Cool artists I have known #4: Wendy Colonna

Wendy Colonna


The last time I saw Wendy she was just a young freshthing back at Scholars’ College. Turn around a decade later and she’s a successful performer! The Austin-American Statesman recently named Wendy the city’s best singer-songwriter, and if you’ve ever been to Austin you know what kind of competition she’s up against. Her voice has just the right combination of clarity and grit, and both her songs and the band’s performances are solidly in the American blues-rock tradition. For a streaming album and some clips of their performances at Antone’s and elsewhere, follow the link to Wendy’s website.
