In a way, Joe Wong’s forthcoming album, Nite Creatures, represents the merger of two musical identities he’s cultivated over the years: that of an experimental-leaning drummer who’s variously immersed himself in rock, punk and jazz scenes, and that of an accomplished film and television composer with a strong orchestral bent. The album also marks his debut effort under his own name.

“I definitely thought about considering band names or project names, but I figured my own name is never going to change so I might as well stick with that,” Wong tells American Songwriter in an interview featured below. “And this record is technically influenced by almost 20 years’ experience as a film composer in that it has pretty involved orchestral arrangements. I just figured might as well unite the two identities.”

Nite Creatures may be Wong’s solo debut, but it’s hardly a solo effort. The album title doubles as a reference to his live band, which includes Mary Timony (who also produced the album), Crisana Baker, Mary Lattimore, Matt Cameron, Chat Molter, and—naturally—a chamber orchestra, “so that we can faithfully replicate the sound of the album.”
