Track List

Wolf van Elfmand makes new folk & strange country music. Equal parts satire and social awareness, his songs explore our present-day life and times while paying homage to American classics such as Randy Newman and Mississippi John Hurt. His upcoming release, Music for Minors (Ages 3 to 300), is available everywhere on December 7, 2019

"There’s a cowboy walking around Denver. He wants to know what this whole “yoga” thing is about. He’s flexible and he’s about to get twisted up in downward dog. One hopes his spurs don’t end up in the wrong place. 

 

Wolf Van Elfmand’s latest release “Music for Minors (ages 3 - 300)” follows beloved characters like the "Flexible Cowboy Man" and "Mr. Eat" as they blunder through the world, arriving at hilariously profound conclusions as they go. A reflection of Van Elfmand’s deft lyrical craftsmanship, “Music for Minors” is a kid-friendly album that big kids who identify as adults will find to be a refreshing mix of clever satire and heartfelt truths. The songs travel along the terrain of classic country music motifs, but as the album unfolds Van Elfmand shows he isn’t afraid to experiment, to poke fun at himself, and generously slips nuggets of gold inside every joke. 

 

A staple in the Denver music scene, sharing stages with artists like Pokey Lafarge, Charlie Parr, Dead Horses and hosting community concert series in both Denver (Turf Club Denver) and Fort Collins (Olde Town Folkways), Van Elfmand’s approach to music is one of collaboration, deeply rooted in music as a healing force for all human beings, no matter their age. 

 

Music as therapy is an easy thing to say and a whole other thing to put into practice. When Wolf isn’t performing in Denver or touring across the country, he works as a music therapist. He explains that “As music therapist I'm with kids every working day. Though we always do the classics like "You Are My Sunshine", I wanted to put some original tunes in the hat.” While Van Elfmand didn’t set out to “heal” anyone with these songs, he succeeds in altering the mood, and bringing out a smile to those who listen."
