Wendy Clark is the band leader of The Wendy Clark Band and was the founder and leader of Denver-based original rock band Tequila Mockingbird. Active on the Front Range music circuit and indie scene since 1996, Wendy is a writer, composer, guitarist, bandleader, recording artist, manager, and promoter. Her music is classified as Americana rock, and plays to non-specific genre consistently, the execution of each song – although the melody and playful lyrics combined with Clark’s serving of infectious melody and sarcastic and thoughtful philosophical meanderings and with a twinge of nostalgia, that are catchy, powerful, and kept fresh by delving into multiple styles.
Wendy has released three critically-acclaimed full-length CDs under the moniker Tequila Mockingbird, has performed over 1,000 festivals and gigs regionally including A Taste of Colorado, Adams County Fair, The CHUN Peoples Fair (1998-present), toured in the Rockies into Wyoming and through New Mexico, appeared on live TV and radio (interviews and live in-studio performances on Denver’s Channel 2 Evening News, KRFC FM Ft. Collins 88.9 FM, KYGT FM, 1190 AM, KRUU FM Fairfield, Mile High Underground, Raven on the Rocks, and KCMJ FM Colorado Springs), and Band Talk on indie104.com, released dozens of videos (The Honeymoon and Catching On receiving tens of thousands of views on her YouTube), and opened at sold out shows for bands such as Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, The Samples, Bob Schneider, and Chris Daniels and The Kings. She has opened up for Tim McGraw at Fiddler’s Green, sat in with The Refreshments, Hazel Miller, and backed up Brian Blush (The Refreshments) and Jamon Scott (The Toluenes) as well as collaborated and recorded with bassist Rob Squires of Big Head Todd and the Monsters on UFO (1998). Wendy has also worked with award-winning sound engineers/producers Eric Shiveley (Alien-American 2004) and Bill Thomas (UFO 1998, Luck and Trouble 2010) and multi-GRAMMY recipient, David Glasser. Wendy won Vocalist of the Year in 2009 and UFO was the fifth-most popular from Night Howler Radio Awards. Her song Blue has been award song of the year by IAIRA in 2010. She has been listed in the best bands in Colorado and was in the top 50 most played singles and albums in 2010. Wendy has been working and promoting, as well as supporting the Colorado network since she played her first show.
With a new EP from WCB expected to drop in the summer of 2018 and features bandmates, Chris Coward, David Derby, Bill Crick, as well as Brian Blush of the Refreshments, Jamnon Scott, and Kate Leroux, the record is half an act in a virtual playground of what defines why we all like to write something that means whatever the audience wants it to mean.
