About a year ago (2016) we had a meeting in my office to discuss the various artists who had offered to do a set for us at the Summer NAMM show. The name of Alice Wallace came up. I hadn't heard of her before — yeah, I should get out more, we all know that — so after the meeting I looked her up on Youtube. Man, was I blown away! I called the guys back into the office, and said "If we can get her to sing at the booth, let's not miss the chance. She's the best new singer I've heard in years." I spent the rest of that afternoon surfing Youtube, listening to Alice Wallace.
Alice enlisted the help of another Shubb artist, Brian Ashley Jones, for her set at our booth at the 2016 Nashville show. They sang and played great, but we were having some problems with our new PA, and I'm afraid we didn't do them justice. Both consummate pros, they took it in stride and didn't hold it against us, but I told them we owed them one. Happily, we would get another chance.
At the following NAMM show (2107 Anaheim), both Alice and Brian were planning on being there. We asked them each to play a set at the booth. They gave us another chance, and by this time we had learned the intricacies of our PA mixer. Both sets sounded wonderful, as the large crowds that gathered will attest. Here are a couple of songs from Alice's set, accompanied by Brian Ashley Jones (guitar) and Austin Callender (bass).
