  Alice Wallace
with Steve Ornest

It is with great pleasure that we once again find the opportunity to share one of this year’s Folk Alliance International, FAR West premier showcase artists with you.  Only twelve musical groups or solo artists are chosen out of scores of submissions.  Alice Wallace was one of the twelve and she now joins those who graced our living room, as we opened the 2018-2019 Música Del Río season.  As a polished singer/songwriter, Alice has been compared to a wide range of artists from Emmylou Harris to Patsy Cline.  And she will be opening our musical new year on Friday, January 11 with well known LA guitarist and producer Steve Ornest.

Alice’s impeccable vocals and melodic, literate song-crafting skills bring a fresh touch with what is widely considered authentic Americana music.  Her fourth album, "Into the Blue" will be released in late January, but Alice as promised to share it with us.  Her 2015 release “Memories, Music & Pride” was recognized at the LA Music Critic Awards for Best Country/Americana album. And she has shared the stage with artists such as Wynonna Judd, Lee Ann Womack, JD Souther, Albert Lee, and Suzy Bogguss.

Steve Ornest often joins Alice in her live engagements.  Steve is one of the most highly regarded session artists on the West Coast.  Born into a musical family, Steve began playing guitar at the age of six. The diversity of his work is remarkable.  He has had the privilege of working with artists such as the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, the San Diego Philharmonic and Foreigner.

We are very glad that Alice and Steve will be here together to begin our musical new year at Música Del Río.  Please join us in welcoming them here.
