Live Video: Reignwolf at CHBP

When asked about the meaning behind the name Reignwolf in an interview on Luke Burbank’s Too Beautiful To Live podcast, 27-year-old Jordan Cook responded without hesitation: “Just a feeling. It’s just a feeling.” That feeling, whatever it is, is curated by howling, screaming, pounding, shredding, distortion, and sweat, lots of sweat. Often performing as a solo act with only his guitar and a lone kick drum, Reignwolf’s live shows are a true, uninhibited rock and roll spectacle as Cook’s energy pours out on-stage in an unstoppable tidal wave of frantic excitement. Reignwolf stopped by the Barboza stage during this year’s Capitol Hill Block Party for a live KEXP broadcast, and despite the fact it was still “morning” (1:30 p.m.), this show was no exception. Accompanied by a small backing band, Cook tore up the stage, blasting through his five-song set in a genuine fervor, crawling on the ground and climbing on top of drums, showing the audience just exactly what Reignwolf feels like.

Check out Reignwolf’s full performance, broadcast live on KEXP from Barboza during the Capitol Hill Block Party, below:

    Best show I’ve seen in years, and then it got even better upstairs at Neumos. This guy is unreal. Seattle needed this kid, that’s for sure!
