Wallis Bird

singer-songwriter // folk

Currently living and working in London, Irish singer-songwriter and a self-taught guitarist Wallis Bird has travelled the world and began her career in Germany, where she formed a band with her musician friends. Wallis approaches her music with bold honesty and integrity as she moves beyond the female singer-songwriter stereotypes with her style ranging from grunge folk to buoyant and lively pop. Original and fresh enough to appeal to a wide variety of listeners, “Counting To Sleep” brings to mind the strength and openness of Ani DiFranco.

The strong melody and clever wit.

    Awesome! I think I’ve listened to this song a dozen times in a row and I still want more. I’m a huge fan of your site. There’s always a hidden gem waiting to be unearthed in your musical garden. Thanks for that. :)

    As I’m irish myself I’ve known about Wallis for a while. She has a fair few good songs. Her lyrics could use a bit of polishing on some of her other songs, but she puts on a fun show live.

    It’s always good for a change. However, in Ireland she’s up against another new female singer-songwriter (Cathy Davey, which I recommend) and Wallis isn’t as big as Cathy, but hopefully she can improve in popularity. Nonetheless, she’s a good artist.
