The Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh.

Lauded by the media for her stunning performance at California’s famed honky-tonk, The Palomino, which re-opened for a one-night-only benefit in October 2018, Californian songstress Alice Wallace is ready to carry forward the West Coast country legacy that the legendary venue embodied with her new album Into the Blue. The album will be Wallace’s debut on Rebelle Road Records, a Los Angeles label founded by women and dedicated to balancing equity for female artists and keeping alive the California country sound.
Americana artist, Alice Wallace, draws on some powerful female influences, like Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. Not only are these powerhouses heard throughout her music, but Wallace is invoking their fierce, independent spirits and paying it forward for female artists.
Into the Blue is Wallace’s magnum opus, whittled with misery and truth and love and loss. It’s a timely, profoundly-apocalyptic set-piece of inescapable tragedy and bent with sterling vocal showmanship and incomparable songwriting. Wallace, simply put, is a force of gutting power.
She is returning to the U.K. for the first time since her debut at Country 2 Country (C2C) at the O2 London in 2015.
