Wendy Burch Steel
Wendy Burch Steel recently released her first album, Open Wings, and it’s a doozy. Bluegrass Breakdown calls it “a soaring debut album from a talent who will continue to fascinate!” Americana Gazette says, “Keep ‘em coming, Wendy, we’ll be listening!” Wendy grew up in upstate New York and learned to sing harmony from her father and her four brothers and sisters. She performed in bands in the 1980s, published two books of poetry in the 90s, and circled back to music in the Bay Area, seeking out Laurie for songwriting and vocal coaching. Laurie liked what she heard and decided to produce Wendy’s album. “Her voice is a joy to listen to,” Laurie says, “and her songs speak from the heart. She has been one of the Bay Area’s hidden gems for too long.” The Northern California Bluegrass Society agrees. They recently nominated Wendy for Best Female Vocalist.
