British pop vocalist Wallis has just unveiled her latest single called “Pleasures”, an R&B-infused pop tune approaching the themes of female empowerment and freedom. It’s a rallying call to girls everywhere to live their best life.
The song has flavours of both American and UK current pop and urban music styles, and uses a combination of sampled and live instruments, to retain the feel of a live musician. It’s another great showcase for Wallis’s remarkable vocals.
“Pleasures” is Wallis’s third offering. Her debut single “Never Gonna Be” was featured on Spotify’s popular releases, and was chosen as Tom Salmon’s BBC introducing track of the week on BBC Radio Cumbria before being picked for national airplay on BBC Radio introducing hosted by Hew Stephens. Its follow-up single “Attitude”, (feat. DunD) was track of the week on BBC introducing, and received wide radio coverage.
Wallis grew up in a small town in the North West of England. She showed a real talent for singing from an early age and at just 13 she moved to London to become a full-time student at the Sylvia Young Theatre School. She then attended the prestigious Brit School.
Her singing is heavily influenced by her vocal powerhouse icons such as Ariana Grande, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, but her music also combines very contemporary pop with urban genres such as rap, grime and trap.
