“This is Premiere Division song writing. Add to that a glorious voice and faultless production-values, this has all the hallmarks of a winner indelibly etched into it from the get-go”. - Simon Redley, Music Republic Magazine- UK

American singer songwriter Wendy Webb releases her fifth studio album "Step Out Of Line" in Europe to critical acclaim. Songs written under a Nashville skyline with an urban attitude attracted legendary musicians Wayne Jackson, David Grissom, Mark T. Jordan, Willie Weeks and Dan Dugmore to record with Webb. The record consists of nine original songs along with a haunting electric piano rendition of Bob Dylan’s ‘Girl From The North Country’, a stunning tribute that pays homage to her Midwestern roots. The recordings took place in a private residence in Nashville where Webb co-wrote and produced with engineer Mark Keller.

Webb says, “Having a house in town made the recording more organic and convenient for studio players to stop by after their day sessions to play on what I thought were some artful demos. Imagine the thrill of hearing Wayne Jackson, founding member of the Memphis Horns, blow that incredible trumpet solo on ‘Step Out Of Line’ in the living room, and know you captured that performance. Jim Horn played sax on ‘Destiny’s Muse’ in the dining room. I sang and played piano on Dylan’s ‘Girl From The North Country’ live in the living room and Dan Dugmore added the gorgeous pedal steel solo. Each musician’s contribution was over the top. It was an extraordinary experience and exciting.”

Originally from Iowa and self-taught on guitar and piano, Wendy moved to Los Angeles where she was fortunate to meet Joni Mitchell’s engineer, Henry Lewy, who offered her studio time and mentoring. She recalls, “That’s when I learned about recording and my own performance”. Webb has recorded in Cuba at Radio Progreso Havana, played the Bitter End and Café Vivaldi in New York and Harry’s Bar in Paris. In 2015 Wendy received a standing ovation after performing for the Florida House in Washington D.C. She continues to perform in concert for sold out crowds at BIG ARTS Strauss Theater in Sanibel, Florida, and has received honors in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the Lilith Fair Songwriting Competition.
