She is known for her smooth, soulful delivery of contemporary R&B songs with splashes of jazz and neo-soul thrown in for good measure.
Wendy is also known for her songwriting abilities, having written or co-written every song on her debut EP, The.Anthem, released in 2009.
The.Anthem fluently conveys the artistry of the woman, through an introspective collection of R&B songs of varying tempos and themes.
Back In The Day
The EP is a “life” soundtrack of sorts, beginning with the DeAndre Shaifer-produced Back in the Day, a mid-tempo, retro-influenced track with catchy guitar rifts, and Marvin Gaye-esque vocal arrangements.
This song takes listeners on a journey through days past, hopes and dreams realized, love lost and found, and new possibilities on the horizon. Back in the Day is destined to be the jam of the summer, clearly a prelude to sunshine and good times.
Wendy’s emotive alto and range are fully displayed on the soaring ballad The Difference, quite possibly this generation’s love ballad. The song, a nod to soul ballads of old, imparts the story of love; found and cherished.
Produced by Carl Rushing, it pairs her honey-coated alto with a simple melody, sparse instrumentation and airy background vocals.
“The Anthem” @ Storytellers (Quill’s Farewell)
On Night & Day, the jazzy ode to finding new love, Wendy’s sassy and ethereal vocals with production help by Grammy-nominated producer James McKinney (Wayna, KevO) provide the perfect scenario for this anthology of soul.
The.Anthem, the title and final track, is laced with a funky bass line, gritty vocal performance and soul-sister affirmation. This feel-good declaration and call to “keep going strong”, leaves listeners primed for more…until the next soulful collection arrives.
Wendy has performed at various venues including: Twins Jazz, Old Post Office Pavilion, Teavolve, Indulj, Eden’s Lounge, SIP Lounge (NYC).
Also events such as Mad Jazz Poetry, NCNW’s Black Family Reunion Celebration, Can A Sista Rock A Mic, AFRAM and Artscape to name a few. Most recently she was featured on Gypsy Soul’s; “Ear Candy, Volume 2”.
