Wendy’s songs tell tales of empowerment, loss, mortality, joy, reclaimed innocence and celebration. Her resonant, signature, grit-infused-honey voice can moves from a sweet whisper to a full-on bayou-soul-shout without skipping a beat.
Since her move from Louisiana to Central Texas in 2000, Wendy Colonna has released eight acclaimed studio albums. Wendy has garnered critical acclaim from multiple outlets including the New York Times (describing her music as “ethereal”), received a 2016 Black Fret Major Grant and she was selected as a 2017 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalist. Her song, “A Happy Song,” custom-written for a Coca-Cola Ad hit the top of AdWeek and her track “My Southwest Louisiana Home,” written for Southwest Louisiana Tourism took home several ADDY awards.
