PJ Wolf finds bios either make him sound cooler than he is, or alternatively; in trying to achieve exactly that end, far less cool than he'd like people to imagine him. That being said…
Drawing on an eclectic range of musical influences from Erik Satie to Bob Dylan, PJ Wolf explores the beautiful, the terrible and the profound through his unique alt-pop sound.
In 2008 PJ was a winner of the triple J unearthed Top Song competition. His winning track was described on the Unearthed website as:
“… indie pop… while still being serious. And Seriously Good. The quirky instrumentation and lush harmonies make PJ's winning track "Skin And Bone" a standout winner”
This win came after a number of his demo’s were picked up and played on the station. Just prior to receiving the Triple J honour PJ was awarded a grant from the Foundation for Young Australians to help produce his current EP Arcadia Street, an collection of pop songs about death.
For years we've loved his last album, Storms Dreams and Flying Machines, and the new Arcadia Street is beautiful.
Fifteen years ago I loved Cafe of Broken Dreams and Rebirth of the Cool. But that was after Dorian turned to writing, and I never thought I’d get to see him sing. Now he’s recorded his fifth album, and he’s launching it for us. Thanks Dorian!
A rare Sydney performance from composer-singer-pianist Dorian Mode and his swinging trio (EOS regular Jono Brown on Bass and Nic Cecire on Drums). Dorian peppers his concerts with funny surreal yarns which accompany his songs, along with beatnik readings from his laugh-out-loud novels. His recent CD earned two ABC Radio awards and his books are bestsellers both here and in Europe.
