Wendy Moten launched her career as a pop/R&B artist in the 90s and has taken many excellent detours throughout her fascinating career. Living in Nashville, TN for the past 23 years, Wendy has shared the stage with Faith Hill & Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Julio Iglesias, and the legendary Vince Gill to name a few. Through her dynamic working relationship with Vince Gill and the 21-time Grammy winner’s long-held appreciation for her versatility, Wendy’s project “I’ve Got You Covered,” was born and released to fans..

Produced by Gill and featuring Nashville’s elite hit-making session musicians, the nine-track collection is Wendy’s long-awaited moment in the country music spotlight. Delivering songs hand-picked by Gill, Wendy effortlessly finds her groove in music she calls “real stories and real songs.” 

In addition to recording, performing and touring with major artists, Wendy Moten set the stage for her emergence as a bona fide country artist with a plethora of live performances in Nashville. For the planned February 2020 release of I’ve Got You Covered, Wendy made her debut at the Grand Ole Opry in April 2019 and played that stage three times before performing a showcase at 3rd & Lindsley, one of Music City’s premier live venues. She also headlined the Opry stage at the Bonnaroo Music Festival, plus 2018 and 2019 saw Wendy as the featured artist in the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum’s Musician’s Spotlight series. Subsequently Vince Gill invited her to become the 11th member of the Grammy award-winning western swing band The Time Jumpers (an institution launched by the town’s top studio musicians in 1998) at their weekly 3rd & Lindsley sold-out shows. Legendary names like James Taylor, Brian May and Steve Lukather (Toto) have been spotted in the audience enjoying the show.

Known affectionately in various industry circles as “The Voice,” the multi-talented Memphis-born performer launched her career with a self-titled 1992 EMI album that included the ballad “Come In Out Of The Rain,” which reached the Top 5 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and later hit the Top Ten on the UK singles chart. The singer opened for Michael Bolton on his North American stadium tours and became popular in Japan when she performed sold-out concerts at the famed Budokan, hosted by David Foster. After several well-received albums (including one produced by Foster), Wendy diversified and launched a new phase of her career recording guest duets with Michael McDonald (“No Love To Be Found”), Kirk Whalum (“All I Do”), Peabo Bryson (“My Gift Is You”), Larry Carlton (“I Still Believe”) and Julio Iglesias (“Just Walk Away”), the latter whom she toured with for over 15 years.  Prior to the release of I’ve Got You Covered Wendy released a contemporary jazz set entitled Timeless: Wendy Moten Sings Richard Whiting.
