Last updated: 06/26/2012 11:00:00 AM
Brothers, recording artists and actors Nat and Alex Wolff were destined to be stars from the very beginning of their lives, and they have the resume to prove it. “Black Sheep,” their very first album as Nat & Alex Wolff, was produced by Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Faith No More, O.A.R., The Replacements) and shows these two coming into their own with serious musical chops and the songwriting skills to back them. The album was released October 11, 2011 on SaddleUp Records via RED Distribution.
“Black Sheep” was written entirely by Nat and Alex and is step in a different, more sophisticated direction for the duo as evidenced by the release of the first two singles, “Thump Thump Thump” and “Maybe.” The two have cited their major influences for the album as Bob Dylan, Green Day, The Velvet Underground, and The Rolling Stones. It’s evident in this release and in their influences that these brothers have done much growing up in the years since their last album alongside their fanbase, allowing them to continually remain relevant without being forced to reinvent themselves.
After the successful multi-year run on Nickelodeon, two full-length albums, a DVD, cross-country touring and appearances on ABC’s Good Morning America and The View, the brothers were ready to shed their old title and graduate to the next level, and Nat & Alex Wolff was born. The talented duo has since traversed the country, playing everywhere from Pop-Con 2010 alongside Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez to New York’s 2010 Earth Day concert. For the past two years, the brothers have been hard at work on their first album as Nat & Alex Wolff. Recorded in LA and New York over several weeks in 2009 and 2010, the album, titled “Black Sheep,” released on October 11, 2011.
Although several years have passed between the release of “Black Sheep” and the finale of “The Naked Brothers Band,” Nat & Alex Wolff have done anything but relax. Aside from writing and recording “Black Sheep,” the brothers have kept busy with acting roles; most recently Nat filmed roles in the upcoming movies New Years Eve and Peace, Love and Misunderstanding, while Alex appeared on episodes of hit TV shows Monk and In Treatment, as well as in the Fall Out Boy video for “The Take Over, The Break’s Over.” Additionally, Alex wrote and both boys starred in the 2010 play What Would Woody Do? at New York’s Flea Theater.
