Raised in the mountains of Montana and making a home on the road, Ira Wolf’s music and writing are vulnerably honest as she explores heartache, homesickness, and the highs and lows of an unconventional wandering lifestyle. She draws from personal experience and connects on an intimate level with her audience through her truthful lyrics and melancholy vocals.
Since she began touring in 2014, Ira has earned more than 100 million plays on Spotify, performed across six continents, and shared stages with artists such as Penny and Sparrow, Dead Man Winter, Adeem the Artist, and Andrea von Kampen. She’s been featured for her songwriting and vocal style at Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Kerrville Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Americanafest, and Midwest Music Fest, and continues to travel the U.S. while living full time in a camper van.
After releasing her third album, The Closest Thing to Home, Ira took a step away from music to focus on her mental health and other passions. Ira recently finished recording her highly-anticipated fourth studio album, (expected in fall of 2023), and plans to continue touring both nationally and internationally around its release.
Travis Ehrenstrom will be opening the night. Travis Ehrenstrom’s musical journey began in rural Central Oregon, where he honed his songwriting skills inspired by the likes of Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, Bill Withers, and Bob Dylan. From teaching himself to play guitar at age 14 to recording his first album at Santa Cruz’s Ridgetop Sound Studios, Travis wasted no time in developing himself as an artist.
Travis’s music has taken him across the country, opening for renowned acts like the Blind Boys of Alabama and performing at venues from the Santa Monica Pier Folk Festival to North Park University in Chicago. He toured nationally as a solo artist before joining Noah Gundersen and the Courage, with whom he opened for Josh Ritter and Kimya Dawson.
After taking time away from music, Travis returned in 2017 with a new six-piece band (TEB) and a fresh focus on a jam/fusion-style sound. Their debut album, Something on the Surface, was released to critical acclaim and named one of the year’s top releases by multiple media outlets.
Travis’s passion for Americana music and the folk tradition led him to team up with producer Casey Parnell in 2018 to record the Northwest Americana EP. And in 2019, he embarked on a creative arts project with his wife, “Our Creative States,” traveling across the United States and writing, recording, and releasing songs from every state they visited.
Travis Ehrenstrom’s latest album from TEB, “Hollinshead,” showcases his musical versatility and growth as an artist. Recorded and self-produced with his six-piece band, TEB, the album fuses rock, funk, jazz, and blues elements to create a wholly unique and captivating sound.
With “Hollinshead,” Travis Ehrenstrom has solidified his place as a boundary-pushing musician unafraid to experiment with new sounds and styles. The album is a testament to his growth as an artist and his unwavering commitment to creating compelling and innovative music.
