“I feel I tell stories and we’re all in this together, so I just have to hope there are people who can relate,” says songstress Wendy Matthews.
“For me, music heals and helps and moves the maker and the listener.”
The Canadian-born Aussie singer has had stints in ’80s bands Models and Absent Friends and has released many hit singles –Token Angels, Let’s Kiss (Like Angels Do), and The Day You Went Away to name a few – and albums as a solo artist.
Her voice has been called ‘to the vocal chords what the Daintree is to the wilderness’ and, while that may sound cryptic, when you hear her sing you’ll get the meaning.
Rock music historian Ian McFarlane says she provides “extraordinary, crystal-clear vocals […] a soulfulness that was the mark of a truly gifted singer”.
In short, Wendy’s voice is absolutely phenomenal, and she’ll stop you in your tracks when she plays her hits The Day You Went Away and Nobody But You. We can’t see Wendy Matthews sing live this year, but this is the next best thing and a few moments you’ll treasure.
