Into the Blue marks Wallace’s debut on the brand-new Rebelle Road label, an imprint founded by a trio of women dedicated to strengthening the California Country music community and expanding visibility for female artists in the Americana/roots genre. Since turning to music full-time in 2013, she performs some 200 dates a year. Texas songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard called her songcraft “stunning” and pundits agree: she won the 2017 Female Vocalist of the Year at the California Country Awards and the previous year’s Best Country/Americana Artist at the L.A. Music Critic Awards.
Into the Blue represents Wallace’s evolution as a recording artist, showcasing a fuller sound, backed by some of Americana’s most distinctive players. Co-produced by Steve Berns and Rebelle Road’s studio veteran, songwriter and musician KP Hawthorn, the album credits include drummer Jay Bellerose (Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Aimee Mann), bassist Jennifer Condos (Jackson Browne, Graham Nash), guitarist Tom Bremer, Kaitlin Wolfberg on strings, and keys and pedal steel from Jeremy Long (Sam Outlaw).
