Most artists can’t sustain the kind of energy levels that Wallis exhibits on stage. Every performance is characterised by an almost startling passion; one that frequently leaves her breathless and her acoustic guitar strings shredded to pieces. Moving from delicate whispers to explosive cries in a heartbeat, then inciting a rousing sing-a-long or spellbound silence, Wallis weaves her magic around audiences of every kind. Dancing, laughing, sighing, screaming or crying, anyone who has experienced one of her live concerts knows that this is not just entertainment: it’s a way of life. She has received two Meteor Awards (Ireland’s national music prize), and been nominated twice for Choice Music Prize – Album of the Year.
