Southern California singer/songwriter Alice Wallace makes her New York debut with a show Friday, October 6th, at 8 pm.
Wallace's powerful, elastic singing and melodic, literate song-crafting have been earning her accolades across the country over the past several years. The LA Music Critic Awards named her “Best Country/Americana Artist” in 2016, and “Best Country Artist” in 2017, and her latest album on California Country Records was listed in 7 categories on the first-round Grammy ballot earlier this year.
Wallace's music mixes elements of classic country, folk and blues into songs about love, loss and life on the road. In the past few years, she has shared stages with artists such as Wynonna Judd, Suzy Bogguss, Lee Ann Womack, Billy Joe Shaver and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
This year, Alice was chosen as an official showcase artist at the Americana Music Association Festival in Nashville that took place in September, and in August, she and her band had the opportunity to open for The Band Perry at the Pacific Amphitheater in southern California to a crowd of approximately 5,500. This was in addition to the full-time touring she does year-round, typically averaging nearly 200 shows annually. In 2016, she also embarked on a fledging tour of the UK that included two performances at the Country 2 Country Festival in London, which was headlined by artists such as Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, and Dwight Yoakam.
