Wendy Colonna @ KUT 5/21/11
Austin singer-songwriter Wendy Colonna grew up in Louisiana and it shows in her music in a big (and good) way. Her country/folk/blues style makes for an excellent musical gumbo infused with Gulf Coast soul and just enough funk to elevate her above the standard fare. Recently, she won the Austin-American Statesman’s award for “Best Singer Songwriter,” and released her fourth studio album, We Are One, which has received positive reviews all around. Wendy Colonna has a show on Saturday night May 22nd at the Saxon Pub. If you missed it you can listen to Wendy Colonna’s performance from Studio 1a with KUT host Kevin Connor RIGHT HERE.
