Wendy Matthews (band)
2012 looks to be a very exciting year. It marks the beginning of a new era for Wendy Matthews the singer / songwriter. With a new original album “ The Welcome Fire ” due for an August 2012 release. Wendy has written or co-written ( Megan Washington & Josh Pyke ) every track on the album. This will be by far her most personable collection for songs yet. From the very start of her career Wendy has had an immense talent and capacity to capture and define a diverse range of styles in her music. She takes songs from every genre and makes them her own, from jazz to blues, from rock to gospel, from soul to outright infectious pop and then, of course, there are the beautiful ballads.
Wendy is adept at reaching both frenetic youth and mature audiences alike. If older ears are captured by her soul and unfazed class, a more cynical youth is convinced by her disarming ease of delivery, wooed by a voice of stunning emotive capacity yet void of sentimentality.
This outstanding capability has ensured the strength of her following – not only with the public but also the music industry. To date Wendy has won seven ARIAS.
Simply put, Wendy Matthews has a reputation for having one of the finest voices ever. As Midnight Oil frontman, Peter Garrett, says when he eloquently describes her abilities: “Wendy’s voice is to the vocal chords what the Daintree is to the wilderness”.
