Crywolf, otherwise known as Justin Taylor Phillips, is a producer, vocalist, and multi instrumentalist from Los Angeles, CA. Since Crywolf’s conception three years ago, his intimate, melodic, avantgarde releases have garnered their own unique following, with a loyalty rarely seen in the world of electronic music.
His releases are no stranger to commercial success either; met with support from international acts such as Ellie Goulding, Skrillex, Bassnectar and more. His first four EPs all charted in the top 3 on itunes and secured spots on the Billboard charts for over two weeks. His most recent effort, Cataclasm has been hailed as his best work to date, debuting in the top 10 on Billboard electronic, and has been covered by major media outlets such as Billboard, Vice, DJ Magazine, and more.
With over 100 million total plays across online streaming platforms such as Pandora, Soundcloud, Youtube, and Spotify, and a tour for his new LIVE set on the way, 2016 is set to be a huge year for Crywolf.
“Crywolf is the sort of jack of all trades who makes larger than life tracks that are hard to fully experience in one listen… powerful swells of sound that eventually unfold into more ethereal, intricate valleys, offering the listener the sort of 360 experience that makes you feel something real.” – Vice
“Crywolf doesn’t really care what everyone is doing around him. He doesn’t care to bend around a genre. He doesn’t care… at all. He exists in his own bubble, and I think that’s where his subtle brilliance comes from.”
” …so deep and has so much power and emotion behind the tone and lyrics, it’s crazy…I’ve truly never listened to anything quite like it.”
– This Song Slaps
“…one of my favorite new producers…powered tracks with electronic elements that have an amazing sound.”
– This Song Is Sick
