Enigmatic Irish Performer Wallis Bird

Australian Tour

January 2024

In Kansas City, Missouri and Port Fairy, Victoria, we at LTTL have witnessed the beguiling and unique talent of the Irish native, Berlin-based Wallis Bird. Her passionate and heartfelt music will again be on display when she returns to Australia in January 2024 for her fourth tour here (dates below).

The pandemic may have interrupted her 2022 touring plans, but the intervening time has not been quiet for this international award-winning artist.

In 2022, Bird unveiled her seventh studio album HANDS, a personal and experimental creation. The album turns the spotlight inwards, delving into deeply personal issues such as trust, alcohol abuse, stagnation and self-improvement, framed by moments from the last two tumultuous years.

The album cover reveals a hand missing a little finger – a testament to Bird’s childhood accident where she lost her fingers to a lawnmower. “Four were reconnected. One was lost. This led me to relearn how to hold things, and, when the time came, to play the guitar differently,” Bird reflects.

Since the release of HANDS, Bird has toured Europe, the USA and the UK. Before the pandemic, her solo tours in Australia in 2016, 2017 and 2019, including an unforgettable twelve-hour charity concert in Melbourne, left an indelible mark.

For over a decade, Bird has boasted more than 1000 shows, two Irish Meteor Awards, a nomination for the Irish Choice Music Prize, a prestigious 2017 German “Musikautorenpreis” award and a nomination for musician of the year by Ireland’s legendary music magazine Hot Press.
