Burlap Wolf King, is the vessel of song of South Dakota based singer/songwriter, Thomas Hentges. Hentges performs solo as well as with band, both under the Burlap Wolf King moniker. Throughout 10 active years, BWK has seen a rotating cast of characters. 2009’s full length LP “The Middle” was followed up by 2013’s live and acoustic-leaning “BWK” EP. Now back with a decidedly solidified six-piece lineup, Hentges and company are stronger than ever. BWK’s 2017 full-length offering, “Bitter Honey”, is highlighted by a distinct leap forward in songwriting & style, all the while showcasing this new outfit’s prowess and versatility both live and in the studio.
