Five women, ten instruments; Wookalily weave a sonic world full of wonder, mystery and mayhem. Creating a cinematic soundtrack that transports you to another realm, these ladies manage to keep you awed and bemused with their folk-noir troubadour tales, low bowing double bass, four part harmonies, piano, banjo, psychedelic flutes and more. Just hot off finishing their second album with award winning producer and engineer Julie McLarnon (Lankum, Yorkston/Thorne/Khan) at Analogue Catalogue Studios, these ladies have honed their trade into something classic, timeless and organically superb.
Wookalily released their debut EP Black Magic Doll in 2011. Their song ‘Diamonds And Gold’ gained them a showcase at the prestigious IBMA WOB Festival, Nashville 2012. They recorded for Country Music Hall-Of-Famer Dixie Hall’s Pickin’ Like A Girl compilation in 2013 – the only non-American band to do so. Their own debut album All The Waiting While was released in November 2014. It’s rumbling along nicely with lots of airplay and humbling acclaim from fellow musicians worldwide. In 2016 they were scouted by Warner Bros Wall to Wall Productions for a BBC4 documentary featuring Midge Ure and Rhod Gilbert. They have opened stages for the likes of Martha Wainwright and Bap Kennedy to name a few.
May the Wook be with you!
