Skye Wallace’s sound is exciting, dynamic, gritty, and beautiful. The backbone consists of her driving songs, juxtaposed with captivating storytelling and sweeping instrumentation. A truly powerful performer, this girl is known for her sultry songwriting and a charged live show that is bound to stick with you.
Wallace’s 2014 release Living Parts was dubbed by Vancouver Weekly as one of the Top 10 Vancouver Albums of 2014, and received attention from CBC Searchlight and satellite radio in Canada and the US, and saw showcases at Folk Alliance, CMW and NXNE. Her newest concoction, SOMETHING WICKED, will be released in spring 2016, to be produced by Jim Bryson.
Listed as one of Blog TO’s Top 20 Folk & Roots Shows in Toronto last summer and hailed as Vancouver’s queen of dark folk, Skye Wallace truly is a “national treasure” (Sad Mag). This is a show you won’t want to miss.
“Skye Wallace, a denizen of Vancouver BC and one impressive musician, let me tell you. In terms of style, she skirts many. In terms of voice and songwriting, she freaks me out. A bit of soul, a touch of swamp, a teaspoon of 50s, a dash of folk. She does it all and all within the confines of who she is… Just good, honest music.”

“Skye Wallace is a national treasure.”
“Skye Wallace’s music was one of the great finds of Searchlight. She writes personal, honest and powerful songs that Emmylou Harris or Gord Downie would be happy to have in their set.”
