"Wonderful- incredible harmonies and haunting lyrics"- Tony Fisher, BBC Essex
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, that sound has enchanted headline slots at institutions including Green Note & Folkroom.
Their debut EP Thread (to be released 28th November), champions female stories in 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.
