WALLIS BIRD – NEW MOON TOUR
at Everyman Cork.
The string-shredding singer-songwriter – once described by the Irish Times as having enough energy on stage to “kickstart an entire economy” is coming to The Everyman with her solo Wallis Bird – New Moon Tour, in celebration of her new album launching in the Autumn.
“I’m calling it the New Moon Tour because of its symbolism; transition, femininity, the passing of time and new beginnings; the dark side of light. All of this amounts to how I feel at this point in my life. This is my new moon”. Wallis Bird – New Moon Tour.
While Wallis has frequently toured with a band, she’s one of those rare artists whose stage presence – and jaw-dropping musical prowess – can fill huge rooms and venues on their own. Needless to say, The Everyman is anticipating Wallis Bird – New Moon Tour will be an unforgettable show.
The new album will be ‘folked-up’ and infused with brute soul. Heavy in beats and bass, it will be built on a quite different tonal and chordal structure than usual. Through the songs, Wallis tries to make sense of the new world we live in and infuses the album with love, understanding and questions.
Wallis’ career has drawn respect from critics and audiences alike. She’s played hundreds of headline shows over the past decade or so all over the world. She’s a two-time Meteor Award winner (national Irish music prize), a two-time Irish Choice Prize nominee, and a nominee for Artist of the Year at the American-based Folk Alliance International Awards 2019. Well known for her energetic performances, she has an unusual ability to bind audiences with her musical spells; inciting the crowds to join in rousing sing-a-longs as she shares her happiest emotions, or observe pin-drop silences as she expresses her deepest hurts. A Wallis Bird concert is unlike any other, and festival performances or support shows in front of brand-new audiences always result in a slew of new fans.
