Newcomer KP Wolfe is a native New Yorker who developed her raw and gritty sound performing in rock musicals, including NOFX’s show about street kids and as Janis Joplin in A Night With Janis Joplin where her manager discovered her. Wolfe’s music marries pop synth and alt rock with ferocious vocals and themes about empowering women, abandoning the victim card, and embracing the taboo. She is pushing back on the depictions of women as fragile and rejects the idea of sluts vs prudes.
Her powerful and edgy vocals and brutally honest lyrics reveal her penchant for provocation, allowing her to go full throttle with explosive live performances. Though KP is a newcomer to the industry, she’s collaborated with Air Supply, Grammy nominated songwriter Lauren Christy, multi-platinum producer Adrian Newman, and Grammy award winning producers Craig Bauer and Andrew Dawson. With her new music, KP strives to open up the exploratory side of her audiences.
“This song is about the anger and hurt you feel after getting blindsided by someone you love,” Wolfe says. “They lie and string you along and then you feel so stupid for believing it all. I wrote it after a breakup as a way to let go of my anger and start forgiving them and myself.”
