Based in Toronto, Brighid Fry (they / she) likes to describe Housewife as a project comprised of anyone who collaborates with her — in Nashville, Los Angeles, and New York City-based recording studios, or on tour everywhere across North America. Mostly recently Fry traveled to Nashville to write and record these songs and others with music industry mainstays like producer and multi-instrumentalist Gabe Simon (Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa, Anderson .Paak), writer and producer Carrie K (PVRIS, The Regrettes), performer and producer Mikky Ekko (Rihanna, Vince Staples, Diplo), and indie pop artist Young Summer.

Beneath the singalong hooks and top-notch production, Fry’s self-awareness and lyrical poignancy shines just as brightly. Having written music since she was 14 years old, Fry’s musical style has evolved from her parents’ folksong influences, to her self-described early-teenaged emo phase, to this contemporary amalgamation of rock, pop, and lo-fi— all buoyed by her natural gift for melody.
