Beatie Wolfe // Overview

Blessed with a voice that possesses both the husky sweetness of Stevie Nicks and earthy tones of Nina Simone - described by the Independent as “absolutely gorgeous” - and hooky rhythmic guitar which fuses folk and Americana with 90s grunge, Beatie Wolfe is an Anglo-American singer songwriter with a truly classic sound. With echoes of Leonard Cohen throughout her songwriting, celebrated for its poetic appeal, and described by GQ as “beautiful melodies which delicately detail the poetry and tragedy of relationships“ - Wolfe writes and performs brooding, authentic folk songs or what Monocle calls “perfectly made, expertly played, beautifully sung chamber pop.” Wolfe’s live show has been hailed as “the best show we’ve been to all year” (GQ) and “a profound delivery of depth and soul” (The Upcoming).

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: the world's first Album Deck of NFC-cards and a Musical Jacket, designed by the Savile Row tailor who dressed Bowie, Jagger and Hendrix in the 60s. This led Nobel/Oscar/Turing Prize winner Bell Labs to invite Beatie Wolfe to be the first artist to choreograph and perform a live show using its Human Digital Orchestra platform. Wolfe is also co-founder of a "profound" (The Times) new research project looking at the power of music for people living with dementia.
