In early November Wendy Burch Steel was nominated by the Northern California Bluegrass Society for Best Female Vocalist! The winner will be announced at the NCBS Bluegrass On Broadway Festival that will be held on Saturday, January 26, 2013. This is due to Wendy's stunning performance on her recently released debut CD “Open Wings” produced by Grammy winning Bluegrass icon Laurie Lewis.


 


Wendy's original material is a subtly textured and patterned blend of the most unique, haunting and sweet aspects of Americana, folk, blues, country and gospel music. Her lyrics and vocals transport the listener to a place of the heart and soul addressing the human conditions facing us all; love, joy, loss, deep grief, happiness and fanciful dreams.


Close your eyes, sink into your seat, submerge your senses and listen to Wendy's magical voice along with the incredible instrumental and vocal talents of her musical friends entertain you for one special evening!

Media Quotes:


From Bluegrass Breakdown: "Wendy's vocals have a warmth and presence that filters through the song lyrics. She can put a bluegrassy purr into a song and her "Happy Song Blues" has an attractive bounce with bass and fiddle along for the ride. Her "If I Had Wings" has a magical guitar accompaniment that floats under her lilting vocal."--Brenda Hough
