Irish artist Wallis Bird has been enrapturing audiences for over a decade, playing over 800 shows in that time.
Wallis has won multiple international awards including two Irish Meteor Awards, and the prestigious German Musikautorenpreis’ – a national award chosen by composers and awarded to their peers. She has also received nominations for the 2019 International Folk Music Award and the Irish Choice Music Prize. Her irrepressible energy on stage is one of her trademarks; even the Irish Times once noted it could ‘kickstart an entire economy’. In 2016, she played a 12-hour free gig in aid of refugee charities, even finding enough strength to play an encore.
In 2019, Wallis released her 6th album, Woman, which covers all of the major life changes Wallis has experienced since her last album Home in 2016. “The world’s changed a lot, and I’ve changed with it. The #MeToo movement, Repeal The 8th, Black Lives Matter, Trump, Brexit, the rise of racism, the environmental crisis. And, I’m 36 now, so I’m officially a woman!” During the pandemic, Wallis began her ‘Retrospective Sessions’ in which she performed all of her 6 albums virtually in 6 monthly concerts streamed live from various venues in Berlin including the biggest queer nightclub SchwuZ, the stadium Alte Försterei home to Berlin’s top league football club Union Berlin, legendary nightclub Cassiopeia and the luxury spa Liquidrom in Berlin’s historic Kreuzberg district. Wallis is currently recording in the studio on her 7th album, which will be released in 2022. In the meantime, you can catch Wallis performing corona-safe shows across Ireland in special locations with limited tickets available. These energy filled shows are Wallis’ first concerts back on home soil since before the pandemic, and a glimpse of what’s to come with her album tour in 2022.
