You Are Wolf's official bio
You Are Wolf (aka Kerry Andrew) explores English and American folk, fusing source material with leftfield pop and contemporary classical stylings, gentle touches of electronica and spoken word, all melded with an array of wild vocal techniques.
Her debut album, ‘Hawk to the Hunting Gone’ (released May 2014, Stone Tape) explored British birds and folklore. Her first EP ‘Hunting Little Songs’ was released in 2011.
Her music has been played on BBC 6 Music by Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe and Stuart Maconie, BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction and New York’s premier indie radio station WFUV. She is a regular on Radio 3’s The Verb and recently performed her debut short story (birdlore-themed, of course) on BBC Radio 4. She was an EDFSS/The Magpie’s Nest Folk Rising artist, and has played at The Great Escape, Leigh Folk Festival, Union Chapel, Cambridge Folk Festival and the Queen Elizabeth Hall.
You Are Wolf was awarded a grant from the PRS Foundation for Music’s Women Make Music scheme to write the songs for her new album. She has supported Martin Carthy, Alasdair Roberts, Trans (with Bernard Butler) and Laura J Martin.
Elsewhere, as Kerry Andrew, she’s a composer of experimental vocal music and choral music, as well as a performer with adventurous a cappella trio, juice, punky jazz crew DOLLYman and folkjazz sextet Metamorphic. She presents the Strawberry Shortwave Radio Show on Haggerston.
