WALLIS has been dazzling audiences with her musical skills since she was a young child. Raised in Philadelphia, she got her first taste of performing arts at the tender age of two when her parents took her to see “Peter Pan” the musical. Mesmerized by the performance, WALLIS immediately declared that performing was what she wanted to do with her life. Delving into the local choir and theatre landscape eventually led to WALLIS being cast in a production of Annie at The Walnut Street Theatre, on the very stage she saw her first show. Growing up with a musician for a father meant a steady stream of musical friends visiting their home and having impromptu performances, which she often joined. A songwriter by 9 years old, WALLIS became a paid performer singing cover songs in local theatres and cabarets by the time she was 12. As she approached junior high school, WALLIS decided to study her craft full time, pleading with her parents for the opportunity to audition for a performing arts charter school over an hour away from their home, to which she was accepted and now attends as a sophomore.
WALLIS recently released her newest single "Another Day" on June 25th, 2021. This song was the much anticipated follow up to the teen sensation's 2020 viral hit "Lonely Christmas" which amassed over one million views on Youtube. Co-written with her father, Gene Schriver, "Another Day" was recorded at their Pennsylvania home and at the famed Criteria Studios in Miami with Grammy winning engineer Carlos Alvarez. "Another Day" features vocals from Maren and Soleil Schirver and appearances from bassist Julio Hernandez (Barry Gibbs), trombonist Steve Sigmund (Ray Charles) and Cisco Dimas (K.C. and the Sunshine Band) on trumpet.
Following the success of "Lonely Christmas," WALLIS made television appearances nationwide, was playlisted on NPR's New Music Friday, included in Paste Magazine's holiday sampler, featured on TODAY.com, shared by Ellen DeGeneres on social media, and has been covered by dozens of news and media outlets around the world.
