About Sea Wolf
About Sea Wolf
Alex Brown Church is a West Coast native, NYU film school graduate, once lived in France, spent time in Montreal, and is a man who has infused all of these experiences into much of his music.
Now at the helm of a band dubbed Sea Wolf, Brown's experiences growing up in a non-traditional family led to a non-traditional way of life. He was raised with an everlasting appreciation for travel and the arts, spending his early years in California before living in a tent in the French countryside and taking time to travel Europe before moving back to the States. While his music first gravitated toward hip-hop and indie-rock, his studies in New York City began to heavily influence his work.
It was Church's interest in film and music that ultimately led him to Los Angeles, where he met Brian Canning and Steven Scott. They became his bandmates in an outfit called Irving, but it lasted only two years before Church turned his attention to the side project that ultimately became Sea Wolf (named for the Jack London epic).
With a rotating ensemble of musicians, Sea Wolf inked a record deal in 2007 and released the EP "Get to To The River Before It Runs Too Low." It was followed by the full-length "Leaves in the River," which hit No. 24 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. It was followed by three more albums, including the most recent "Song Spells, No. 1: Cedarsmoke," which was self-released on July 15, 2014. Though not officially recognized as a Sea Wolf 'album,' it is made up of a series of non-studio albums written and recorded over a four-month period.
