Beatie Wolfe's Story So Far...
As a musician, Londoner Beatie Wolfe is blessed with a voice that possesses the husky sweetness of Stevie Nicks and earthy tones of Nina Simone and songwriting which echoes the poetic quality of Leonard Cohen, described by GQ as: “mesmerising melodies that envelope the listener as Wolfe delicately describes the poetry and tragedy of relationships” and by Monocle as “expertly played, beautifully sung chamber pop"
A musical innovator as much as a musician Wolfe is at the forefront of pioneering new formats for music, which reunite tangibility, storytelling & ceremony to the album in this digital age. In this vein, Wolfe has released both of her albums as lyric books (believing in lyrics crafted as poetry), as vinyl, as well as a series of world first designs that bridge the tangible and digital. The most recent of these include: a beautifully printed Album Deck of NFC-cards and a Musical Jacket, designed by the Savile Row tailor who dressed Bowie, Jagger and Hendrix in the 60s. Wolfe is also co-founder of a "profound" (The Times) new research project looking at the power of music for people living with dementia. Wolfe has received notable accolades for her music, innovations and philanthropic work
Beatie Wolfe's Montagu Square
Montagu Square was conceived at 34 Montagu Sq - the former home 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.
The story is documented in this video....
Singer songwriter Beatie Wolfe releases her second album Montagu Square hailed "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"
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
Seeing Music Differently :: "Definition of a 21st Century Artist"
