"Wendy Colonna is not just a singer-songwriter . . . she's a force of Nature" said Michael Corcran. With a sound adorned in American-roots traditions, Wendy Colonna's signature songwriting and sultry voice make her style unmistakable and contagious. On the strength of her powerful performing abilities and resonant voice she can swing from soul-shout gospel to front porch ballads, from empowering funky anthems to dark, swampy narratives. 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. She was voted “Best Singer-Songwriter” in Austin and is a multi-award winning artist whose work has also been featured in commercials and films(http://www.sonicbids.com/2/EPK/?epk_id=19333).
