Wendy Wall's site
Julia Fordham or a more mainstream pop/contemporary folk Happy Rhodes
Own, often cowritten
Very, very ectopian. Her voice reminds me of no one as much as Happy Rhodes. (email@example.com)
Recommended first album:
Out of print, though wide on release
Recommended for fans of folk/pop
Wendy Wall—vocals, keyboard, percussion, harmony vocals
Shane Mitchell Hue—harmonica, organ
Her voice reminds me of no one as much as Happy Rhodes. Her songs are, for the most part, a little more conventional—there are a few weak ones on this album—but when she's on, there are chills. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Since it's an independent release it sounds less produced than her debut, and it falls very firmly into the contemporary singer/songwriter category, where her first one was more in the Julia Fordham vein. It's quite good. Her voice has changed a little bit over time: it's not as rich as before, but it's no less lovely to listen to. (email@example.com)
