WENDY WOO
Angels in the Crowd, the first CD by singer-songwriter Wendy Woo, traces her development as an artist. "Some of the songs on there I wrote four years ago," Woo says. "And others are a lot newer. And it has a good mix of musicians, too. There are probably twenty people who play on it. I'm in a lot of different settings." For Woo, variety is the spice of her music. A Boulder native and longtime scenester (perhaps she's served you a drink while bartending at the Fox Theatre), she often fronts a full band--"bass, drums, keyboards, electric guitar and sometimes sax and trumpet if the venue calls for it"--but she's just as comfortable playing solo, or with one or two other musicians. "In October, I'm going to do a coffee-shop tour with a cello player, Hannah Alkire. It'll be just acoustic guitar and cello, and she and I are really enjoying it. It's nice to be up there with another woman." She snickers. "The boys don't care how they're dressed, but Hannah and I like to call each other up and decide what to wear together." Woo is eager to record in this more intimate format. An accomplished sound engineer who co-produced Angels with Paul Armstrong, she sees the studio as her home away from home. "I love it, and I'm really psyched to get back in there."
