Wallis Bird (Ireland) | Dec 15, 2016
Irish dynamite Wallis Bird's expressive vocals and driving guitar rhythms are being compared to artists like Ani DiFranco, Fiona Apple or the young Janis Joplin. Her exceptional voice moves from delicate whispers to explosive cries in a heartbeat, inciting rousing sing-a-longs or spellbound silences.
Now based in Berlin, in the last 7 years Bird has played over 600 shows in Europe and won two Irish Music Awards (Meteor award). Every performance is characterised by an almost startling passion; one that frequently leaves Bird breathless and her acoustic guitar strings shredded to pieces. Her refreshingly honest, self-effacing manner has endeared her to audiences worldwide.
Now with her new album, Home, Bird is finally making her first ever appearance in Australia with a tour that includes Woodford, Cygnet and Illawarra Folk Festivals, plus east coast headline shows. Unmissable.
