"Wendy Colonna is not just a singer-songwriter . . . she's a force of Nature" said Michael Corcran.

The Louisiana native has been recording and performing live since 1997 when she was signed to a small label in Lake Charles, LA her hometown. Since then, she has released five critically acclaimed studio albums and a live album and DVD recorded in the legendary club, Antone’s in Austin, TX.
