Wendy Barmore

Wendy Whitaker entered the New York music scene while still in her teens, regularly playing in several landmark Manhattan Watering holes, impressing CBS Records and New York critics with her voice and youthful soul. She teamed with Michael Bonagura and Alan LeBoeuf in a popular trio that toured the tri-state NY area in the early-1970’s. After, Wendy left for the band Paragon and co-wrote songs with Lynne Robinson (maiden name Cogan and previous married name as Cunningham).

With Paragon, she enjoyed a successful run, touring the New York/New Jersey area. Then, Wendy moved to Florida and played regularly at places like the old, “Tobacco Road” and “The Elbow Room”.

She then flew to Los Angeles and joined, “Pickering and McClure” which was renamed “Stinson Reliant" with Nigel Pickering (Spankie and Our Gang) and the renowned steel guitar studio musician, Marc McClure. While in the Los Angeles area, she toured with Cecilio and Kapono and worked with various artists. In California Wendy co-wrote many songs with Dore Rovinsky and to date is still collaborating with her.

The group which was renamed to Kasmir, moved to Boulder Colorado to work on a recording project with the legendary producer, Jim Mason in mid 80’s. The Group completed the project which to this day can still hold it's own.

Wendy moved back to New York City to write and play at many clubs in the Manhattan area while raising her young son, Mackenna McClure up to the early 90’s. As a single parent, Wendy moved back to Florida to have more family around and continued playing in various clubs in the Ft. Lauderdale and Miami area.

Wendy now resides on the West Coast of Florida near Clearwater. She has just released her CD “Ride”, collaboration with guitarist, Johnny Greenwell. Keep your ears and eyes open because you have not heard the last of this talented Lady.
