Wendy Waldman

Wendy Waldman emerged from the same Los Angeles scene as Karla Bonoff, Andrew Gold, Linda Ronstadt, and J.D. Souther. She first recorded as part of the group Bryndle (with Bonoff, Gold, and Kenny Edwards), and when they disbanded in the early '70s with only one unreleased album to their name, she was signed by Warner Bros. Her sound was typical of singer/songwriters of the period (she played piano and acoustic guitar), although her earliest work boasted more experimental flourishes than most. Waldman's father, Fred Steiner, was a Hungarian/American composer, and her mother, Shirley, a professional violinist; it was clear she had been schooled in a wide variety of musical styles. Waldman's first success came when Maria Muldaur recorded two of her songs, "Mad Mad Me" and "Vaudeville Man," on her self-titled 1972 album. She was particularly skillful at writing blues-based tunes, with unexpected Gershwin-esque and orchestral twists, and her first two albums, Love Has Got Me and Gypsy Symphony, were extremely strong and critically favored. But none of her releases sold more than 25,000 copies, and she never made a chart appearance. After the failure of 1982's Which Way to Main Street, she moved to Nashville and ultimately proved a stronger commercial prospect as a non-performing songwriter, particularly in 1991 when Vanessa Williams enjoyed enormous success with "Save the Best for Last." In 1995, Bryndle re-formed for one album and she toured both with them and as a solo artist. ~ Charles Donovan

I always associate her with Maria Muldaur and 'Mad Mad Me'--I totally lost track of her; from the bio (never a reliable source) it seems as if she disappeared. . . a shame because, at her bet, she could write.

Sometimes I Think She's Sounds Like Linda Ronstadt

If you haven't heard the Bryndle cd give it a spin. Some of the best vocal harmonies ever and Wendy sings lead on some very good songs.

One of the most underrated artists, I have literally worn out her tapes and vinyl albums over the years. I have listened to her for decades a superb artist.

I remember her well at Passim's. Her and the date-nut bread & cream cheese. She was very talented with a great voice, I wore out one of her albums in those days.

One of my favorite artists... I saw her last year and am seeing her later this year. It's a shame that Bryndle will never be able to play again.

One of the best artists that never made the charts. Maybe the charts aren't worthy of her ;)

I miss the hot spiced cider @ Passim.

Wendy, after years of producing other artists and writing for them is back on the road and cutting CD's with 2 other lady singer/songw r i t e r s in their own right. They tour right now under the name of the Refugees.

Her bio says she never sold over 25,000 of her releases--we l l I'm one of those 25K who bought them back in the 70's. Still love her.

Great discovery!

mkeown91, have to agree with you about the hair. I had such a crush on her when I was in college. I'd go to see her every night she played Passim's in Harvard Square. One night she actually stopped and said, "Hi, you're here again." It made my night. Fortunately many of her albums are back in print on cd. Still wish she had recorded a live album of those Passim shows.

I love Wendy Waldman. I grew up with albums and had all of hers at one time. I love her voice, her style and her hair. Rock on Wendy! I have her Best of c.d. but it's not the same as having all of her music. M

Wendy's albums never lived up to her live performances . I saw her many times at Passim's Coffee House in Harvard Square accompanying herself with a Martin D-35 guitar and piano and she blew that place away every time. Too bad none of these shows ever found their way to lp (cd).
