"Wendy Wall's voice is an ideal hybrid of the airiness of "Clouds"-period Joni Mitchell and the velvety muscularity of Joan Armatrading. On her striking debut album, Wall breathes the literate, Mitchell-influenced lyrics of songs such as "Wandering the Streets of Modern America," which successfully suggests the anxious, information-overloaded ambiance of an urban street, and the very un-'60s anti-war protest song "Missiles & Guns." The generous 14-song introduction was handsomely produced by Rob Fraboni, who couches Wall's floating ache of a voice with guitar and percussion textures and subtle woodwinds

She conducts the players with a flutter of her diminutive hand in arrangements so artful as to be inextricable from the songs themselves.

"Aching vibrato... a bittersweet mix... her voice, rich and sensual, is instantly inviting... her lyrics communicate her experience in a way that makes the personal universal... let's hope she never stops."

           - Richard Winham WUTC Radio Chattanooga

     "Wendy Wall's knack for musical poetry and storytelling resonates at a conversational and interpersonal level thanks to the interaction of her vibrantly textured voice and the rest of her band… her songs speak about overcoming loss and contemplating dreams. Wall's third album, The Road To Paradise, is a graceful folk-rock interpretation of life's hardships and highlights"

            - The Valley Advocate


"This thirteen song collection from Wendy Wall titled The Road to Paradise is a mix of folk and country with a smattering of pop hooks..."I Woke Up Dreaming", "What Do I Do with Love", "The Wallflower Waltz" and "Water under the Bridge" reflect the mood here. Other tracks of note include "Hugging the Coast", "The Wisdom" and "A Wing and a Prayer" that features some fine banjo pickin' from Larry Campbell".

Listener Reviews for The Road to Paradise

Here's what people are saying about THE ROAD TO PARADISE

"Wendy Wall and her partner Baker Lee have collaborated on one of the
most beautiful albums I have ever heard. Wendy's vocals on The Road To
Paradise are absolutely mesmerizing on her jazz-infused folk tunes,
enhanced by Baker's lush instrumentals. Wendy's strong, emotive vibrato
is the strength of this work."

The emotional impact of listening to "The Road to Paradise" is simply
stunning. These are songs that come at you so directly, from so deep
inside, with such rare honesty and clear beauty, and such an organic
force that I found I was completely transported from the task at hand
and had to give my full attention to the music. I was more than
captivated, I was captured. Wendy Wall's songs felt like grace to me.

"These are powerful songs. Wendy Wall writes from her bones. She sings of the private inner-most things we have in common but few dare to mention. The musicianship is first rate: whimsical, improvisational, soaring, then melancholy. The Road to Paradise is a path worth taking."

Petina Cole, filmmaker, musician

The instrumental work is beautiful on every song and your vocals are soothing and earthy. It is the perfect CD to get me through my day at work or just out on an afternoon drive. 'Fool's Gold' and 'What Do I Do with Love' are my favorites, but the title song "the Road to Paradise" is also lovely! I will enjoy this CD for a long time to come.

Each time I listen to Wendy Wall’s new CD, I notice something different and interesting about the music. The more you listen, the more you’ll enjoy it.

When you listen carefully you realize that each note and word was clearly thought out. When you play it while you work, it leaves you feeling a little better.

Some times she sounds a bit country, sometimes a bit folk, or rock. Mostly she sounds like Wendy. Each song has its own feel. They are are great to hear.

Richard and I had such a wonderful night seeing you perform your beautiful magic on your mesmerized audience.

From the minute you began singing, you captured my heart and held me spellbound. I loved the songs, the sound, your voice, and esp. the lyrics!

I fell immediately in love with the passion and importance and beauty of the words you wrote. And you have such an easy and relaxed presence on stage and seemed to be having so much fun with your partner, Baker Lee. He is just fabulous on the guitar and your chemistry and sound together is really exciting to watch.

Good luck to all of you on the CD, which I purchased, and which I intend to enjoy over and over again.
