Grab a phat dollop of Bootsy Collins, add a big scoop of Betty Davis at her boldest, several slices of Teena Marie at her most perceptive, a dash of Pharrell Williams, some Calvin Harris-style funk chunks, take several teaspoons of Amy and Lily’s jazz contortions and shove them all into a mixer, provided by Paisley Park. Zizz up. What do you get? REMI WOLF. Dat who!
If you’re a music connoisseur who likes to be on the cutting edge, you’ll want to talk about Remi right now, before anyone else, and while she’s still relatively unknown. But be sure of this: her property is going to blow up real soon. Everywhere!
The 25-year-old Californian singer (real name) appeared as a contestant on American Idol in 2014 (don’t let that put you off, she dropped-out rather enigmatically) and made her solo debut with the self-released extended-play titled You’re A Dog! in October 2019.
Prior to this, she was a recognized ski champion and represented the USA in alpine skiing at the Youth Olympic Games for two years in a row!
Aged 17 she attended USC Thornton School of Music, graduating in 2018.
penetrating, brilliantly heartfelt, concise, unabashedly sly and cheeky…
Her style is funky soul pop. But her presentation is penetrating, brilliantly heartfelt, concise, unabashedly sly and very-very cheeky. And that’s good, right? Don’t we need performers to be more sarcastic, more snarky-snappy and, well we have to say it, gloriously bold, huh?
If you’re craving butt-shaking beats, lots of bounces, clever funk ideas, and wazoos of vivacious spark… Remi will be your next solution. Guaranteed!
Her “Liquor Store” is now open for business: https://RemiWolf.lnk.to/RWLiquorStore
