Beatie Wolfe's Story So Far...
Blessed with a voice that possesses the husky sweetness of Stevie Nicks and earthy tones of Nina Simone and hooky rhythmic guitar which fuses folk and Americana with 90s grunge, Beatie Wolfe is an Anglo-American singer songwriter hailed as the definition of a 21st century artist with a truly classic sound. Described by GQ as "mesmerising melodies that envelop the listener" and by Monocle as "expertly played, beautifully sung chamber pop," Beatie Wolfe's music pulls from the brooding poeticism of Leonard Cohen and Elliott Smith and occasionally veers into Americana territory. Wolfe's live show has been hailed as “the best show we’ve been to all year” (GQ), "so tender and confident" (The Independent) and “a profound delivery of depth and soul” (BBC).
A musical innovator as much as a musician, Beatie 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. Beatie Wolfe is also co-founder of a "profound" (The Times) new research project looking at the power of music for people living with dementia
