“Five Minutes With” Blues Rock Band A Day as Wolves

A Day as Wolves is the brain child of brothers Andrew and Kyle Eskesen. Based in Calgary Alberta, A Day as Wolves initially stemmed from writing sessions Andrew and Kyle had to pass the time in endless Alberta winters. Their twangy undertones, fuzzed out guitar riffs, and heavy drums combined with soulful vocals about love, women, and drunken nights create the blues rock sound that is A Day as Wolves. 

In 2014, A Day as Wolves won the coveted X 929.9 Xposure Contest that gave the group radio play, a slot at 2014’s X-Fest (featuring Jack White, Artic Monkeys, Cage the Elephant, July Talk, Tegan and Sara, and many more), and gained national attention which ultimately lead to numerous shows across Canada to date.

The self-titled debut LP gained the band momentum and title track “Move To Be Free” has been featured on radio playlists, blogs, magazines, and advertising all over the world.

With a new fire lit inside each of the members, A Day as Wolves looks to continue their success in 2019 with new music, major show announcements, and tour dates.
