King and Howlin' Wolf
. Trevor's most recent album, "Calling Nashville" has received international acclaim.

il Lupo is Italian for "wolf" and is a subtle homage to Mississippi-born blues legend Chester Arthur Burnett, best known as Howlin' Wolf
It's also a bit of an homage to Chicago blues legend Howlin' Wolf
. He was huge in the blues movement in Chicago and was a big influence of the Rolling Stones, who was another one of our influences in our new sound.

and Muddy Waters.
