    "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

Gabled Roofs

gabled roofs in the neighborhood
understand why I’m no good
pointed faces stare and accuse
white paint can’t be amused

transgressions filed in the lobe on the right
in the attic with a censor flashlight
so strange on a street so straight
brains battered by the garden gate

cloven hooves on the family pet
I’ve got a dream that I can’t forget
spattered curtain stashed in the can
muddy footprints on the ceiling fan

blood dripping from the battle fought
you brief candle me damn spot
I hear the echo of the sliding grate
and the padlock on the garden gate


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