Discography - Singles

Dancing daze
Token angels
Woman's gotta have it
Let's kiss (Like angels do)
The day you went away
Friday's child
Standing strong
Say a prayer
If only I could
Love will keep me alive
Then I walked away
I've got to have you

CD cover picture   Friday's child (1993)

Reached number 15 in Australia. The promotion copy of this single has a short introductory message explaining a little about Wendy :

Wendy She is originally from Canada, has Scottish, Spanish and a good portion of Red Indian blood in her veins. In her new home of Australia, she became a star in a very short time with her debut album 'Emigre': Wendy Matthews.

Now her new album 'Lily' is available. The emphatic "Friday's child" has been chosen as the promotion single. 'Lily' is an emotional album, with a range varying from down-to-earth pop to titles with a bar-room jazz feeling. "I love many different styles of music," she says, "but didn't want to be classed as a pop and jazz singer." 'Lily', available since the Autumn in Australia, certainly underlines this statement.

"The day you went away", the first single taken from the album, went to the number two position in the charts and was the most-sold title of a domestic artist on the fifth continent in 1992. "Homecoming song by Susannah castaway" has it's roots in folk music, "t.k.o." goes in the direction of rythym'n'blues and "Face of Appalachia", written by Lowell George, tells of a Canadian mountain range where Wendy's red indian ancestors come from.

The signs all point towards a hit. The debut album 'Emigre' went platinum in Australia in 1990. The single "Token Angels" received an award as the best Australian debut single in 1992. Wendy Matthews herself was honoured as the best female artist. 'Lily' has already reached double platinum status.

Before I heard the band version of "Find me here" that is on this CD-single I wondered how such a wonderful song would sound with a band. Imho, don't bother listening to it, it's nothing like the original that's on the CD.
