Skye Wallace is what happens when a trained singer with east coast roots discovers punk rock in their youth and writes music that makes you feel excited.
Skye’s upcoming self-titled album embodies Canadiana. From living on BC’s west coast to spending time at residencies from Norris Point, Newfoundland to Dawson City, Yukon, the Toronto-based artist has been inspired by every corner of the country. The new album combines her folk songwriting roots with influences from 90’s riot girls and grunge, resulting
in songs that jump from somber reflections to rowdy highs.
Her last album, Something Wicked, was produced by beloved musician/songwriter Jim Bryson. It was named one of Vancouver Weekly’s Best Albums of 2016, CBC’s Top 8 Albums You Need To Hear This Month, and was dubbed by CBC’s Stephen Quinn, a “kick ass record”. Skye
has been cited as one of Canada’s best female artists and aptly described as “Fire” by Noisey. Her in-demand live show has landed her performances at NXNE’s main stage, the National Arts Centre, Halifax Pop Explosion, Vancouver Folk Fest, multiple support dates for Sam Roberts Band, and a residency at the Dakota Tavern in Toronto last fall that solidified garnering much industry buzz.
