BALCONYTV DUBLIN 11/06/2009
PRESENTED BY TOM MILLETT
26 year old Irish artist Wallis Bird has earned a reputation as a charismatic and mesmerising live performer. She recently wowed audiences as the opening act for artists as diverse as the legendary Billy Bragg, who hand-picked her to support him on his UK tour, and Ivor Novello award winner Gabrielle, who asked Wallis to support her on her 2008 UK tour. Together with her band, she has also played sell out headline tours of Germany and Ireland, as well as high profile shows in London and the UK.
Her debut album Spoons rocketed into the Top 10 UK Digital Album charts, and earned her comparisons to Janis Joplin, Fiona Apple and Ani di Franco. A spine-tingling cover of The Feelings Sewn prompted Feeling frontman Dan Gillespie-Sells to comment that shes taken the song to another dimension.I think her style is beautiful.
Wallis live shows and album release have garnered her rave reviews from all quarters, with 4 * reviews being given by national publications including The Guardian, Daily Express and The Sun, who called her a stunning female singer-songwriter to take note of..a future star.http://www.myspace.com/wallisbird
