"Recalling early Laura Marling, Dear Wife's songs are deceptively simple and immensely moving."
                 - Folkroom Records



"The ethereal sounds of Dear Wife leave the crowd so silent, you can hear a pin drop. Incredible."
                                     
 -   Shout or Whisper

Dear Wife is the solo project of folk singer and songwriter Louise Essex, from Hertfordshire. Her sound blends delicate vocals with dynamic acoustic guitar in songs that speak of womanhood, loss,
queerness, nature and downfalls. She has been performing across London, Hertfordshire, Brighton and Paris over the last five years, and her debut EP, Folly, is out now.
