With a sound somewhere between 90s alternative and rrriot girl, Wise Girl is a sharp, power pop trio that draws from the past but produces something wholly modern. Based in New York, Wise Girl is fronted by powerhouse vocalist Abby Weitz (vocals/guitar). Weitz started the band in 2010 and sought out Chris Fasulo (guitar/producer) to collaborate on a three song EP. Their musical chemistry was immediately evident. Harry Keithline (drums) rounded out Wise Girls sound and made the band complete. The bands unique direction is the product of Weitzs individual view on the music making process.
Weitz, described as a female Rivers Cuomo (Electric Feast), deems no topic taboo while transferring her feelings into song. The female frontwoman notes that numerous tracks have been inspired by people who are currently or once were in her life, creating a song-by-song memoir. The emotion and energy found within Wise Girls music transfers easily into live performances. Similar to being welcomed into their home, attending a Wise Girl show is electrifying and uncensored. The band, self-described as an energetic, dysfunctional family, radiates across their audiences and invites listeners to become part of Wise Girls chaotic world. We want the audience to feel like they can relate to us and share in our experiences, explains Fasulo.
Wise Girl has graced the stage of numerous legendary New York venues such as The Knitting Factory, Mercury Lounge, Pianos and The Greene Space (WNYCs performance stage). They have also appeared on numerous famed media sources to include: Beta TV, Playboy Radio, Kate Spade and many more.
In 2012, Wise Girl released their self-titled debut 3-song EP to esteemed reviews and helped garner a faithful following. 2013 marked the release of the bands first, full-length, debut Youll Just Have To Wait. The album, produced by Wise Girls own Chris Fasulo, is a 10-track LP filled with power chords, driving beats and authentic lyrics ripped straight from Weitzs personal experiences.
