"Startling and shimmering"- FolkWales
"A highly auspicious debut... intoxicating,"- Folk & Tumble
Hailing from the wilds of East Anglia and South Wales, power-folk four-piece Wise Woman bring lush vocal harmonies, cinematic strings and 90s girl power to the airwaves and eardrums.
Formed during the dark depths of a pandemic winter, the band's sound is forged from a decade of joy-filled musical friendship, a healthy dollop of Boudicca-style rage and numerous collaborations as individual musicians with artists as varied as Anna Meredith, Mediaeval Baebes & the LSO. (They may have also starred in a very famous West End musical... such rumours...). It turns out, their particular blend of folk, jazz, blues and musical theatre is a perfect tonic for these strange times we live in . Wise Woman have been subsequently enchanting headline slots at institutions including Green Note & Folkroom ever since.
Their debut EP Thread champions female stories in power folk form .
Weaving together misogyny, magic, motherhood and madness, from the East Anglian wildlands to the smoky underworld of New Orleans, Thread is a rallying cry for all womxn to take what they deserve and roar into their own futures.
Wise Woman are Anna Pool, Lydia Bell, Charlotte Vaughan & Maddie Cutter.
