Independent Artist Of The Week: Wallace

October 24th 2016


Sydney-via-Wellington songstress Wallace creates jazz-inspired, future soul that creeps under the skin and makes your heart swell. After releasing her debut single ‘Vinyl Skip’ in 2015, she’s bounced back this year with ‘Is It You?’ and ‘Raffled Roses’.

Inspired by a new era of genre-bending artists among the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, Little Dragon, Muhsinah and Georgia Anne Muldrow, Wallace incorporates her slick, sultry voice to a unique blend of neo soul, jazz and blues.

With five singles out since 2015, she’s performed and toured with Sampa The Great and joined forces with Dutch duo Kraak & Smaak for ‘Is It You?’. Wallace is due to release her long-awaited debut EP later this year.
