With stellar vocal harmonies and exceptional musicianship, Foolish Wisely has quickly lit a powerful fuse within their local music scene. Easily one of the best new projects to emerge from Connecticut in the last couple years. ” - Chip McCabe

Long Bio

Foolish Wisely lives in the space between waking and dreaming. Intricate folk/americana-inspired songwriting supported by a diverse variety of instrumentation lays ground for luxuriant harmonies to paint over, which bring to life a surreal-yet-familiar world that exists within us all.

The band is made up of RJ Mac Carthaigh and Julia Autumn Ford, both multi instrumentalists and internationally touring artists with their own extensive histories in groups including Belle of the Fall, Field of Birds and The Slambovian Circus of Dreams. 

They draw inspiration from the likes of Paul Simon, David Byrne, Van Gogh, Blind Connie Williams, Ai Weiwei, Crosby Stills & Nash, Britney Spears, as well as the world and phenomena surrounding and within them.
