ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wendy Webb has performed in Cuba, Paris and New York. Frequently compared to artists such as Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, Emmy Lou Harris, Laura Nyro and Carole King, Webb effortlessly weaves poetic lyrics and elements of folk, jazz and blues into a classic style all her own. Ms. Webb’s debut CD “Morning In New York”, released in 2003, was a privately produced collaborative that won critical acclaim. The record features world renown musicians Jim Horn, David Grissom, Glenn Worf, Dan Dugmore, David Pomeroy, Jonathan Yudkin, Sam Bacco. Ms.Webb has received honors in both the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and in the Lilith Fair Songwriting Competition. Lyrics to three of her compositions appear in the novel “Dark Light” by New York Times best selling author Randy Wayne White. Wendy Webb has performed in concert at the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center in Ft Myers, BIG ARTS Strauss Theater Sanibel, FL ., the Center For The Arts Bonita Springs and for the annual CREW benefit concert.



“Morning In New York”, was a privately produced, limited-run CD. The recording was made with Mark Keller, and some talented musician friends. As you can see, the reviews were beyond anyone's wildest expectations!


REVIEWS:

"The songs are heart sprung, tender and tough, fragile and enduring. Some are jazzy, sung with sass and echoes of Carole King and Ricky Lee Jones. Others are moody, full of wee hours wisdom, or yearning and soul stirring, soaring toward heights flown by the likes of Joni Mitchell and Emmy Lou Harris. Webb is a newcomer whose music is mined in the timeless chambers of the human heart."

--Steven Dougherty, senior writer, People Magazine

*******************************

"The angelic range and hard-grit soul of Wendy Webb's voice rivals that of Emmy Lou Harris. Who would have thought that in our lifetime there would be another with a talent so pure."

--Lorian Hemingway, author of “Walk On Water”

*******************************

“Laura Nyro lives! I mean that as the highest compliment. What a pleasure to listen to Wendy Webb play her piano and sing her breathtaking songs. I could go on hours talking about her complex lyrics, but it is the sound of her voice that I find so haunting, the achingly beautiful voice of real experience. This seems to me real heartfelt music -- an endangered species in today's lets-make-a-quick-buck popular culture -- from a woman who has lived a full life asking those adult questions of herself and of the people she loves, not at high noon when it is always easy to put a smiley face on matters, but long after midnight when the shadows remain hidden.

I'm bowled over by Wendy Webb.”

--Jeff Klinkenberg, columnist for St. Petersburg Times

*******************************

“Wendy Webb’s precise vocal nuances breathe life and meaning into her new CD with such winners as “Shadows and the Fire,” an intricate sojourn into the ultimate contrasts of darkness and flame. Her songwriting prowess leads to disarmingly intimate confessions such as “You were chasing my disguise/Such a tattered naked lie."

Wendy’s her own woman with her own way of bending the notes and twisting the words into lyrics that plummet deep into the epicenter of those who love or at least try to love. Her messages wander from musical to mystical, from juiced to jaded, as her creative honesty lures the listener simultaneously into both her heart and her hurt. “Fantasia Extreme,” for example, shimmers with this revelation: “This time it really brought me down/and I ain’t never flown this close to the ground.”

“In the title cut, Webb dissects the dual entities of the Big Apple and the relationships that are the core of her life, examines them with forensic fervor, and reconstructs the city and herself in the process.”

These musical portraits stretch the canvas of life with vignettes that range from dark images that would do a latter day Van Gogh proud to gentle Andrew Wyeth style landscapes that color “Paradise Street.”

“This is not only survival of the fittest, it’s survival of the finest – warts, worries and wonders jumbled in a mixed bag of despair, hope, laughter and tears. The beautiful chanteuse renders it all with the rare ability to alter viewpoints and change perceptions within the limited real time of a CD.”

“Bolstered by a style that vacillates from down-home funk to uptown opera, Wendy Webb displays a special talent that deserves to be discovered and cherished.”

-- Gerry Wood, former Editor-in-Chief, Billboard, New York City and author of “Tales From Country Music”, Nashville

******************************

"Wendy Webb's evocative voice and resonant lyrics, sung over deceptively complex compositions, are nothing less than haunting".

--Tim Cahill is Founding Editor, Outside Magazine, Contributing Editor, Rolling Stone

Webb's music is addictive
At a concert of Wendy Webb's last month, a number of people I met there raved about Morning in New York. I ordered it as soon as I could. The CD is a great collection of songs...very addictive.

A lost artist who has finally been discovered
The music on this CD is amazingly intoxicating and yet soothing to the listener. Wendy has matured in every artistic way and this CD shows the world what I've known to be true for many years. This CD is just the beginning for Wendy Webb. She will only get better!

Beautiful, honest, haunting, ...an amazing artist at her peak
This is a magnificent production. Ranging from soothing strings & poignant, honest lyrics to jazzy sax and piano. This woman's voice is strikingly beautiful with an intuitive sense of how to use it. I am thrilled to find a real artist in the realm of Joni Mitchell & Laura Nyro still creating intelligent, picturesque music. A must have!

A provocative and beautiful new voice
This is my first exposure to Wendy Webb, and I was instantly impressed. She brings to mind influences from Joni Mitchell to Maria Muldaur to Suzanne Vega with a style that is still her own and not at all derivative. Her lyrics also recall different periods in Joni's music yet are very much Wendy Webb's own. The arrangements are consistently fine throughout. Highly recommended.

The best CD I've heard in over a year.
No kidding, this is an absolutely fabulous CD. You tell me why this woman is not being played on every Public Radio jazz/pop station or similarly adult listening station...probably because the purveyors of CD's believe we over 40's aren't important enough to count. They should remember that we buy CD's rather than stealing them over the net. Everyone of these cuts is good, most are absolutely superb. Yes, one could compare to other artists and it would be complimentary, but that really isn't necessary. Webb's voice stands alone. Her music is haunting but also sensual...strong, but not overtly sexual. If this CD isn't mood evocative, nothing is!

Wendy Webb -- a writer of the first magnitude
Wendy Webb is an artist of the 1st magnitude. A stunning voice; a brilliant writer. Anyone who buys this CDs joins a small, select club. The ground floor of a gifted talent.

Utterly and completely fantastic
This, coming from a musician operating in a sinmilar but slightly removed genre, you can take it from me when I tell you this is a wonderful amalgam of diverse influences. Influences stirred and mixed into a mature style of such substance, as to be very difficult to categorize. Folk oriented, jazz tinged, songs with clear lyrics, wonderful melodies, interesting harmonies, and particularly well crafted arrangements. I listen over and over and over again. Each time satisfied. And yet, still intrigued. So, I listen again.

Who is this woman?
I found mention of Ms. Webb on the web page of a Florida novelist. Ordered the CD through a friend. Thought it would be just one more garage band piece of floatsom, but trusted the novelist who recommended this amazing talent. I am knocked over, maybe in love (there is no photo of Ms. Webb on her CD) but I am definitely in awe of this great lady and her literate, articulate talent. I listen to "SUMMER" over and over. Ms. Webb is one of the few undiscovered great talents. Ms. Webb, I'd love to hear from you via e-mail. At the risk of sounding like a groupie, I am a single professional, and live an active, interesting, international life. Lots of travel, fitness, and outdoor activities. Michael D. MD

Really enjoy this CD
I am generally hard to please but I really enjoy this CD. It's great for entertaining, floating in the pool and driving cross country. I will be watching for her next CD.
