It takes you on a downright honest self discovery. It is a superior crafted piece of musical autobiography with an alluring cover.
This record reflects a prominent musical maturity and richness in sound Geri X didn’t focus on earlier. Work is the Wolf is the inherent ending of intense and exhausting touring and remarkable songwriting, combined with an “I’m better off” outlook on life. Everything in it: from the running order of songs to the artwork – delivers “a close to flawless album” (Skope Magazine). It is truly that good.
About Ger X:
Bulgarian-born Geri X is a composer, a musician and a singer hard to put a label on. Fans and critics spotted it from the moment she broke onto theTampa Bay Music Scene: Geri is an artist with a singular sound you have not heard before. One can see it in the way she confidently plays her Babicz guitar, eyes half open and soul pouring out with a rich, crisp and mesmerizing voice.
What started with a classical training in piano, guitar and voice, evolving out of a broad and eclectic blend of influences, has become wonderfully her own. In the process of sharing her songs, Geri bares her soul to ease the audience’s emotions. It is the strength of the voice and the charge to each word that draws them to a halt. Geri X is a poet, rebel, and a singer with a voice that is demanding to be heard. She carries the intensity of a Mike Tyson punch with the serene beauty of one of the best female vocalists of this era (L.A. Times)
She has received countless accolades for her work, including Creative Loafing’s Best Singer Songwriter for 2 years in a row, as well as playing Summerfest and Steel Bridge Song Festival in the last few years.
Aside from being a workaholic and an alluring performer, often carrying out few shows in a day, Geri is a prolific songwriter. This is a fundamental quality, which combined with her work ethic and the gift of sharing make her a true artist: one you can connect to.
Whether with a full band or on stage with just a guitar, she is simply captivating.
One only needs to experience it.
