Wendy Colonna’s Sly “Dirty Things” Wrestles With Imperfection, Being Added At Triple-A Nationwide 

SXSW Next For Colonna, New Dates Added To Spring Tour

MARCH 4, 2014 – The sly boogie of Wendy Colonna’s “Dirty Things” opens her latest album Nectar, showcasing Colonna’s “swamp/soul conviction” (San Antonio Express-News).   Musically the album standout is an upbeat shuffle, but lyrically the song finds Colonna dealing with feeling imperfect, tomboyish and wrestling with some of life’s vices.  The track’s yin-yang dynamics are attention getting, with “Dirty Things” being added at Triple-A stations nationwide.  Colonna, who will showcase this year at SXSW, has also expanded her Spring U.S. tour, adding shows in Nashville and Birmingham, with more additions to come.

Colonna has become a stand-out in her adopted hometown of Austin,TX, and Nectar found its way onto year–end “Best Of” lists at the Austin American-Statesman and the Austin Chronicle.  The album is filled with songs about surrender, mortality and redemption.  Nectar came together after Colonna’s recovery from an eight-month illness, at a point when she was almost ready to give up her music career.  The record bares these scars, showing the grace and surrender that went into Colonna surviving and succeeding.
