As an artist Wendy Matthews has an expressive voice that never fails to move those who hear it.

Her music is an unhurried journey of clean melodies, infectious energy and simple grace, In an age where uber-production techniques are thought to be hip and cynicism an attribute, Wendy has proven that commitment to beauty is still not only valid but applauded by the public ear.

This is exemplified by the reality that Wendy's music is now in more than 1 million homes in Australia and all her albums to date have multi-platinum status. Wendy has an immense talent and capacity to capture and define a diverse range of styles in her music.

She takes songs from every genre and makes them her own; from jazz to blues, from rock to gospel, from soul to outright infectious pop and then, of course, there are the beautiful ballads.

Wendy is adept at reaching both frenetic youth and mature audiences alike, if older ears are captured by her soul and unfazed class, a more cynical youth is convinced by her disarming ease of delivery, wooed by a voice of stunning emotive capacity yet void of sentimentality.

The Day You Went Away was the 'highest selling single' of 1993 and the 'single of the year'. Wendy then followed up with another two studio albums The Witness Tree and Ghosts including the hits Love Will Keep Me Alive, Standing Strong and Then I Walked Away. Not resting on her laurels, in 2001 Wendy released Beautiful View featuring the hauntingly beautiful title track and club favourite Like the Sun. 2004 saw the release of the mixed-up, chilled-out Caf Naturale, an eclectic suite of songs, which immediately evoke a sense of familiarity. The Tropfest winning film Lamb by Emma Freeman features the highly acclaimed video clip to the popular All I Need. 2013 saw Wendy release her brilliant album, The Welcome Fire.
