Wendy – Lead Vocalist & Percussionist with Cool Reception

wendy_bio2

Wendy has been singing since primary school and is also an accomplished dancer.

Following a successful spell on the Karaoke circuit in the early 90s (which helped fund a few nights out in her University days!) she found her way onto the live circuit in her home town of Penicuik.

Having joined a band performing covers and original material she then spent a few years gigging in and around Edinburgh singing both lead and backing vocals, including a few recording studio demos. During this time she developed into a mean tambourine player and now can shake it with the best of them!
