You could be forgiven for thinking that Wendy Ford is the original “Westchester Classic.” It was at this country club in New York State where she debuted before a packed house, aged seven. Faking her finest English accent, she sang The Perfect Nanny from Mary Poppins.

 

Since then, she has found a perfect way to bring smiles to a sea of faces with her warmth and humour as well as her rich vocals, and like her namesake from another classic, Peter Pan, she believes in a Never Never Land where dreams never grow old – and often expresses her idealism in song.

 

Wendy grew up singing in high school rock bands. She received some classical vocal training at Cornell University and appeared at Carnegie Hall, but was not a music major. Ever the rebel, Wendy fuelled the steady flicker of her own musical flame by fanning it in others, finding ways to showcase their talents, despite a frequent lack of support from their families.

 

Since kicking off her music career by winning an international country talent quest in Australia, Wendy relocated down under, appearing at Tamworth Country Festivals, Toyota Fishing Expos and venues all over Australia. In 2006 she returned to her native US to sing in Florida, earning a Florida Star award in 2010. She returned to Australia in 2012, but she remains a dual citizen and frequently visits the US.

 

Wendy released a debut band album, Eat This and Smile, but then took time out from her music to raise a family, opting instead to help nurture community talent through a radio show and promotion of local bands through a CD series. These pursuits kept her finger on the pulse of the music scene while she revelled in her role as parent and music teacher.

 

After receiving praise for working with trauma victims, intellectually challenged teens and the elderly, the healing power of music inspired Wendy to renew her commitment to share her gift.

 

Though Wendy’s voice has been compared to Joni Mitchell and Eva Cassidy with a touch of soul, she still receives the most gratification by bringing a smile to her listeners. Her songs, a melodic blend of country, Southern-rock and gospel-tinged blues, are provocative and inspiring, or sometimes just a foot-stomping good time.

 

You’ll be hearing more from Wendy as she is releasing tracks in the US and overseas on Diamondback and TSP Records, to name a couple. Oh, and she won’t have time to be a Perfect Nanny…she’ll be far too busy rockin’.
