Reignwolf, aka Jordan Cook, is a local blues-metal master who has been making lots of noise lately. He wowed the crowd at The West’s debut a few months back, played an impressive set at Easy Street Records in West Seattle during Record Store Day and recently dropped by Jet City Stream for a searing in-studio performance (which you can give a listen to in the sidebar on the right of the page).

So just  how good is Reignwolf? He’s good enough to get the attention of some pretty big names in local music in Soundgarden’s Ben Shepard and Matt Cameron as well as former Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain. Reignwolf is currently working on an EP he hopes to have available before his next local performance, which will be the Gorge Amphitheatre this Memorial Day weekend during Sasquatch!, and all three of the established former gungers have spent time in the studio with him.  So now would be a good time to hop on board the Reignwolf bandwagon if you aren’t already aboard.
