"Another excellent gem of a song by the sultry voiced Wendy Conrad!
She truly is one of the finest singer/songwriters in L.A..." ~~

Recorded with Grammy Award-winning Tom Weir, who owns and runs
Studio City Sound, Conrad says, "...the recording sessions were
the Best...! Not only was I awed by the amazing talent of Tom
and every A-team musician who played on it, they were also amazing
to work with...and a lot of fun! Add to that the U47 mic in Tom's
studio...which elevates singing to a whole new level...I was
flying!"

“A firm dose of Americana, emphasized firmly by the easy rocking 'I Can Leave'!”-- ROOTSTIME

“Upon hearing Wendy Conrad's sterling sophomore release, the aptly titled 'More', three words come to mind..."chanteuse", "classic" and "pure". Conrad is a singer/songwriter of uncommonly rare honesty and beauty.”-- Jef Fazekas (CD Baby)

“Wendy Conrad is one of my favorite singer/songwriters and with her new release “More” she continues moving forward writing and singing in her own unique musical and lyrical style. And it sounds great!” -- Dave Merenda, Grammy-winning songwriter (Sarah McLachlan, Kenny Rogers)

Super 8Wendy’s photo show at Gasoline Gallery in El Segundo was a big success!  The collection of black & white super-8 photographs, from 1985 film she shot throughout L.A., received raves from all in attendance, with one collector purchasing personal favorite “…feather on Olvera Street” to add to his own art collection!

As she plans to continue showing her photographs, Conrad has been adding selected works to her catalog from super-8 film she shot in New York City in 1986.
