FOLK: Modern Folk, FOLK: like Joni
"Wendy Beckerman writes direct, honest, poetic lyrics and has a lovely voice to deliver them."
-The Boston Globe
"Beckerman's vocals are supremely expressive and clear as a bell, her melodies infectious, and her lyrics are like shining semantic roofing nails driven into your forehead. Not a word, not a note, is wasted. "
"A brave adventurer...She constructs subtle poetic or narrative changes with a spare, unpredictable vocabulary. "
"A genuinely gifted singer/songwriter... intellectually compelling as well as emotionally comforting."
-Out 'n About
"Beckerman breathes new life into the singer/songwriter genre. Her songs are bold and honest, but melodic and emotional as well."
-Borders Books & Music
Wendy Beckerman is a songwriter whose uniqueness comes from the naturalness of her writing and performance. Her songs, sung with a straightforward vocal style, leave an imprint of unpredictable melody and evocative imagery, and are accompanied by both rhythmic and fingerstyle guitarwork. In live performance she brings heart into every moment of sound and breath, often telling playful stories and poetic vignettes as framework for her songs.
A New Jersey native, Beckerman grew up studying classical piano and upright bass, and performing in school choirs and musical theater, while soaking in the warm acoustic music that was emanating from the family stereo speakers - artists such as James Taylor and Laura Nyro. When she fell in love with the acoustic guitar in 1986, she made the natural shift to folk muic, began writing songs, and found her way to the Greenwich Village folk scene. Beckerman participated in the weekly Songwriter's Exchange, recorded over a dozen songs for "Fast Folk Musical Magazine," and performed annually in their revue at The Bottom Line in New York City.
Beckerman's songs have been recored by artists Louise Taylor and Hot Soup, and her easeful harmony singing can be heard on various recording projects, including those of Jack Hardy, Louise Taylor, Annie Gallup and Linda Sharar. She was a finalist in Telluride's songwriting contest, and her song "In So Deep" appears in the film "Rubbernecking."
Focusing on her foremost passions of music and yoga, Beckerman has recorded four CDs and toured in the United States and Europe while earning certifications in both yoga instruction and Reiki (hands-on energy work). In autumn 2001, she relocated and co-founded a spin-off Songwriter's Exchange in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she currently resides.
