Wallis Bird is one of the happy discoveries from this year's SXSW, a singer, songwriter, and musician from Ireland who matches the musicality of her songs with an uncommon level of energy. She sang "To My Bones" in Austin and it left me feeling that I had just heard maybe the most optimistic and exuberant song ever. It's included in her new album, New Boots,which has just been released in Ireland with releases in other countries planned soon. Enjoy the video, this is an artist with enormous potential.
