Hailing from the mountains of Montana, and making a home in Nashville, TN, Ira Wolf's music and writing is vulnerable, honest, and "delightfully subtle."  With three studio albums to share, Ira has performed on stages across the US, the UK, Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia since she began touring in 2014. She draws from personal experience, and connects on an intimate level with her audience through her honest lyrics and melancholy vocals. With roots in folk, americana and bluegrass genres, Ira has found a unique sound that resonates with an eclectic listening crowd. 

A former Berklee College of Music student, Ira has been recognized for her lyrical content and vocal capabilities in numerous festivals and songwriting contests including Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase, Great American Song Contest, International Songwriting Competition, Gate City Music Festival Songwriting Contest, CT Folk Festival Songwriter Competition, Blast on the Bay Songwriter Contest, and Eddie Owen's Open Mic Shootout, among others. She was also named one of Spotify's 'Best of Folk/Americana 2016' artists. 

Along with her talent, Ira has received recognition for her fearless dedication to a full-time touring schedule as a soloist. As she has continued living on the road throughout the past three years, her music and lifestyle have been featured in blogs such as She-Explores 'Women on the Road', as well as Sonicbids 'Success Stories'. 

Although Ira continues to make Nashville her home-base, she maintains a life on the road. In 2016 she finished a five month run called "The GoWesty Tour" to promote her sophomore album, 'Honest'. She spent the majority of 2017 in the studio, working on her highly anticipated third album 'The Closest Thing To Home', which was released September 9th, 2017 and is currently available on all major music platforms. 

Ira has no plans to slow down anytime soon and continues and writing and performing both inside the states and overseas.
