"Just received an advance copy. Long-awaited follow-up to Honey, which I practically worn out thru replays. Worth the wait. Jeremy's voice sounds grittier than ever, the band is a streamroller, and the songs are first-rate. I'm not a huge fan of country blues, but Jeremy's singing and songcraft seem to transcend the genre. Can't wait to see him perform in 08. - WFMU, 91.1 FM

"DON WILCOX-The Record-Troy, NY."

"The best art is often dangerous, and Wallace's art is dangerous in the same way Lou Reed is dangerous. He writes so well, he almost makes you believe his self-destructive lifestyle is a romantic deal." - DON WILCOX-The Record-Troy, NY.

"CAFFE LENA, Saratoga Springs, NY"

"Wallace has emerged as one of the most exciting additions to our roster in recent years. Discovering his 'old school' whiskey-and-cigarette voice, vintage guitar, and unforgettable lyrics is pure heaven for anyone serious about American roots music." - CAFFE LENA, Saratoga Springs, NY

Dave Van Ronk once told Wallace: "You've got it in you to be a musician, but it doesn't mean anything. If there's anything else you can do besides this, do it. The business will break your heart."

Wallace didn't take the advice. His debut, "My Lucky Day", released on Palmetto Records, was an exploration of his influences - a little folk, a tinge of rock, some country and loaded with gritty blues. His second full length album, "She Used to Call Me Honey", was edgy, dangerous and with a greater emphasis on the raw energy of his craft.

This Autumn, Wallace emerged with a stunning album that both diverged from and complemented his previous material. "Suicide Suitcase" is a mix of original arrangements of traditional songs and new material. The collection is a reflection of Wallace's station in life: he has fallen in and out of love again, busted a few knuckles and bruised a couple of shins. Even though his loyal following will notice a certain wistfulness in the lyrics, they will also recognize a new confidence in Wallace's voice and guitar. His humor has gotten a little darker and the sound a little looser. Consciously unpolished, Suicide Suitcase promises to captivate old and new fans alike.

Wallace continues to perform solo and with his trio. Look for "Suicide Suitcase" on sale at, or at a live Wallace gig near you.
