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.

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 Feeling’s ‘Sewn’ prompted Feeling frontman Dan Gillespie-Sells to comment that ‘she’s taken the song to another dimension….I think her style is beautiful’.

“One of the most energised performers around. Wonderful ” Daily Express

“Bird's confessional songs hit the soul hard – but it's her voice that'll melt the coldest of hearts” Daily Star
