Bands You Need to Know: The Native Howl

The Native Howl

Folk-rock bandits, The Native Howl formed less than 2 years ago when singer-songwriters Jake Sawicki and Alex Holycross finally joined forces after years of making music in close proximity to one another. Since coming together the duo have self-released The Revolution’s Dead EP, and used their combined business acumen to launch Clean As Dirt Records, out of Leonard Michigan’s CAD Studios.

In the year that followed, the group proceeded to play stages throughout Michigan and began writing and recording their debut full-length album, Inukshuk, due for release by early October. An Inukshuk is an Inuit cultural symbol made up of a pile of unworked stones often used to designate safe travel passages.

This Wednesday, June 30, you’ll be able to see The Native Howl perform two 50-minute sets at Detroit’s Campus Martius as part of the Lunchtime Concert Series hosted by 93.9 The River. The guys will be handing out demos of Inukshuk with purchase of anything from their merch table.

You can get your hands on The Revolution’s Dead at The Native Howl’s bandcamp, and stream the music video No Chance (For My Soul), below:
