"You guys absolutely rock" - Radio 3

"Startling and shimmering,"- Folk Wales

Power-folk four-piece Wise Woman mix lush vocal harmonies, cinematic strings and 90s girl power to tell the stories of hidden women. Formed in the darkness of a pandemic winter,  the group’s “intoxicating” (Folk & Tumble) blend of folk, jazz, blues and musical theatre sounds have been heard far and wide; from guesting on Radio 3 to Glasgow's Celtic Connections, to opening for Radio 2 Folk Award winners The Young Uns in 2023.

Paying homage to the individual music careers of the band (collaborations range from Arctic Monkeys to Mediaeval Baebes to leading roles in the West End),  Wise Woman’s signature vocal harmonies and sensuous cello lines arrive with startling variety.  One moment as warm and rich as a fireside bara brith, the next, a dazzling war cry of Boudicca-scale rage, their intricate songs transport audiences on a theatrical journey through forgotten worlds and everyday treasures.  Their 2022 debut EP release, Thread, was hailed as "a most exciting discovery of 2022," by Tom Robinson's Fresh on the Net blog.

Following a successful Crowdfunding campaign (thanks, folks!) the band released their new single, Home Safe, in April 2024.   Built out of the necessary phrase they've used a thousand times and laden with "ridiculously perfect harmonies" (BBC Leeds), the single brings new percussive sounds and build on Wise Woman's signature layered harmonies.  The single release was accompanied by the band's first UK Tour in Spring 2024.

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

"Highly auspicious ... intoxicating,"- Folk & Tumble
