Her enticing story brings us back to 2001 when Wendy received the devastating news of cancer and due to this she had to painfully take a step back from her flourishing music career. She is an example to all tho se with the debilitating disease which after a gruelling two year constant battle she has now overcome fully and is finally back on track in the studio recording, writing and doing what she loves most. Before this misfortuneWendy Walker made strides in the RnB music scene having had a string of top tens in the 90’s collaborating with the likes ofLloyd Brown and Spider Johnson who had previously worked with Lee Scratch Perry andMadness. Not to mention previously touring with some of the biggest names in UK Reggae and RnB acts such as Louisa Marks, Mike Anthony and Peter Spence.
‘Hurt Again’ picks up where she left off, showcasing once again how her syrupy, seductive vocals can transform a classic RnB backing into a sensual and provocative sound. Wendy grew up singing, using every chance she got, whether it was the lead in all her school musicals or skipping classes to sing right up to touring through Europe with the likes of The Wailers andGregory Isaac plus more. This helped cement her as a recognised and established Lover’s Rock / RnB artist, setting the tone for her career as she continually got spotted singing in clubs, releasing single with labels such as ‘Sir George Records’ and winning awards such as‘Best Female Newcomer’ at the‘British Reggae Awards’.
Wendy has big plans for 2015, having already made an appearance at the O2 for ‘Queens of Lover’s Rock’, working with a Dennis Bovell song who recently finished an album with Joss Stone and appearing on ITV’s “Get Your Act Together” earlier in the year. Wendy is clearly set on the high road and has a truly inspirational story to tell.
Inspirational to all, submitting to none, not even cancer. Wendy Walker is an example to everyone as her career unfolds exponentially this year.
