Beatie Wolfe has beamed her music into space, been designated a UN role model for innovation, done groundbreaking research on the power of music for people with dementia, created the world’s first live 360 AR ‘anti-stream’ from the quietest room on earth, and is the subject of new documentary commissioned by the Barbican directed by Ross Harris.
Beatie Wolfe is an Anglo-American singer songwriter with an acoustic indie rock sound. Described by GQ as "smoky captivating melodies” and by Highsnobiety as “timeless romantic song-craft, Wolfe's music pulls from the brooding poeticism of Leonard Cohen, the tender haunting melodies of Elliott Smith and often veers into Americana territory.” Wolfe's live show has been hailed as "breathtaking" (The New York Times) and “a profound delivery of depth and soul” (BBC)
Named by WIRED Magazine as one of "22 people changing the world,” Beatie Wolfe is at the forefront of pioneering new formats for music, which reunite tangibility, storytelling and ceremony to the album in this digital age. In this vein, Wolfe has created a series of world’s-first designs that bridge the physical and digital, including: a 3D vinyl for the palm of your hand; an intelligent album deck of cards; a wearable record jacket - cut by the tailor who dressed Bowie and Hendrix out of fabric woven with Wolfe’s music - and most recently the world's first live 360 AR stream from the quietest room on earth and a Space Beam via the Big Bang Horn
Wolfe’s work has been featured in the world’s leading museums (including a major solo exhibition at the V&A Museum), festivals, conferences and received nominations across the music, tech and art fields. Forbes calls Wolfe "an Artist with a capital A" for mixing her music with art, technology and science and taking it to entirely new dimensions. Wolfe is also the co-founder of a “profound” (The Times) research project looking at the power of music for people living with dementia
