An independent new-folk singer/songwriter, Ira Wolf uses her Americana melodies and honest lyrics to connect on an intimate and vulnerable level with her audience, and is inspired by each new experience her adventurous life has given her. After briefly studying in her home state at the University of Montana and Berklee College of Music in Boston, Ira left school in 2012 in pursuit of something bigger. She traveled for a year, exploring Europe and Australia, writing, recording, and learning about the world and herself. In the summer of 2013, Ira’s journey led her to make a home in Nashville, where she lived in her car for a month until she landed a part-time job as a nanny. After settling in, Ira spent much of her time collaborating with some of Nashville’s top writers and musicians, and set out on her very first tour just two years ago. Following that tour, she worked tirelessly to create and release her debut album, “Fickle Heart,” in September 2014 and began touring full-time. Although she continues to make Nashville her home-base, Ira maintains a life on the road. She is currently touring to promote her sophomore project, “Honest,” released in March.
