The Weekend With Abby Wolfe

Up-and-coming New Zealand singer and songwriter Abby Wolfe has released her new single ‘Free Falling’ – a brave and bold song, which is all about jumping into acceptance and love. 

Hailing from Dunedin, Abby found herself in Auckland in early 2017 navigating the ups and downs of being a self-managed, independent artist. It wasn’t long before she’d found herself in the studio with leading pop producers Josh Fountain (Benee, Theia, Maala, Matthew Young) and Djeisan Suskov.

“When I wrote ‘Free Falling’ it basically came down to me confronting my fears about being gay in the music industry,” explains Abby. “I had it in my head that I couldn’t be both. I thought I had to suppress one half of myself so that my career could flourish.”
