Dear microcultivators,

Thanks for taking part in this project and preordering the album.
Despite of it, we'll be a bit short on our initially planned budget. But, well, this album being a masterpiece, we'll release it anyhow and manufacture a vinyl and a CD. We'll do a limited edition that will be even more limited.

Vinyls and CD's manufacturing will be launched very soon.
You'll get them in November if everything goes well. Digital download of the album is available on your account.

Next step will be to discuss shows. More news soon hopefully.

Thanks again

Jean-Charles, pour Microcultures

Hello all!

I'm working with French record label Microcultures and together we have set up a pre-order campaign for my new record "Daughter of the Sea" which will be releasing all over France on vinyl this September. 

The aim of our campaign is to raise funds for the vinyl limited edition to be made & also a limited run of CD's... I'm very proud of this album, I recorded it last May on the East coast of Ireland with my good friend and producer Darragh Nolan

We are also planning a September French tour around the release. I'm going to be collaborating with some great French artists for the tour, drummer Dimitri Dedonder will be joining me, and hopefully a few more surprises. The first show has already been booked in Angers at Un Brin Folk, Sept 8th.

Looking forward to see everyone, abrazos! Rey (House of Wolves)

Un loup dans notre bergerie

C'est le toujours très avisé Vincent Théval (journaliste musical dont la curiosité et l'inspiration ne connaissent jamais la crise) qui a attiré notre attention sur les émouvantes chansons de House of Wolves et encouragé une rencontre avec Rey Villalobos. Dont acte. La chose s'est faite dans un café du 10ème arrondissement de Paris. Quelques jours plus tard, House of Wolves se produisait à Paris avec notre poulain Manolo Redondo. Il ne fallait peut-être pas plus que ces deux ou trois signes pour poser ici les fondements d'une belle histoire à venir, que les nouveaux morceaux d'House of Wolves ont achevé de rendre inéluctable. 

Comme d'habitude, on pense que cette histoire ne sera que plus belle si vous êtes aux (pré)commandes. Nous sommes donc très heureux de vous convier à l'éclosion de ce merveilleux nouveau chapitre dans l'histoire du folk contemporain : une sortie d'album et une petite tournée française sont en jeu.

Vous reconnaîtrez je pense quelques-unes de nos obsessions musicales... les arpèges acoustiques, les mélodies aériennes, la mélancolie en guise de ligne directrice esthétique. Souhaitons que vous en soyez pareillement subjugués.

A lone wolf & California native

Rey Villalobos records under the moniker “House of Wolves”, taken from the literal translation of his family name. The last few years Villalobos has spent much of his time touring Europe with the release of his debut album Fold in the Wind on French label Fargo Records.


Falling in love with Chopin nocturnes was Villalobos’ first musical love. Villalobos began studying classical piano as a kid, but now composes most of his music on the acoustic guitar: "the guitar for me is more intuitive, all I see is a piece of wood with marks, whereas the piano is far more familiar... knowing where each note is gets in the way of writing instinctively.”  

“The songwriting is very strong, cinematic even. Rey has a knack for mise-en-scène - one that’s romantic and shot like a French New Wave film.” - YVYNYL


“House of Wolves mysterious beauty and pure honesty is impossible to dislike” - NO FEAR OF POP

House of Wolves returns

This spring, House of Wolves returns with a new LP "Daughter Of The Sea", an 8 song solo record of hauntingly intimate unreserved songs. Produced and mixed by Darragh Nolan (Asta Kalapa) at his studio on the east coast of Ireland, the album is densely overcast with warm, lo-fi acoustic guitar, vintage grand piano, laid-back drums & mellotrons dusted throughout.


"House of Wolves (aka Rey Villalobos) shows that it only takes one guitar and one person to produce some of the most beautiful music to appear in 2015 thus far." - The 405 


"so strikingly magnetic is down to the exhaustive power that sits at the heart of ‘House Of Wolves" - Gold Flake Paint
