About Wendy

As A & R director of Myriad Productions, I have a thorough understanding of music and the contemporary music scene. At the age of 10 I was singing the National Anthem at NBA and NFL games and by 18 I was on the road with my own band traveling throughout the U.S., Canada, New Zealand and Australia. I have opened for Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, Mindy McCready, Chris Ledoux and the Charlie Daniels band to name a few. I have also headlined at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas earning a "Best of Las Vegas" rating by the Las Vegas Review Journal. My love for music and my personal accomplishments now reach out beyond my own passion for the stage in search of up and coming artists and the repertoire needed for commercial success. I am blessed to now be able to bring my experience and ear for hearing hit songs together with my dedication and team spirit to further others careers in the exciting and rapidly evolving music industry. https://www.myriad-pro.com
