"Alice Wallace, whose steady tenor is shot through with Crystal Gayle's ache, Linda Ronstadt's country essence," - Holly Gleason, Pollstar
one of the most unheralded singers in independent country/Americana. - Saving Country Music
Its a song about taking the risk to do what you love, Alice Wallace says of the soaring track, The Blue, which yields a lyric entitling her spellbinding new album. With Into the Blue, the California-country singer-songwriter conjures the atmospheric sound of the Golden States canyons and deserts, mountains and crashing waves, its crowning beauty and its tragic losses. At the same time, the supple-voiced Wallace tells her own and others stories, weaving tales that resonate as we grapple with so many disturbing national issues.
Into the Blue is Wallaces fourth album but marks her debut on the brand-new Rebelle Road label, an imprint founded by a trio of women dedicated to strengthening the California Country music community and expanding visibility for female artists in the Americana/roots genre. They care so deeply about giving women a stronger voice in the music industry, Wallace attests. Having spent the past six years writing songs and touring the nation from AMERICANAFEST® to county fairs, barrooms to coffeehouses Alice Wallace is ready to break out. It takes bravery to sail away into the blue and grab it, she says. It took me until about six years ago to finally take the plunge, quit my job and go for it. I havent looked back since.
Into the Blue represents Wallaces evolution as a recording artist, showcasing her growth as a songwriter as she embraces a fuller sound, backed by some of Americanas most distinctive players. Co-produced by Steve Berns and Rebelle Roads studio veteran, songwriter and musician KP Hawthorn (whove made a name for themselves working with artists in the West coast Americana scene), the album is brimming with soul. The formidable rhythm section, including drummer Jay Bellerose (Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Aimee Mann) and bassist Jennifer Condos (Jackson Browne, Graham Nash), underpins instrumentation ranging from Tom Bremers crunchy electric guitar to Kaitlin Wolfbergs lush string arrangements to keys and pedal steel from Jeremy Long (Sam Outlaw).
