Wall Street Journal Tabs Wendy Colonna As One To Watch At SXSW
Austin-based Songstress Among “A Slew Of Gifted Country-Influenced Singer-Songwriters” At Fest
MARCH 11, 2014 – The Wall Street Journal’s Jim Fusilli named Wendy Colonna as one of the “best music acts” to see at this year’s SXSW music festival. Fusilli put Colonna alongside much buzzed about names like John Fullbright, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Parker Milsap, Shakey Graves and Sturgill Simpson, “a slew of gifted country-influenced singer-songwriters” performing this year in Austin. Colonna’s latest album Nectar showcases her “swamp/soul conviction” (San Antonio Express-News), and continues to gain traction at Triple A radio.

Wendy Colonna SXSW 2014 Schedule
WED 3/12 - Official Showcase @ Stephen F's Bar, 701 Congress Ave, Austin (set time Midnight)
SAT 3/15 - Love on the Lawn @ Central Market North Lamar (set time 12:45pm)

Colonna has become a standout 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.
