With a reputation for being one of the finest singer/ songwriters ever seen, Wendy Matthews has a expressive voice that never fails to move those who hear it. Her music is an unhurried journey of clean melodies, infectious energy and simple grace. Born in Montreal, Canada, Wendy…

left home as a teenager, joined her first band and busked her way across the USA to Los Angeles. There she met Glenn Shorrock who invited her to tour with him in Australia in 1982. She immediately became an in-demand session singer, appearing on many commercial jingles and became a semi-permanent member of the band. She also sang on albums by Jimmy Barnes, Tim Finn, Richard Clapton and Icehouse. In 1987, Wendy collaborated with Kate Ceberano on the ABC-TV soundtrack for the series ‘Stringer’. Over the years since then, Wendy has performed at some of the most prestigious musical events world-wide, from the Montreaux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, live TV specials in Asia, MIDEM in Cannes, to performing in front of over 40,000 people on the steps of the Sydney Opera House. Her tours play to full houses in both regional and capital city theatres. She has been awarded seven ARIAS, many times been voted Best Female Artist, Best Debut Single and Best Female Singer and can claim a massive 19 singles and 7 top selling albums. This is exemplified by the reality that Wendy’s music is now in more than 1 million homes in Australia – all her albums to date have multi-platinum status. www.wendymatthews.com Saturday 8.00pm October 20, 2012
