Alice Wallace to release new album “Here I Am”

Nashville-based singer-songwriter Alice Wallace has announced the release of her latest album ‘Here I Am’, on 28th June 2024 via Mule Kick Records. The record is her first since moving to Nashville four years ago from southern California, some five years since its predecessor ‘Into The Blue’. It was recorded in two days with no rehearsal and produced by Nick Buda, whose credits include Taylor Swift, Martina McBride and Dolly Parton. Musicians deployed in the studio include Buda on drums, guitarist Kenny Greenberg (Willie Nelson, Wynonna Judd, Hayes Carll), bassist Ted Pecchio (Doyle Bramhall II, Susan Tedeschi), and keyboardist Jimmy Wallace (The Wallflowers).

‘Here I Am’ marks a return to themes of self-examination whereas previous records featured predominantly story songs. “I needed to make a record that was really true to myself, both for me and for my fans who have encouraged me in ways I am so grateful for,” she explains. “Songs are how I process. And writing this album helped me process so much of what has happened in the last few years.”

Since releasing her last album, Wallace’s life has changed immensely – a cross-country move, a career unexpectedly halted in 2020, falling in love more deeply than before, and being heartbroken more painfully than she ever knew she could be. “All of those changes gave me a chance to examine myself in ways I never had. This album covers a spectrum of emotion I haven’t been brave enough to share on an album before,” she continues. “This is album is me.”

Wallace has released a lead single ‘Letting It Go’.  The song is about processing and moving on from the things that have hurt you deeply. “The older I get, the more I realise how often I have hung onto past hurts, and how much it affects me,” says Wallace. “This song was very cathartic to write – letting go of the past leaves room for all the good things still to come.”
