Wallis Bird
Wednesday 9th June
Jabez Clegg, Manchester

Irish artist Wallis Bird is more than your average singer-songwriter. An impassioned performer, her energy on stage has earned her comparisons with Janis Joplin and Ani diFranco, as well as landing her support tours with artists as diverse as the legendary Billy Bragg, Ivor Novello winner Gabrielle and the worldwide phenomenon duo Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Perhaps best known for her storming cover of ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ which was used on one of the biggest prime-time TV ad campaigns of late 2008, on stage Wallis is a 5 ft 2 bundle of white heat. Throwing herself around the stage with willful abandon, she breaks strings, shreds her fingers from the sheer force of playing, urges the crowd into collective sing-a-longs and throws her entire soul into each performance with often breath-taking results.

Both her live shows and album releases 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’.
