Zoë Wren's latest release, "Wonder," invites listeners to escape the chaos of everyday life and immerse themselves in the captivating beauty of nature. Having emerged from busking on the streets to becoming an esteemed Twitch partner, Wren's delicate fingerstyle guitar playing now captivates thousands each week. Her lyrical prowess draws comparisons to folk legends like Joni Mitchell, as she effortlessly weaves poignant narratives that resonate like timeless classics.
Wren's eclectic sources of inspiration, ranging from female WWII spies to the enigmatic stranger who once left an engagement ring in her guitar case, contribute to her distinctive style. Her debut album, "Reckless River," was hailed as Fatea's Debut Album of the Year in 2020, and she received the esteemed PRS Lynsey de Paul Prize for female music creators in 2017. Additionally, Wren actively engages with charities, including Live Music Now, and collaborates with the folk duo Roswell.
In "Wonder," Zoë Wren takes a step back from her accolades to ponder the insignificance of humanity in the grand tapestry of existence. The track celebrates the beauty of embracing our impermanence and reveling in the liberation that accompanies acknowledging nature's all-encompassing power. As Wren eloquently describes, "Wonder encapsulates the overwhelming awe evoked by the boundless expanses of the natural world, allowing us to find solace in our own fleeting presence. It's a song that deserves a place in your playlist as you gaze at the endless sea, peer out of a train window into the horizon, or simply find yourself on a serene green bench, marveling at the world around you."
