bio

“Wendy’s voice is engaging, playful, and her interpretations of
traditional jazz music are creative and refreshing. 
Wendy's keen ability
to improvise words, phrases and more importantly to engage an audience
are a rare gift
 that I have had the pleasure of experiencing first hand,
having shared the stage with her numerous times." 

- Bret Higgins – Toronto Bassist/Composer

The Princess Margaret Hospital's
 Music in the Atrium Program for a number of years,
and has always delivered engaging and entertaining performances."

- Heather Hardie – Manager, Volunteer Resources – Princess Margaret Hospital
