At one event, Stevie Wonder (who was set to perform in another room), heard Will Graves & Soul playing, came in and sat at the piano with Will Graves and sung along. This is a phenomenal band!

Wendy Moten

When Wendy Moten talks about her more than 20 years in the music industry, a few words come up over and over: growing,collaborating, learning. Lucky, fortunate.

A surprising juxtaposition emerges: one of pop music’s most powerful voices, who hopes that her legacy will be as a collaborator, open to creating great art.

It’s a refreshing perspective from a vocalist with Wendy’s resume. The Memphis-born, GRAMMY® nominated singer has earned a vast collection of professional credits in Contemporary, R&B, Jazz, Rock, and Country since launching her career with her self-titled debut record (EMI) in 1992. That album produced two Billboard charting singles, including the enduring ballad “Come In Out of the Rain” and the up-tempo dance hit “Step by Step.”

On the heels of that release, Wendy was chosen to open for Michael Bolton during his North American stadium tour and connected with fans worldwide through sold-out headlining performances at venues like the famed Budokan in Japan. In 1994, she recorded the GRAMMY ® nominated single “Whatever You Imagine,” from the animated film The Pagemaster starring Macaulay Culkin. Additional film soundtrack credits include 1993’s Mr. Wonderful starring Annabella Sciorra and Matt Dillon.

Wendy recorded two more albums for EMI: Time For Change, an international smash and European best-seller, with “Change Of Heart” and “Your Love Is All I Know;” and Life’s What You Make It, which showcased her versatility as an artist, vocalist, producer and songwriter. That’s when Wendy got an invitation that she says was pivotal to the course of her career. She travelled the world with Julio Iglesias as a featured vocalist for 15 years, connecting with worldwide audiences, growing tremendously as a performer and discovering herself as an artist.

Indeed, the list goes on endlessly: her stunning lead vocal on the Stevie Wonder mega-hit, “All I Do,” from saxophonist Kirk Whalum’s GRAMMY® winning album, “For You;” her duets on records like Michael McDonald’s No Love to Be Found; featured vocals on Buddy Guy’s 2009 GRAMMY® nominated album Skin Deep and the recently released Good Road to Follow by John Oates. In 2009, she released Tis the Season, a collaboration with American jazz, pop, and Latin pianist Clay Perry and in 2013 shared backing vocal duties with Bekka Bramlett at Bonnaroo’s Rock ‘N’ Soul Dance Party Superjam, rocking out with an all-star lineup including John Oates, Jim James, Larry Graham, Billy Idol, R. Kelly, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

And in 2014, there’s no rest in sight – in fact, Wendy is readyto step up to center stage again with the release of Timeless: Wendy Moten Sings Richard Whiting, out in May on Woodward Avenue Records.
