The Lone Wolf Project's most recent album, Old Words, New Chapters.
Phillip Nathaniel Freeman's Lone Wolf Project started back in 2006 when he was a senior in high school and has found him wandering onto various stages from Boston to New Orleans. He grew up around classical music with parents who were church musicians and found his way into rock music from his cousins who were both in rock bands. Not long before starting The Lone Wolf Project, Freeman got interested in early 20th century blues and Americana, and his influences include Muddy Waters, Lead Belly and Tom Waits.
His latest album, "Old Words, New Chapters", was released this past October. Freeman's words deal frequently with ideas of inner struggle, of a war within one's self. "Some of the songs on the album are extremely vehement," he says, "and stem from bitter, bitter anger that I've felt compelled to control. At the same time, there's an underlying faith that's unexplainable."
And it's through his sometimes-sunny and sometimes-cloudy world of music and words the that the Lone Wolf wanders to discover himself. "The first step to being true to yourself is trying to discover what that "self" is, and...this music, if anything it's helping me try to understand myself."
