Wallis Bird

WALLIS BIRD, known for her explosive blend of Irish folk, rock, pop and soul, announces her new album for 2022 (release date: 5/27-22). With “HAND,” or “NINE AND A HALF SONGS FOR NINE AND A HALF FINGERS” (in reference to a childhood accident that permanently damaged her left hand), WALLIS BIRD puts the focus on herself and raises issues that are difficult to deal with – topics such as confidence, alcohol abuse, stagnation, self-censorship and self-improvement.

With her extraordinary creativity, but most importantly, her joy and empathy, she carefully addresses each issue. The first single “What’s Wrong With Changing?” offers a promising first glimpse of the upcoming LP. Inspired by the rhythmic discipline of Janet Jackson’s albums “Control,” “Rhythm Nation 1814,” and “janet,” the song is driven by crisp chord progressions with attractive drive. Brimming with ingenuity and brazenness, it epitomizes BIRD’s uninhibited creativity – a testament to her highly regarded and fearless temperament.

WALLIS BIRD has been thrilling audiences with their musical force for over a decade and has played over 1000 shows in that time. Her blend of Irish folk, rock and pop has earned her several international awards to date, including two Irish Meteor Awards (national Irish music award) and the German Music Authors Award in the rock/pop category. Her irrepressible energy on stage is one of her trademarks; even the Irish Times once noted “that with her energy she could jump-start the economy of an entire country.”
WALLIS BIRD, an artist full of love, soul and empathy, lives in Berlin with her partner, surrounds herself in her art with like-minded people and friends – and has put her career on her own feet from the very beginning.

She stands up for women’s and transgender rights, against racism and injustice, for acceptance and constructive conflict resolution.
