About the Event
When Alice Wallace picked up and moved to Nashville in December 2019 from her longtime home in Southern California, she could never have predicted that three months later the world would come to a grinding halt. But the Americana singer/songwriter, whose early 2019 album "Into the Blue" earned her accolades from across the country and the world, used the time in lockdown to start a brand new duo project with her friend Caitlin Cannon called Side Pony. Side Pony released their debut album "Lucky Break" in October of 2021 to rave reviews and spent the better part of a year and a half zigzagging across the country on tour, including stages at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival, the Hudson West Folk Festival, and even tours through England and Spain. And now that the world is regaining a sense of normalcy, Alice is getting prepared to release a new solo record to feature the many songs she's written since moving to Nashville - songs about coming to love her new home in Tennessee, songs about navigating her life as a touring artist and the relationships that come and go as a result, and songs that truly tap into what Alice does best when she stands on a stage behind a microphone. "Wallace’s voice is a powerful natural occurrence...an awe-striking wonder of the West," said Saving Country Music. Back in 2017, Alice was named the Female Vocalist of the Year at the California Country Awards. Her vocal power and control is one of the first things noted in every review she ever receives, and this new batch of songs puts that power on full display . Her vocal style draws influence from iconic voices ranging from Linda Ronstadt to Patsy Cline, not to mention keeping the country yodel alive with songs from classic artists like Patsy Montana and Don Walser.
Joining Alice will be fiddle player Xander Hitzig. Hailing from the mountains of West Virginia but now residing on Maui, Xander is almost solely self taught, but you’d never know it to hear his incredible proficiency on fiddle, guitar, and tenor banjo. Using the music of his inspirations as his guide, Xander has been recording and touring back and forth across the U.S. for more than a decade with multiple bands and as a solo artist. His latest project with his girlfriend Nicole Olney, Desert Hollow, was described as “A refreshing blend of old-timey country folk, blood harmonies, knee-slapping hoedowns” by Pop Matters.
