Jazz vocals meet feminist ideals in Wallace’s new single ‘Jane Doe’
Neo-soul vocalist WALLACE has shared her latest single ‘Jane Doe’, making it her first release for what’s bound to be an exciting 2019 for the Sydney-based Kiwi artist.
Following a handful of acclaimed singles, Wallace is continually solidifying herself as one to watch, with ‘Jane Doe’ being no exception to her talent. With captivating lyrics and hints of jazz influence, ‘Jane Doe’ is a call to women to unashamedly find their name and claim their place through the exploration of feminist concepts and true crime stories.
On the inspiration of the song, Wallace says “I had the many mantras of a podcast I’m obsessed with, ‘My Favourite Murderer’ running through my mind while writing the lyrics. They implore women to “F*ck Politeness” in uncomfortable situations and trust your intuition when your inner alarm is going off.”
Produced in Berlin’s infamous Jazzanova Studios by Dennis Neuer, ‘Jane Doe’ embraces the next step in Wallace’s evolution as a songwriter that carries a vibrant blend of soul, hip-hop and pop. Her magnetic presence and clear-cut vocals have also landed her some sweet support slot opportunities with artists such as Masego, Jordan Rakei, Winston Surfshirt and upcoming shows with I Know Leopard this May/June.
Bridging between genres and influence, ‘Jane Doe’ is confident and intriguing, leaving you in awe with every listen. Check it out below:
