Aoife Wolf is a singer-songwriter from County Offaly. Her music blends elements of folk and alt-rock with lyrical content that draws on surrealism to translate the tangled world of the human mind. Having grown up among largely isolated farm and bogland in Co. Offaly, a childhood spent roaming fields alone, singing loudly helped cultivate the singer's vocal and writing style.
Aoife has been influenced by the musical stylings of Jefferson Airplane, Kate Bush and Pj Harvey. Haunting vocals accented by frequent collaborator Paul Corrigan's (Tyrone) off-kilter electric guitar lines make for an an arresting live performance which has brought them to play to captive audience in Irish venues such as Whelan's, the Roisin Dubh and even further afield with a run of gigs in Germany.
2019 has been a busy year for Wolf who along with her full band, opened up the main stage at Arcadian Fields Festival in August. In September a selection of her songs were performed with live choreography as part of a multi-disciplinary theatre show involving dance, circus and live music. The sold out show was listed in both the Irish Times and DublinLive.ie as one of the top things to see on Culture Night. Aoife is currently recording her debut collection of songs in the Analogue Catalogue Studio in Co. Down for release early next year and working on future collaborations with Eribidae Aerial Dance Troupe.
