Following a whirlwind signing to Island Records to release her debut album 'Spoons' in 2007, Irish artist Wallis Bird has been quickly earning a reputation as a charismatic and mesmerising live performer. She wowed audiences as the opening act for Billy Bragg, who hand-picked her to support him on his UK tour. In 2009 she was asked to open for Rodrigo y Gabriela, playing to sold-out concert halls across Europe. Together with her band, she has also played sell out headline tours of Germany and Ireland.

The debut album 'Spoons' rocketed into the Top 10 UK Digital Album charts, and earned her comparisons to Janis Joplin and Ani di Franco. In 2009 she signed to Columbia Records for Europe and Rubyworks for the UK and Ireland. Her album 'New Boots' was released to great acclaim and she bagged the Best Female award at the Irish Meteors in 2010. In 2012 she released 'Wallis Bird' and toured extensively around Europe, plus a sold out show in New York.

Wallis' live shows and album release have garnered her rave reviews from all quarters, with 4 * reviews being given by national publications including The Guardian, Daily Express and The Sun, who called her 'a stunning female singer-songwriter to take note of.....a future star'.
