Beatie Wolfe's third album Raw Space is released as the world's first live 360˚ AR album stream from the quietest room on earth. This enhanced streaming format was pioneered by Wolfe as a way of recapturing some of the old-school magic of music, its tangibility and artwork. The music of Raw Space has been described as raw, gritty and edgy, with the opening track, 'Little Moth', written in tribute to Elliott Smith

Beatie Wolfe's Story So Far...
“With a voice that can carry off husky intros and belting climaxes” (The Independent) and hooky rhythmic guitar which fuses folk with 90s grunge, Beatie Wolfe is an Anglo-American singer songwriter hailed as the definition of a 21st century artist with a truly classic sound. Described by GQ as "mesmerising melodies that envelop the listener" and by Monocle as "expertly played, beautifully sung chamber pop," Beatie Wolfe's music pulls from the brooding poeticism of Leonard Cohen and Elliott Smith and occasionally veers into Americana territory. Wolfe's live show has been hailed as “the best show we’ve been to all year” (GQ), "absolutely breathtaking" (The New York Times) and “a profound delivery of depth and soul” (BBC)
A musical innovator as much as a musician, Beatie Wolfe is at the forefront of pioneering new formats for music, which reunite tangibility, storytelling & ceremony to the album in this digital age. In this vein, Wolfe has created a series of world’s-first designs that bridge the tangible and digital, which include: a 3D vinyl for the iPhone; an intelligent album deck of cards; a Musical Jacket - designed by the tailor who dressed Bowie, Jagger and Hendrix and cut from fabric woven with Wolfe’s music - and most recently the world's first live 360 ̊ generative AR album stream.
Beatie Wolfe’s work has been featured in the world’s leading museums, festivals, conferences and received nominations across the music, tech and art fields. Wolfe is also the co-founder of a “profound” (The Times) new research project looking at the power of music for people living with dementia
