Lazar Wolf is a melodic rock quartet hailing from the Kansas City, Missouri area. Beginning as merely a creative outlet in 2010, Lazar Wolf has transformed into a full fledged rock endeavor of four very different musicians with an even wider range of backgrounds and influences from pop to metal.

Comprised of Aaron Smith (vocals/guitar), Steve Lee (guitar/backing vocals), Josiah Trotter (bass) and Spencer Chapin (drums), Lazar Wolf creates a layered soundscape of balanced refinement and rawness. A driving rhythm section is the backbone to swooping guitar lines and melodic vocals which culminate into an alternative rock sound that is reminiscent of Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World, Biffy Clyro and more.

March/April 2017 will see the release of their debut, “self-titled” full length album that was produced and recorded by Josh Barber (Norma Jean, Hit the Lights, Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko, War of Ages, etc.) This album was recorded at Pachyderm Studios in Minnesota and Josh Barber’s personal studio in Kansas City and it showcases the melodic songwriting and driving power that sums up Lazar Wolf. 

The goal of Lazar Wolf is to create memorable and timeless songs while bringing a positive message of hope.
