ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When Wallace takes the stage, it is as though he has saved up all of his demons only to release them during the course of his musical set... and then calmly walk back stage back to the ordinary. Musically, Wallace seethes, rages and laments, finding tremendous emotional peaks and valleys using only his tenor voice, harmonica and acoustic guitar. Whether he begins a set in hushed tones or with a rock and roll howl, he immediately perks up the ears of everyone within earshot.

Combine the brooding sultriness of Jim Morrison with a post-grunge take on the Neil Young album Rust and you have Wallace's Playing With Fire. It presents a very accurate depiction of a live Wallace set, which proves to be organic, warm and alive, riveting in its own stark musical space and rife with exorcisms.

Wallace, born and raised in rural New England is a New York City based singer/songwriter currently promoting his self-released album Playing With Fire.

"Everything in a fiendish moderation," Wallace said, "I feel like getting all my demons out today."

Amazing Range
This new EP by Wallace is excellent, his best yet -- I've been a fan for years and am so impressed by how fresh his sound still is. The EP starts out with a fast-paced, foot-stomping ride of a song, followed by two great, mid-tempo hits and two slow-paced ballads. What's amazing about Wallace is his versatility and range -- his ability to go from rocking to soulful, from playful to somber. Each instrument (including his voice) is played with mastery and with an aim to transport the listener to another place and time, reminiscent of old-school rock and roll. Love this album.
