Two-time Irish Meteor Awards winner - singer-songwriter Wallis Bird - returns with a new album, ‘Home’, set for release on 30th September via Mount Silver Records and Caroline International.
Described as a 'thank you letter' to her muse and partner, the album is a collection of songs that encompass a vast range of styles and emotions without ever sacrificing the indelible character at its center. From ‘Change’, which opens the album in a deceptively downbeat fashion before blossoming into something truly joyous, to the serene reflection of the closing ‘Seasons’, via the celebration of friendship at the heart of ‘That Leads The Way’, ‘Seasons’ and the intimate, almost R&B feel of ‘The Deep Reveal’. Wallis Bird appears utterly fearless in the passionate and frenzied ‘Control’, while the album’s title track finds her stripping things right back, singing a cappella in the Irish Sean Nós style.
In a departure from her previous releases, the album sees Wallis Bird occupying the producer’s chair and playing most of the instruments, it was largely recorded in her Berlin home studio and completed at Kleine Audiowelt, with the help of Get Well Soon long term collaborator, producer and mixer Marcus Wuest.
Having notched up memorable live performances at legendary Montreux Jazz Festival, Lowlands and Pukkelpop, as well as supporting artists such as Gabrielle, Billy Bragg, The Gossip and Anaïs Mitchell - the Berlin based songwriter has become a formidable and renowned international live act - recently playing a 12-hour non-stop gig in aid of the city’s refugee projects.
