About The Event

Wendy Colonna is a seasoned troubadour and a new mother who hails from the gulf

coast of Louisiana and has called central Texas home since 2000. The Austin-American

Statesman calls her “a force of nature” and the New York Times cited her sound as

“ethereal.”

Wendy's songs echo soulful tales of joy, reclaimed innocence, joy, loss 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.

Tracks from Wendy’s most recent release "No Moment But Now” (2017) were

simultaneously featured on Apple· Music's "Hot Tracks" and "Breaking Singer

Songwriter playlist, and Spotify's "Fresh Folk" playlist. In 2016, Wendy received a Black

Fret Major Grant and in 2017 she was selected as a Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk

Finalist.

In January 2017, Wendy was invited to lend her uplifting, anthemic songs to to the

Austin Women's March with 60,000 in attendance. She was also invited to emcee and

perform Austin's Earth Day Festivities. Wendy has had the honor of sharing the stage

with legends like Mavis Staples, Delbert McClinton, Edgar Winter, Jeff Buckley and

more.

In addition to her live-performance career, Wendy has been writing and producing

award-winning custom songs for advertisement for clients like Coca-Cola and

Southwest Louisiana Visitors Bureau. The Coca-Cola song, "A Happy Song" topped

AdWeek upon its debut and "My Southwest Louisiana Home" took home several ADDY

awards.

Wendy currently lives in San Marcos Texas with her husband, mother, two amazing

step-children and her baby boy, Charlie. On top of touring, family and regional

performances she and collaborator, Mark Addison are the owners of Tips Concerts, a

house-concert venue in southeast Austin where they host fall and spring shows.
