Skye Wallace works to compile all of the stark elements of the Canadian landscape into a sort of musical archive. Inspired by historical non-fiction and field recordings, particularly the esteemed National Parks Project, Skye’s songs are made out of stories that are hidden in plain sight. The resulting sound is both experimental, gritty, and orchestral.
Skye is currently residing, performing, and writing in Vancouver.
"This Is How We Go" was recorded over a broad span of months in 2012. The recording process for the project was very casual, and many of the musicians who played on the songs had only heard them a couple of times. This gave the album an improvisational quality, where the musicians could feel comfortable to play whatever they felt inspired to. Many of the songs are single takes of Skye singing and playing guitar simultaneously, displaying the true talent and musicianship that she possesses.
