Biography

Company of Wolves was formed in 1989 and consisted of New York musicians Kyf Brewer (singer/songwriter, formerly of The Ravyns), Steven Conte (guitar/songwriter, formerly with Glen Burtnick), John Conte (bass/songwriter), and Frankie LaRocka (drums, formerly with Bryan Adams, John Waite, David Johansen).

The Wolves were signed to Mercury/Polygram in the same year, and produced three AOR charting singles, (Call of the Wild, The Distance, Hangin¹ By a Thread), with their eponymous debut release in 1990. Rave reviews from every major rock publication followed quickly.

The group toured the US relentlessly, sharing bills with everyone from Richard Marx to L.A. Guns, and released two videos to MTV, ³Call of the Wild², and ³The Distance².

Company of Wolves² eventually sold over 100,000 units with very little company support, before going out of print in 1993.

The group members soon fell into successful solo careers, until in 1998, popular demand convinced them to release ³Shakers & Tamborines², a collection of demo recordings made prior to their industry signing.

Year 2001 marked the release of ³Steryl Spycase² on the Ryf imprint. ³Spycase² is the first new music from the writing force of Conte/Brewer/Conte since their debut. It defines their musical backgrounds and tastes, and showed the world that these versatile writers and musicians were more than just a ³hair² band.

Discography and album notes can be found at www.kyf.com, under the ³discography² heading.

    Great band that should have gotten more support from the label. I would like to see them come back now with more bands releasing on their own.
