"You guys absolutely rock,"- BBC Radio 3

"Highly auspicious ... 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 joyous decade of musical friendship, a 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).  It turns out, their particular blend of folk, jazz, blues and musical theatre is a perfect tonic for these peculiar times we live in . 

"reinventing the rules to create something shuddering and impressive... One of my most exciting discoveries," - Fresh on the Net

Their debut EP, Thread, (November 2022) was widely praised and has seen them spreading the wise word around the UK.  Recently, they have performed at Lichfield Festival, supported SuRie and appeared on Radio 3's In Tune.   With a strong emphasis on community music making, the band were also Artists in Residence at the International School of The Hague (NL), working with students to unlock their power as composers and performers.


Wise Woman are Anna Pool, Charlotte Vaughan, Lydia Bell & Maddie Cutter.
