Torii Wolf believes in music’s power to transcend. When people hear Wolf’s arrestingly moving voice and wide-ranging musical style, they immediately drop into the emotion of the song and connect on levels that transcend genre, gender, time, and space. For Wolf, a New Yorker now based in LA, songwriting is a full-body experience. “I feel a song forming in my whole body; the urge to express is totally physical.” Wolf’s songs start from an emotional place. They drop into that emotional space, express it musically, and write lyrics by finding words for feelings. Their live performance is an electrifying culmination of all that feeling and emotion. “I like how music can be a bridge to the spiritual world,” says Wolf. “I want to use my music to build a safe space for people to feel.” To feel anything—Music has a power to bring all feelings forward in a safe way.
