Wallace & I Vanish

“… this is something altogether different and new…effortless trills lacing her honeyed vocals.”
– The Music
Wallace is a refreshing talent, whose music is a mosaic of jazz, blues, hip-hop and soul. Her trademark jazz-influenced, soulful vocal and magnetic presence are a marker of a dynamic artist who vibrantly creates music which showcases her absorbing vocals and clever songwriting. Her lyrics are often influenced by literature, evident through the intricate wordplay she weaves to create poignant stories. She comes from New Zealand’s strong breeding ground for neo-soul artists like Kimbra, Electric Wire Hustle, and Fat Freddy’s Drop, and her talents have seen her working with Dutch legends Kraak & Smaak, Australian hip-hop staples Thundamentals, touring and creating with young Zambian born, Australian-based rapper Sampa The Great, laying vocals over beats by Adventures of Godriguez, and working closely with producer Simon Cohen (producer of Justin Bieber’s global #1 Song “Love Yourself”).

Joining forces for a neo-psychedelic adventure, Ivan Jordan (Drums/ Sampler) and Nish Manjunath (Saxophone/ Explorer) form the electronic duo I Vanish who delve into the vanishing point between the past and the present; where improvised electronica revels with soulful excursions and free flowing exploration dances with driving rhythm. Ivan and Nish developed the collaboration project I Vanish after meeting at a 505 Funk jam session; taking influence from electro artists Seekae, Mount Kimbie and Shlomo, to explore the duo formation utilising Sensory Percussion by Sunhouse.
Joining them on vocals will be Donné, multidisciplinary artist with a big voice and a passion for storytelling.
