Auckland, New Zealand is home to singer/songwriter Wendy Morris, who has penned many crowd-pleasing originals, including the songs from her album Entangled, a collection of original, contemporary, easy-listening songs.
As well as the traditional line up of guitar, bass, percussion and vocals, the album features virtuoso violin player Murray Van Hoorn. Graham Brazier from Hello Sailor, an iconic Kiwi Band, performed guitar, harmonica and backing vocals on the album. The percussion was overseen by Bruce Morley, touring drummer for international stars including Spike Milligan and Cleo Lane. Wendy’s music offers plenty of variety, with pop, folk, country, rock, jazz and reggae influences.
The songs are melodic, harmonious and even the sad songs are uplifting. With lyrics that speak to everyone, the songs have been described in reviews as magical, inspirational and hauntingly beautiful. Wendy’s voice is clear and pure; reminiscent of female vocalists Kirsty MacColl and Judith Durham, with a modern edge. Her music video ‘No One’s Gonna See Me Cry’ by NZ film maker Darcy Gladwin was filmed on The Hibiscus Coast, Auckland and features Wendy driving a classic Ford Capri with the local scenery as a backdrop. Wendy currently performs with her band “The Wendy Morris Band” at many venues around New Zealand such as clubs, bars, festivals and private functions.
