Congratulations to Driftwood Soldier whose new album Stay Ahead of the Wolf is out today. Over the last three months, the inimitably gritty, gutterfolk duo from Philadelphia have released three singles and drawn acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Glide Magazine, Americana Highways and more. Owen Lyman-Schmidt's guttural, gravely voice and raging mandolin growling atop Bobby Szafranski's ominously tempered bass compose the band's distinct sonic-scape, which they skillfully enage to drive tales of injustice with force. Stay Ahead of the Wolf was produced with Erin McKeown, mixed by Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Devil Makes Three, Lucero, Violent Femmes) and mastered by Ryan Schwab (The Districts, Hop Along, Ron Gallo).
