Refreshingly honest, bold, hilarious and raw, Wallis Bird's expressive vocals and driving guitar rhythms have been taking worldwide audiences by storm. Her startlingly passionate performances leave Bird breathless and her acoustic guitar strings shredded. Don't miss this extraordinary live experience.

 

Winner of two Irish Music Awards (Meteor award), and twice nominated twice for ‘Best Irish Album of the Year,’  Bird became the first non-German citizen to win the German Music Prize (Deutsche Musikautorenpreis) for Rock/Pop ‘Composer of the Year 2017’.

 

During her first appearances in Australia, Bird knocked heads back at festivals in Woodford, Mullum, Cygnet and Illwarra, and blew the doors off venues down our east coast. Audiences danced, laughed, sighed, screamed, sang along and cried.  She returns in March 2019 to perform at Port Fairy Folk Festival, The Garden of Unearthly Delights and Blue Mountains Music Festival, plus some very special shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne before her first tour into New Zealand.  Don't miss this extraordinary artist.

 

‘The intensity of Wallis Bird’s sound will pin you to the wall.’ : Sydney Morning Herald / The Age. ‘Frank and endearingly tender, a tsunami of emotion... Magnificent.’ ~ MOJO, UK.

‘It’s her humour and bold honesty that makes Bird so special.’ ~ The Guardian, UK.

‘From stripped-back folk confessionals to edgy contemporary pop raves... Bird spectacularly demonstrates her dynamic range as a singer, composer and arranger.’ : Tony Hillier, The Weekend Australian.

‘Playful, raw and bold amalgamation of sound that ebbs and flows, leaving you dancing and then standing in stillness and awe. ‘ : Rhythms Magazine. 

‘The sheer visceral energy of Wallis Bird could kick-start an entire economy.’ ~ Irish Times.
