Silver Wolf Band


Silver Wolf Band is a trio from Goose Bay, Labrador, consisting of Jackman brothers, Jamie and Justin, and their friend Matthew Barrett. They perform original folk-rock songs that feature piano quite prominently and lyrics that talk about the place they call home.   
The band is working on its first full-length album to be released in June of 2018, with support from the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council, to follow up their 7-Song EP Jam the Blues. Their sophomore offering will demonstrate a marked maturity in song writing that is more reflective of their indigenous roots.
Silver Wolf Band and its members have played festivals, conferences, and shows throughout Atlantic Canada like the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival and ECMAs.  Jam the Blues was nominated for Pop Recording of the Year by Music PEI and Matthew Barrett was nominated twice by Musi NL for Music Educator of the Year.
