Skye Wallace is what happens when a classically trained singer with east coast roots discovers punk rock in their youth and writes music that makes you feel excited.
Hailed coast to coast as a “national treasure” (Sad Mag), Skye Wallace bases out of Toronto and sometimes Vancouver too. Her band is raucous and her voice is a force to be reckoned with. Her newest album “Something Wicked”, produced by Jim Bryson, is dropping in October, accompanied by tour dates across the country.
“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.”
