Work Wife Electronic Press Kit


    Work Wife is the indie rock project made up of Brooklyn-based musicians Meredith Lampe, Cody Edgerly and Kenny Monroe. With influences such as Faye Webster, Neil Young and American Football, Work Wife blends melancholy lyrics and folk rock instrumentals to achieve music that evokes their own dark humor. Work Wife's debut EP was released December 2022 on Born Losers Records, produced by Jordan Dunn-Pilz and Daniel Álvarez de Toledo (TOLEDO) and mixed by Melina Duterte (Jay Som). Their tour history includes stages shared with acts such as Anthony Green and Cafuné, and have been featured in FLOOD Magazine, Rolling Stone India and Under the Radar. Their Audiotree session and sophomore EP are due out in 2023.

"The catchy + clever debut single from Meredith Lampe's new solo project is an all-too-relatable 'eye-roll at going on the same dates over and over again.'”

"Thought We Met Before is not predominantly pessimistic either, but rather approaches the problem with a kind of dark humor, which contributes well to the atmosphere of the track."
