Vita and the Woolf is the sound of operatic vocals meeting synth pop. Driven by the anthemic voice of front woman, Jennifer Pague and supported by the dynamic drumming of Adam Shumski, Vita and the Woolf has been melding cross-genre influences in their powerhouse electronic style since their first EP “Fang Song” came out in 2014. Their head-turning live show has since grown to reflect both the range of Pague’s vocals and the music’s shape shifting energy.
Originally inspired by the love relationship between novelists Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf, the name “Vita and the Woolf” was chosen while Pague was studying abroad in Europe in 2012. Upon returning to the states and going through a variety of line up changes, the band has since solidified as a collaboration between Pague and Shumski. In the past year this configuration of Vita and the Woolf has been featured on the Urban Outfitters Music Blog, NYLON Magazine, and other regional and national media outlets as the band gears up for their upcoming album release in 2017.

Vita and the Woolf have recently toured with Rasputina, Bell X1 and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. They have also performed at XPoNential Music Festival in 2015 on the same lineup as St. Vincent, My Morning Jacket, and Courtney Barnett and opened for Milk & Bone, Christine Perri & Colbie Caillat, and Hamilton Leithauser (The Walkmen).
