Needle Drop: William Russell Wallace, “Understanding”

SoCal based singer-songwriter William Russell Wallace crafts the kind of hard-hitting, poetically nuanced songs that immediately invite you into his world. The man we encounter in this place is in a reflective state, looking back at his young adult life with a sense of compassion and a tinge of regret.

Wallace fronted several other bands before striking out on his own, and lived the kind of life that revolved around drinking, drugs, and chasing women. This culminated in a car crash and, eventually, a stint in rehab, which is where he tracked the bones of “Understanding.”

The song is flush with beauty and pain, with a tasteful harmony to drive the heart-wrenching chorus home.

The official debut album from Wallace, Dirty Soul, arrives in stores on April 8th.
