mxdwn.com Premiere: Free Download and Video of Fay Wolf’s “The Thread of the Thing”
Blogcritics Review: "...her songwriting and composition style effortlessly combines storytelling and drama... Though her style is all her own, my ear can't help but compare her to artists as diverse as Florence + The Machine and Tori Amos, who also tell stories beneath melodies." Read Full Review.
AfterEllen.com - New Music Tuesday: "Last week I neglected to include singer/songwriter Fay Wolf's beautifully melodic piano-driven album. This is not what you listen to on a sunny day when all is right with the world - save it for when you're in the mood to emote. If you think I'm kidding, I just realized she has shirts for sale that say, "Fay Wolf Made Me Cry." Hilarious!"
6. MUSIC: Spiders, Fay Wolf; Never Out Of Time, Camille Bloom; Weather, Meshell Ndegeocello; and Get Along, Tegan and Sara
Let’s hear it for these out female singer-songwriters: L.A.-based Wolf imbues her piano-driven songs with melancholy drama on her full-length debut; endorsed by Gibson guitars, Seattleite Bloom pop-rocks with passion on her latest album; Ndegeocello asks “Who’s your daddy?” on a disc full of defiant attitude and deep introspection; and lesbian twins Tegan and Sara present a live CD-DVD set that includes two short documentaries.
Pop Matters Review: "Spiders is a sturdy house which, upon close inspection, reveals exquisite detail and craftsmanship." Read Full Review.
Baltimore OUTloud / Bay Area Reporter: "Actress/comedian and singer/songwriter Fay Wolf’s Spiders weaves a web in which you won’t mind getting tangled. Already a staple on the soundtracks to various TV series, Wolf narrows the focus to herself and her considerable songwriting and singing over the course of the disc’s 11 tracks. Stunning songs such as “The Passing,” “Mine,” “Was,” “In The Way,” “Easy” and “Backstage Girl,” put her in the company of Regina Spektor and Tori Amos without ever compromising her own distinctive musical identity and perspective."

More Quotes From Nice People
"Fay Wolf makes endearing references to her "sad piano songs". But anyone who walks away without a fuller picture of Wolf's music would be simplifying the depths of her talent. ...She lives and breathes the songs as a character in the scenes she crafts."
- Ellen Woloshin, Music Connection
"Wolf's voice is soothing yet haunting and shows a great vocal range. She is a talented piano player who writes unmistakably heartfelt lyrics, which are sincere without going overboard."
-Daniel Kohn, BestNewBands.com
"Wolf will be the first one to tell you, she makes sad music. While the subject matter may be morose, it's showcased beautifully."
