With a degree in Mechanical engineering, Wendy combined working in both music and engineering consultancy before the pull of music was too strong. She has been performing as a jazz pianist singer for over 15 years and has performed all over the UK. She released her debut album ‘Piano Divas’ in March 2017 explaining that she ‘wanted to create something that would celebrate the fabulous women of jazz throughout the decades and those who both sang and played piano, and this is my attempt to emulate and capture their performance and arranging skills’. The album has received rave reviews from many, including The Observer and The Sunday Times, and was featured here, on, The Jazz UK, as our album of the week.
