Wendy Wednesday - MSA Featured Local Hero

Yup , MSA is now having a local hero Demo/Album/Single/EP section to expose to all of you loyal readers and customers and musicians or fellow friends to all the great music we have here in our sweet home. Some musicians that you might not know maybe have more great songs of the usual MTV and commercial radios.
So if you have Music for sale ( like a demo or EP) bring it up to MSA or contact us for more details.
Today we are looking a good friend of mine in the journey of music, Wendy Wednesday.
For a girl, i can say she done alot than many mens should be doing.
 Her "Some Songs" cd are available here in MSA.  
But what we really wanna know from her is.....

MSA:Wendy Wednesday.What's the origin of that name? Have you changed the 
band's name before?

WENDY:I was sent to IT camp by my school. We had to open an email account. Couldn't think of what ID name to use; then I thought - hey, it's Wednesday today, it looks kinda similar to my name. And it stuck with me ever since. A few years later I found out I was born on a Wednesday, so I thought, yea, the name's meant to be.

MSA)Could you briefly describe the music-making process?

WENDY:When things happen which make me emotionally abnormal, I'd write out my emotions in paragraphs which would turn into lyrics. I'm the type who writes and writes and writes till I get tired and I'll forget whatever that's happened. And then comes the difficult part - thinking of the melody to fit the words. It's so difficult that most of the words end up as poetry rather than songs.
But I figured another way, which also makes a song sounds better. Hum out a melody with a guitar, and when I'm done with a group of melody, then I'd sing out whatever I felt, and it's a much easier process.

MSA)Which bands have influenced your own personal style?

WENDY:Oasis. And not to forget Jewel and Fional Apple, for their lyrics.

MSA)What's your ultimate direction for you? Are you seeking fame and fortune?

WENDY:Good question. First, it has got to be, having a documentation of me as a proof I existed in this world when I'm no longer around, especially for years to come, if I have descendents. And the way of documentation I thought of, is to record an album. Secondly, I'd like to do what Raine Maida (Our Lady Peace) did for me, speak to me through his lyrics. I'd like to be able to color people's lives with my music. If someone feels happy or connected in times of crisis by my music - well, that's what I would want to achieve.
Fame and fortune - if it comes along, I'd be glad to receive it, I won't lie. But, it's not the most important thing. How do I know this - even if I don't have it, I'll still keep writing.

MSA)How can fans-to-be gain access to your music? Do you have a website with sample songs or a demo CD?

WENDY:Currently, the EP 'Some Songs' can be found:
physically - Music Star @ Melaka, and Ice Music @ Melaka
My album will be arriving soon this year, will keep you updated via my facebook page, via my blog

MSA)What advice do you have for people who want to form their own bands?

WENDY:There's no wrong or right reasons to be in music. Even when people say you suck, it just means you need more practice. If you feel like doing it, do it. And if you don't feel it's fun anymore, don't force yourself doing it. If it doesn't work out in bands, don't give up, you can always go solo (like my bro told me once - listen to Bryan Adam's Summer of '69)
