Singer songwriter Beatie Wolfe releases her second album Montagu Squarehailed "Absolutely Gorgeous" by The Independent, "Ingenious" by Huffington Post & "Bleeding Edge" by WIRED. Monocle describes the album as: "pure and simple; a short, sharp flip-it-over-and-listen-again LP of well-made, expertly played, beautifully sung chamber pop."
With songwriting that has been likened to Leonard Cohen’s and melodies that feel reminiscent of Lennon's effortless simplicity, Wolfe's tender yet confident second album Montagu Square is a collection of songs that touch on themes of today and combine powerful musicianship with fresh yet timeless songwriting
Montagu Square was conceived at 34 Montagu Sq - the former home and secret studio of Hendrix, Ringo, McCartney, Lennon & Yoko Ono - and the single 'Take Me Home' was recorded in the room where McCartney wrote ‘Eleanor Rigby’ & Hendrix penned ‘The Wind Cries Mary.' Montagu Square was also released as the first Musical Jacket of it's kind.
Beatie Wolfe has been hailed as the definition of a 21st century artist with a truly classic sound. Described as “ground-breaking" by The Independent, "ingenious" by Huffington Post & "bleeding edge" by WIRED, Beatie's career has taken her from being the artist who pioneered the World's First 3D Interactive Album App for her debut album 8ight - which led to a world tour with Apple - to being an Innovation Ambassador for London. For her new album Montagu Square - conceived at the former home and secret studio of Hendrix, Ringo, McCartney, Lennon & Yoko Ono - Beatie continues to innovate; releasing it as the world’s first Album Deck of NFC Cards and a Musical Jacket, cut by the Savile Row tailor who dressed Hendrix & Bowie in the ‘60s. Beatie is also the co-founder of a "profound" (The Times) new research project looking at the Power of Music for people living with dementia.
With echoes of Leonard Cohen throughout her songwriting - described by GQ as "beautiful melodies which envelop the listener as she delicately describes the poetry and tragedy of relationships" - and with a voice which her musical mentor Wynton Marsalis calls "simply captivating," Beatie Wolfe is both a must-see singer-songwriter and a powerful force of Innovation.
Beatie's shows range from venues like Ronnie Scott's, Jazz Cafe & 606 Club to the Roundhouse, Marquee Club & Serpentine Gallery; a residency with Punchdrunk in New York to festivals like Secret Garden Party in the UK & SXSW and Wassaic in the US. Beatie has presented Keynotes at CeBIT, WIRED, The Royal Institution, DLD Munich, Digital Shoreditch, the Social Innovation Summit and Apple HQ in Cupertino.
Beatie Wolfe has been hailed for "seeing music differently" and pioneering entirely new formats for her music releases, including a 3D Interactive Album App for 8ight and the world's first album deck of NFC cards & the 'Take Me Home' gown for Montagu Square.
Beatie is also musical director & co-founder of the 'Power of Music & Dementia' project - the "first study of its kind" (The Times) to prove that new music can be as effective as familiar music in reanimating people living with dementia. Read more below.
