Wallace is a Sydney-based R&B/neo-soul singer-songwriter from New Zealand. Not too long ago, she released a nostalgic neo-soul tune, entitled, “Pantone Home”, produced by Danny Barwick.

Wallace – “Pantone Home”

“‘Pantone Home is my second collab with the incredible Danny Barwick. I fell in love instantly with the beautiful sampling of pianist Colin Hopkins. I’m not quite sure why but it made me think of home. I didn’t find out till after I’d finished all the lyrics that Colin is an architect by day. Was meant to be.” – Wallace

‘Photone Home’ contains a sentimental storyline, smoky soul vocals, and charismatic piano-driven instrumentation perfumed with a jazzy/hip-hop nuance of blues.

“Pantone Home is essentially a walk through the duck egg blue house I grew up in. I’ve clearly inherited my mum’s obsession with color. My folks home is literally a rainbow and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m lucky enough to have been back to Wellington a lot more this year but I still miss it all the time so this one goes out to mum, dad, and our little blue house on the hill.” – Wallace

Wallace’s refreshing sound contains elements of jazz, blues, hip-hop, and soul. Her lyrics are influenced by literature, which is evident through the intricate wordplay she weaves to create poignant stories.

She has worked with Dutch legends Kraak & Smaak and Australian hip-hop staples Thundamentals. Also, she has toured and worked with Sampa The Great, laid vocals over Adventures of Godriguez’s beats, and works with Simon Cohen, the producer of Justin Bieber’s global pop hit, “Love Yourself”.

“Everything in the song is 100% true. Our lounge is in fact painted the most badass mustardy/limey-yellow. We watch the telly a bright red art deco lounge suite. Eat dinner on Crown Lynn plates in every pastel shade (one of the famous swans lives in our bathroom too). And try not to touch the exposed pink bates in the walls (sorry dad, I know you’ll finish renovations one day).” – Wallace

Wallace has toured with Little Simz, Masego, Jordan Rakei, Ngaiire, The Kite String Tangle, and Kllo. Also, she has played to crowds at Australian festivals such as Listen Out Festival, Lost Paradise, St Kilda Fest, and Hills Are Alive & Bigsound to name a few.

In conclusion, it’s safe to say that Wallace is definitely an artist you need to keep an ear out for in 2018 and beyond. Therefore, we recommend adding her “Pantone Home” single to your personal playlist.
