JOE’s Song Of The Day #826 – Wallis Bird ‘Brutal Honesty’

Dave Hanratty

Wallis Bird JOE Song of the Day

A striking return.

Wallis Bird has long soared as one of Ireland’s most fearless and adventurous songwriters, so her re-emergence is very welcome news indeed.

Having produced a superb record in 2016’s Home, the Wexford native returns with the stirring and frank ‘Brutal Honesty’ – we didn’t lie about the ‘frank’ bit, and neither does she – which boasts the usual Bird intricacies and innovations.

One to replay and reflect upon, particularly as the nights start to get a tiny bit colder.
