ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Gospel in her church choir to Classical music performed at the Kennedy Center, Wendy Hicks has blazed an exciting vocal career that has spanned more than 25 years. Her soulful, sultry, whispery sound continues to captivate audiences of all ages. Wendy’s unique style and business savvy make her a highly sought-after performer. In addition, as CEO of Flipside Entertainment, LLC, she is solidly committed to scouting and developing new talent in the Metropolitan Washington, DC area. A native Washingtonian, Wendy grew up with an appreciation for DC’s illustrious jazz legacy. Her latest project, The W.E.N.D.Y Project, is a group comprised of DC's finest musicians, also well-known in the area. The sound is coined as 'Soul Fusion' which is an appreciation of all genres of music that touches everyone's soul.

She was born into a family whose eclectic love of music exposed Wendy to other music genres as well. This is plainly evidenced in Wendy’s unique, “signature” style and allows Wendy to be at ease when performing with the legendary Charlie Hampton Trio or on various soundtracks, recordings and commercial projects. She has also had the honor of opening for the late powerhouse Vesta Williams in Philadelphia, PA.

Influences of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Natalie Cole, Angela Bofill, Minnie Ripperton and Phyllis Hyman are unmistakable when experiencing Wendy in concert. She is probably best known for her tribute medley to Phyllis Hyman. Always in demand, she can be found performing it in jazz clubs throughout the DC area. There are shades to Wendy’s sound that are unquestionably all her own.

Wendy’s musical philosophy is simple: “Give voice to your heart’s message in music and it will heal.” Anyone who has experienced Wendy live can attest to that message. About the connection audiences feel with her after a performance, Wendy says, “the stage offers the freedom of vulnerability and when you connect with at least one person, that’s pretty cool!” Wendy Hicks imbues her love for the art whenever she steps to the mic and has earned the unyielding respect and admiration of fans and industry veterans alike.
