Beauty by Wallace

When female soul, blues and jazz artist Wallace recently released her debut single Vinyl Skip, I wanted to hear more of the music and vocals this young artist had in store for us.

Wallace Gollan’s EP is not here yet, but her second single is: Beauty.

Wallace - Beauty (feauring Sampa)

Beauty features Sydney’s female rapper Sampa The Great, and has a lyrical message we could all benefit from hearing again and again: finding internal strength and inspiration, learning and growing from experiences good and bad, finding beauty wherever you are and pursuing your passions.

I still want to hear more from Wallace and the whole body of musical work she’s creating for us- as always, in hard copy when it comes.  Waiting patiently…

You can check out the new single Beauty here in the meantime…

Future-Soul Artist Wallace Releases ‘Vinyl Skip’

New Zealand Music Month has just begun. About the same time last week Beaver was praising the unique sounds of music coming out of Aotearoa (New Zealand) in recent decades – a promising, young New Zealand-born “future soul” artist named Wallace was digitally-releasing her debut single Vinyl Skip.

Wallace Gollan - Vinyl Skip

Wallace Gollan is a jazz-trained singer/songwriter who cites NGAIIRE, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Hiatus Kaiyote and Little Dragon amongst her influences. So then, what we know about this artist already is that her musical roots are grounded in goodness.

Next we can conjure up beautiful imagery from this Vinyl Skip story Wallace shares:

“Vinyl Skip came about after I misheard a rap by Common. He’s talking about life and says “let’s spend it slow forever”. I thought he’d said “Let’s spin it slow forever” and got this image of two people dancing to a record spinning too slow but not caring cause it meant they could dance for longer and get lost in the moment.”

Hear the sounds of Vinyl Skip


And wait patiently for the release of Wallace’s forthcoming EP to better get to know the sounds of this emerging female artist (for now you can only buy the digital single).

Until then, look out for the chance to experience hearing Wallace’s stunning voice live. She’s now Sydney-based so folks in Australia are more likely to get theirs sooner than the rest of the world.
