Ready for an evening of music, Magic and mythology? Visionary Songstress Wendy Rule is making her annual trip to Sydney from her home in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and has chosen the charming Petersham Bowling Club to host this year’s concert.
Wild, passionate and empowering, Australian Visionary Songstress Wendy Rule, weaves together music, story and ritual to take her audience on an otherworldly journey of depth and passion. Drawing on her deep love of Nature and lifelong fascination with the worlds of mythology and Magic, Wendy’s songs combine irresistible melodies with rich aural textures and a rare personal honesty to create spiritual music.
With an extraordinary voice that moves from soaring heights to intimate whispers, Wendy explores all facets of the emotional world. Darkness and light, night and day, life and death are equally honoured.
Written primarily in the wilderness of New Mexico, her new album Black Snake is an album of transformation, of stripping back, of death and rebirth, and celebration of Life. Featuring gorgeous instrumentation – including cello by her long term collaborator Rachel Samuel, Native American Flute by her husband Timothy Van Diest, and ambient electric guitar, bass guitar and organ by her son Reuben George Bloxham – it highlights Wendy’s maturity as a writer, and her willingness to continue to evolve and grow as an artist.
But it is in her live performances that we are fully able to experience the full power of Wendy’s art. Every concert becomes a ritual, co-created by Wendy and her audience. From her intimate solo acoustic House Concerts, to her large scale events with a full band and string section, Wendy brings a unique magic to the stage.
