About this event

WALLIS BIRD: www.wallisbird.com

"Wallis Bird is an Irish singer and folk-rock musician born in 1982. Her songs are a mix of folk traditional sounds, blues, and funk influences, energetic rock elements all complemented by an extraordinary voice.

Her most recent album, HANDS, was completed with ‘The Power Of A Word’, a hushed showcase for shimmering synths and a notably ethereal vocal. At the heart of the track – as with so much of HANDS – is self-examination, change and acceptance. “Up until recently,” BIRD concludes, “I simply treated my hand as something additional, not primary to my story. But, during this pandemic, when everything in my usual life was scattered, I found myself wondering ‘Who am I? What am I? What story do I leave behind?’ My story had been one of stubborn ‘I can do it just as good as anyone’, but this new chapter in my life has been about letting go of over-controlling, handing things over to others, being comfortable with my surroundings and colleagues, and knowing I’m understood. Right now, I’m a passenger, a guest in my life, because the album has been so collaborative and so out-of-bodily written, almost hypnotically. And I love it!”

And it shows. So let’s see those HANDS in the air. After all, there’s a lot to celebrate here..."
