Vita and the Woolf is the brainchild of Jennifer Pague. It is an electronic soul pop music group from Philadelphia consisting of Pague on vocals and synths and Adam Shumski on percussion.. The name was originally inspired by the love relationship between the writers Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf. Shumski joined Pague in August 2014 and the duo has gone on three tours together including SXSW in 2015 and 16 and have recently added a guitarist to the mix to make the band a three piece Much of Vita's music is vocal driven and includes a wide range of harmonies. The vocals often get compared to Florence Welch of Florence & The Machine, and other similarities include Bat for Lashes, Regina Spektor, and James Blake. The haunting harmonies and vocal layering combined with crazy instrumentation and simple drumming produce a sound that reflects R&B, soul, jazz, and powerful choral ballads.
