Ira Wolf, ‘Some Days’ [Exclusive Premiere]
Nashville-based singer-songwriter Ira Wolf is premiering her new song “Some Days” exclusively for readers of The Boot. Readers can press play below to listen.
Wolf wrote “Some Days” after three years of full-time touring. The song reflects on the experiences she had while on the road.
“Life on the road is one of the most exhilarating and rewarding experiences I've known, but it comes with its share of struggles,” Wolf tells The Boot. “The first two years of touring were especially hard, and there were countless nights that I considered quitting, but then there would be just one magical show that kept pushing me on. Those fleeting nights of inspiration brought this song to life during a particularly tough run.”
Born in Montana and educated at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, Mass., Wolf's sonic sensibilities veer heavily into folk and Americana territory, in the vein of Gillian Welch. As the inspiration for "Some Days" suggests, she has been a true road warrior over these past three years, hitting stages in the United States, New Zealand, Scandinavia and Southeast Asia.
On Sept. 7, Wolf will release her third full-length album, titled The Closest Thing to Home. "Some Days" appears on the project. Readers can visit IraWolfMusic.com to learn more.
