Wendy Starland
Wendy Starland Bio:


Wendy Starland was discovered by Maceo Parker (sax player for the legendary James Brown), who spotted her at one of his concerts, pulled her onstage and let her wail. She scatted her own improvisational song and received a standing ovation. Recognizing a great promotional opportunity, fashion diva Donna Karan sponsored a tour where this stunning, talented singer/songwriter played to packed houses and garnered incredible reviews.

Wendy has opened for Shawn Colvin at Summer Stage and Grandmaster Flash at NY’s prestigious Roseland on New Year’s Eve. She opened up twice for Atlantic artist, Lucy Woodward, and headlined this summer with Universal/Verve artist Jonatha Brooke. She has sung back-up for Michael Bolton and appeared with him on CBS’s Early Show. Telemundo is currently producing a TV series on up-and-coming artists and will feature Wendy in a half-hour production based entirely on her career. World famous filmmaker Trilby Macdonald (Museum of Modern Art) is also producing a special on Wendy.

Wendy’s own music has been heard in films such as The Rules, Anna’s Thread, and Weekend Getaway starring Jill Hennessy from the NBC hit series Crossing Jordan. Her song “Stolen Love,” will be heard in the soon to be released Universal Pictures feature film Living the Lie, starring Cameron Diaz, Jon Bon Jovi and Kathleen Turner. Her song “Garden of Temptation” is featured in the promo for NBC’s hit series Las Vegas, starring James Caan and Molly Simms. NBC snatched up one of Wendy’s songs again for their new primetime series Hawaii, as well as promoting her with a listening station on their website.

Wendy has written songs for platinum-selling producers and artists in the rap genre for stars such as Wu Tang Clan and Capone of Def Jam’s Capone & Noriega. Her co-written single and video with Def Jam’s Japanese rap star, Butcher, aired on every major TV and radio station throughout Japan including: MTV, MJTV, Inter fm, and Tokyo fm. She has just been signed as the first female producer for Nexxus Entertainment, headed by the top producers from Trackmasters (Ray Don, Frank Nitty and Spanador), which is bringing her more attention and more work. She is writing for rising R&B star Jessi, and Interscope’s City High. She is also working with Quincy Jones, who is producing the follow-up to “We Are the World,” set for release on BMG Records. She was featured on platinum band Blink’s latest album which has been nominated for 2 METEOR Awards: “Best Album” and “Best Band.” After flying into New York from London for her live showcase, multi-Grammy winning producer, Hugh Padgham, calls Wendy’s music simply “Great!”

Her songwriting skills have been recognized with major awards including two Best Song honors in songwriting competitions judged by such icons as Diane Warren, Babyface, Carol Bayer-Sager, and David Foster. Wendy was one of two finalists in an international songwriting contest for the Christina Aguilera/Coca-Cola Summer Olympics advertising campaign, and one of two finalists for Disney's new corporate theme song. Out of thousands of entries, Wendy won “Best Artist” in a contest sponsored by VH1, Daisy Rock Guitars, Bacardi and Step Up Women’s Network. Wendy was the semi-finalist in the Discmakers 2004 Independent Music World Series chosen by TAXI.

Cityzen Magazine says it best: “Expect to hear more about this phenomenal artist in the years to come. If her track record is any indication, Wendy Starland is going take her trifecta of talent (composing, performing and producing) to the next level very soon.”
