Karly Hartzman

Karly Hartzman is a singer, songwriter and front-person for the Asheville, NC based rock band Wednesday. Their most recent album Twin Plagues was released by Orindal Records in 2021 garnering critical acclaim from Pitchfork, Stereogum, PASTE, The Fader and others.

On Karly’s songwriting author & poet Hanif Abdurraqib had this to say:
“Everything has a place, and so much of its place is to serve the true heart of this album, and the true heart of Wednesday’s music, which is allowing cracks through which tenderness can enter and exit as needed. Tenderness that, it seems to me, is always wrestling underneath whatever else might be happening on a song’s surface.”
