A soulful voice and magnetic presence in a rising star
Get ready for the refreshing new talent of Wallace, whose trademark jazz-influenced, soulful vocal and magnetic presence are a marker of a dynamic artist on the rise.
New Zealand has been a strong breeding ground for neo-soul artists over the years, with performers such as Kimbra, Electric Wire Hustle and Fat Freddy's Drop all gaining international acclaim. With all that rich history filling her veins, Wallace might just be the next in line to find success.
Her vibrant music is a mosaic of jazz, blues, hip-hop and soul, and showcases her absorbing vocals and clever songwriting. Her lyrics are often influenced by literature, evident through the intricate wordplay she weaves to create poignant stories.
Now based in Sydney, Wallace’s talents have seen her working with Dutch legends Kraak & Smaak, Australian hip-hop staples Thundamentals, and rapper Sampa The Great, laying vocals over beats by Adventures of Godriguez, and working closely with producer Simon Cohen (producer of Justin Bieber's global #1 hit song “Love Yourself”).
