George Wolf is an accomplished songwriter, bassist and singer, fronting his own band LONEWOLF as well as playing bass for various Canadian recording artists.
Raised in Antigonish, NS, he played his first professional gig at age 9, singing backup and playing ukulele for his mom, well known Canadian singer/songwriter Lynda Wolf (Koile). At age 14 he picked up the bass guitar, and never looked back. Moving to Toronto after high school, he soon became a regular on the bar circuit as bassist for indie artist Tom Barlow, as well as stints with the Motor City Bandits in the R&B scene. In 1991, he travelled with Barlow to mainland China as part of a cultural exchange, the first to occur post-Tiananmen Square. In 1993, he moved to Vancouver, BC to tour with country artist Brent Lee.
In 1998, he joined the Aaron Pritchett band, playing on their first album and penning Aaron’s first radio single, “Heart like a Hurricane” (nominated for Single and SOCAN Song of the Year). Shortly after the radio success, he started his own band (Lonewolf), which became a staple on the BC Country scene.
He has worked with award winning artists such as Aaron Pritchett, Brent Lee, Kenny Hess, Damian Marshall, Ken McCoy, Tom Barlow and many others. He has been nominated for multiple BC Country Music Association awards, including Songwriter and Single of the Year (for Heart like a Hurricane), Gaylord Wood Traditional Artist, and Mike Norman All Star Band (Bass). For six years running, he was bassist in the BCCMA Country Club Band of the Year (5 years with Brent Lee, and one year with Aaron Pritchett).
In December of 2018, he returned to his home province of Nova Scotia to pursue more musical opportunities. He has released an original album under his band name “LONEWOLF”, and is currently working on more original material, as well as establishing himself as a highly sought after session/live bassist.
