Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
I’ve been listening to, and enjoying Bob & Wendy’s music for several years now. It seems each release is better than the last (and the first one was damn good).
They have a nice Alt Country/Americana style that I’ve come to love more and more over time. Wendy’s voice is in fine form and matches the music perfectly. It’s got a touch of smoke and so much emotion.
They have a gift for writing intricate and interesting melodies. It’s amazing to me that there are still new songs to be written since there are only 8 notes. So those who can write unique melodies are gods to me.
Another thing I greatly admire is being able to write intelligent lyrics (anyone can write pop-tart songs) and Bob & Wendy are masters here as well. I honestly don’t know why these two aren’t super famous.
Stand outs: Trace of Longing , Something Strong, Perfect Pitch but they’re all good.
