    "On this latest album, the songwriters are on top of their game influenced by folk, psych, pop, jazz and beyond yet retaining a sonic framework that ties every tune together wonderfully, each song perfectly formed and a delight for the ears. These influences though are just that, the band has their own identity, they cannot sound any other way, this is Wolverton, beautiful, great conversationalist and the perfect date for a summer afternoon."

    --- Simon Lewis, Terrascope

    "contagious fun...mescaline in the pocket."

    --- James Killen, Houston Music Review

    "Approaching their songwriting with the carefree spirit of kids on a playground, the three core members (vocalist and keys player Kate Terrell, guitarist and singer Hills Snyder, and vocalist Caralyn Snyder) all take turns leading listeners through the weird and twisting experimental folk journey of Wizard Land."

    --- Chris Conde, San Antonio Current

    "Wizard Land is the latest album by eclectic Texas based band Wolverton. Their brand of folk rock has elements of chamber pop, and sneaking cabaret/noir vibrations, especially in the dramatic delivery of the dual vocals and kaleidoscopic lyrical imagery. A basic, central sound of piano, percussion and guitar is fleshed out here and there by strings, banjo, theremin and other production touches. Wolverton's musical influences seem to range wide, from roots rock and americana to broadway-style show tunes and classical flourishes."

    --- Josh Moss, The Modern Folk Music of America

Caralyn Snyder words / Hills Snyder music


Closed Cherry Stands

talking cherry stands and cider
eases the constant pull of buzzards bold
far in horizon circle higher
holding our breathing while the air grows old

hold on to fathoms burrowing deep
as from the burnt peaks sorrow seeps

as cornfields overtake thoughts of pine and rust
horizon’s reign becomes that of dust
holding onto that hidden moon of trust
we simple say and do that which we must

quickly land becomes barren to the soul
lost to the pull of ponderosa pines

horizons lay muddy in this flattening bowl
of lingering passages uneven lines

talking cherry stands and cider
eases the constant pull of buzzards bold


from Wizard Land, released May 20, 2017
Caralyn: vocals; Hills: vocals, guitar; Kate: vocals, keys; Joe: bass, drums
