pilot episode of the HBO series, "The Leftovers".

Released February 1, 2019, "Black and Red" was the first single from Reignwolf's debut album, Hear Me Out, released on March 1, 2019.[11] Reignwolf will be opening for The Who on selected dates on the latter's 2019 fall tour of America.
