Wendy Ealey has a voice that takes me back to smoke filled folk venues of Melbourne 30 odd years ago. With good reason, she has been a performer on the folk scene both in Australia and in Britain since the 70’s.

Hers is a big beautiful voice that resonates with passion as she sings songs penned by herself and others accompanying herself on guitar. Political songs nestle comfortably with love songs to form a quilt of human experience.

A song written by Mary Caruana with Brent Parlane called “Bigger Than This” can be found on on her MySpace site, is a ballsy dig at the treatment of “illegal” immigrants. “Child of My Heart” is the story of grief felt by an infertile woman.

She also performs with friends in a quartette called Unsung. Here is the video for “Winter Sun” written by Moira Tyers performed by Unsung (Wendy Ealey, Leticia Maher, Neil Robertson and Moira Tyers) at the Darebin Songwriters Guild at 303, Northcote, Melbourne, Australia on June 8, 2008

A selection of MP3’s are available for download through her website, including “No RIght Way” another song that ponders the choices that people make.

If you aren’t lucky enough to catch her act live then a CD “out of the Shower” is available for purchase through IndieCDs.com.

is a graphic designer who used to front a band on vocals and bass. All evidence of which have mercifully been obliterated or otherwise lost.
