Skye Wallace works to compile all of the stark elements of the Canadian landscape into a sort of musical archive. Inspired by historical non-fiction and field recordings, particularly the esteemed National Parks Project, Skye’s songs are made out of stories that are hidden in plain sight. The resulting sound is experimental, gritty, and orchestral.
Skye is currently residing, performing, and writing in Vancouver.
After having embarked on a successful Canada-wide tour and West Coast festival circuit (Artswells, North Country Fair, Khatsalano, Sled Island, Edge of the World), Skye Wallace now plans to record, release, and tour a new album by next spring. The new sounds and compositions are comprised of influences from classical string pieces, the grunge-folk movement, and her own vulnerable storytelling.
“… Her enchanting voice is complimented by an array of instruments, some of which are highly unusual. Her music will make a worthy addition to any record collection.”
Vincent Jones, Music City Podcast
