ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It doesn't take much time in listening to Wendisue's music before you can rest assured that she's here to stay. A true vessel of Funk and Soul with a twist of Jazz, make the possibilities of her musical journey endless.

Keeping with the genre of artists including D'Angelo, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, Wendisue prepares her music as food for the soul. The songs on HomeGrown are a reflection of some of her strongest influences including Donny Hathaway, Chaka Khan and Ella Fitzgerald. Most influential however is her father, Ellis Hall, former lead singer with Tower of Power, who taught her to indulge in her passion rather than run from it. It was because of that passion that Wendisue was able to Produce, Write and Record the majority of the music on HomeGrown in her home studio. (Thus the title of the EP)

From the Funk driven, HipHop based single, 'The Sickness' to the Soulful lullaby, 'The LaLa Song' Wendisue poetically covers the territories of life and loving with a refreshing outlook that makes you hungry for more.

Heres What Music Connection had to say:
Vol. XXVIII. No.16 8/2/04 to 8/15/04

"A self-produced five-song disc from this artist has a heady mix of soul, funk, jazz and very good singing that (on "Suffer the Loss" a honey sweet love song) makes us think of India Arie and Jill Scott. Meanwhile, "Funky Road" evokes comparisons to Lauryn Hill. "The LaLa Song" is a soothing, laidback, seductive track that convinces us that this artist's skills as a vocalist, songwriter and producer are for real. Music Supervisors might like her ready-to-go product."

This HomeGrown Talent Is Way Past Cool!
THE SICKNESS coursing through the veins of contemporary music appears to be incurable; seemingly immune to the advancement of Neo-musicology, MAYBE. Somewhere - out there, HOMEGrown talent Wendisue is walking the FUNKY ROAD between now and soon. Now she's just a small town waiting for a skyscraper to be built, but soon she'll become a big city having one built for her very own. So as things go, please let me not SUFFER THE LOSS any longer from not hearing more from this very talented artist because I truly needed THE LALA SONG in my life.

Sizzler!
The state of commericial radio has music purists clamoring to find sounds that touch the soul. As the current formulaic production of our RnB flatlines, there are still a few artistic gems which present with an unheralded appeal. By virtue of my occupation I have been fortunate enough to "discover" a diva to be. WendiSue's stellar debut titled "Homegrown" is the aural equivalent of an appetizer that fills and satisfies. Replete with excellent melody, funky beats and rhythm that flows, it is a crisp cornucopia of melody we can all appreciate. Those who know my tastes will accept my testimony that "Suffer the Loss" and "The Sickness" are two tracks which merit heavy rotation. We hope that this is only the beginning, an independent release reinforcing the Nu, the Neo, the Soul Movement. Label it what you wish but if your commercial RnB falls short, you owe it to yourself to add some zest to your collection. "Homegrown" will do more than whet the appetite, it will fulfill.

A breath of fresh air in a world of stench
Wendisue a HomeGrown star. In a world of stench and samples, this producer, songwriter, artist has quenched the worlds thirst for real music. Joining a class of artists such as Musiq, Jill Scott, India Arie, and others of like caliber. This is a must have CD for music enthusiasts. You will not skip a track.
