The Wendy James


Hi Everyone!

How are you all? I hope very well!

The Tour

It is now 9 days after the final show on my 28 date UK tour with THE WENDY JAMES BAND!

My first two days home were spent unpacking and sleeping! I’m just about getting back in the swing of things but there is so much to do!

I’m desperately trying to reach an empty headspace and calendar where I can just immerse myself in the constant writing of my ALBUM 10. Next week I will listen to the songs I had demo’d before setting out on tour and then move on from that. I want to make Album 10 as spectacular as I possibly can, something that will musically and lyrically amaze both you and me. I have my sights set high and my ideas are coming together for both the direction and production. 

*Please do preorder all manner of ALBUM 10 items: Vinyl, CD’s T-Shirts, Posters, rare Test Pressings, Artwork Proofs etc, as before, limited numbers apply, there are finite amounts of test pressings and artwork proofs I can receive…

Playing all my varied songs on this tour The Wendy James Band has just done made me so, so happy, to play, to sing, to hear and feel all the music I’ve written and then to see you all react to it, older songs and newer songs, favorites alike. I tend to live in the moment, not the past or the future, and so it’s been exhilarating and really life affirming to meet you all and hear your stories of how you first saw me perform a gig or on television, where you were, how old you were and what it meant to you. The history I now carry with me, and in you, all the emotions and stories, I am so lucky to have lived my life like this. Thank you! 

Thank you for your reactions to the shows! To see you loving the music and the performance is everything I wish for.

Thank you for all those brilliant after-show merchandise signings/selfies/stories! Wow! … And my V. I.P. guests, who are now part of our traveling Rock n Roll family! So many faces to names have been synched! I recognize many of your names from social media comments or when you buy something from my store, but not really what you look like, now I know and it’s wonderful! We can greet each other with very happy familiarity next time! 

The Wendy James Band are so very good! We had the best fun touring around the UK (I love motorway stops and cheese sandwiches!), of course we worked very hard in rehearsals and arrived at our first show in Blackpool match fit. We rehearsed 10 hours a day for 2 weeks and then the shows themselves! Our gigs reached a level of quality you can only get when you do a lengthy tour, when you hone the music perfectly, hit cruise control and really enjoy it. You’ve now all witnessed Jordan Cook on Drums, Leo Kurunis on Bass, Andrew Saunders and Alex Ward on Guitar and Keyboards and Pip Stakem on lead Guitar! It’s a very good band! A band that can handle and achieve anything!

I have a big touring idea, which I am now, just beginning, to explore with an agent and a promoter. It would get me into international territories and bring both my old music and new music to countries outside of the UK. I will make this announcement when it’s ‘for sure’. Toward the end of this tour we just completed, I did start telling people my idea! So I know some of you know and I know it was met with 100% approval!

I’m just so grateful and happy to have played for you all, to have met so many of you and for it to have been such a success. We all needed this to happen, after such a long wait, missing live shows for so long and having been away from gatherings, it was so exciting, so necessary for us to all be together again. It felt so good!

Once again: Thank you.

There will be more news soon! 

So… take care, tons of love


Wendy xo
