It's All Nothing

Wendy Rich

A native Texan, Wendy Rich was born and raised in the Houston area... and joined her first band at the age of 13. She joined her first blues band in 1989, shortly before she relocated to the Tampa Bay area. Since her arrival in 1990 Wendy has established herself and her band the Soulshakers, as a mainstay on the regional club and festival circuit. Over the years she has taken her band on the road on the east coast and to Europe as well as producing 5 CDs. In the year 2000 Wendy took some time off from the Soulshakers to tour with the legendary Big Brother & the Holding Company. She performed with them at venues all over the US and Europe through 2004 and remained friends with guitarist Sam Andrew until his passing in 2015.
Her latest labor of love, “It’s All Nothing”, was recorded in Nashville, TN, Houston TX, and even Largo FL! The Nashville tracks were produced by Kevin McKendree (who also produced her “Driver” CD) while Texas tunes were overseen by Andy Bradley.

Real music and real musicians make this record of original retro ,soulful. bluesy tunes with a touch of Americana country a must have! Featuring Delbert McClinton's stellar band Dick50 backing up long time Texas soul/blues singer /songwriter Wendy Rich

Florida based artist Wendy Rich collaborated with Grammy Award winning musician and producer Kevin McKendree (Brian Setzer, Delbert McClinton, John Oates) in Nashville, TN to create this solid album of soulful material. Wendy penned many of the tracks.... such as the title track Driver, Tides Of Change and Repossession, as well as co-writing with Kevin and ACM (Academy of Country Music) 2014 Guitar Player Of The Year Rob McNelley (Bob Seger) and Sean Corbett on the rollicking and lyric heavy "Leavin' Tullahoma".
Corbett also penned "Hurrican" and co-wrote with Rich & McKendree on the sexy "Want Me". Wendy also enlisted songs by the great Gary Nicholson (Always A Woman & Whatever You Make It) and Danny Flowers (Reason To Try) as well as from up and coming writer Ralph Martin (Brand New Addiction, Powerful Thing, It's Up To You)...a long time friend of Rich's from Florida. The result speaks for itself...check it out and let us know what YOU think!
