Alex Brown Church, better known as Sea Wolf, is returning to Utah just a few months after his second trip to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, where he performed two sets at the ASCAP Music CafÃ©.
This time around, he was able to spend some time at the festival, unlike the first time, when he flew in and out in a single day. "It was really, really fun," Church said in a phone interview. "This time I had some friends there, and was able to see a film."
Church's friends came from the film school at New York University, which Church also attended as a film school student before turning his focus toward his brand of indie-folk that sounds, well, cinematic in its well-defined sense of space and character.
"There are a lot of parallels between creating a film and creating music," he said. "Right now, I'm just concentrating on music."
After moving to Montreal "for a girl," Church returned to his Los Angeles home studio to write, record and produce 2012's "Old World Romance," which is inspired more by the stories of John Steinbeck and Jack London than any other music any one else is making right now.
