Nominated for: BEST Local Bands

Multiple locations (See Map)

As Colorado’s music scene has exploded over the past few years, one of its mainstays has been Wendy Woo. Her energetic personality, musical skills, and spirited songwriting have made her a media and fan favorite and have taken her to venues across the country including the Fox Theater and Red Rocks in Colorado, the Bitter End and the Living Room in New York, the Hotel Cafe in Los Angles, the Bluebird Café in Nashville, Sweetwater in Mill Valley, and Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Georgia.

Anticipating the rise of the independent artist, Woo formed her own corporation, Woo Music. Through that she runs her own record label (eight albums), publishing company, booking agency, and management company.

Woo was born in New York and moved to Boulder as a toddler when her parents Jane, an artist, and Bataan, a poet, became founding faculty members of Naropa University. The Faigao home was a gathering spot for such literary icons as Beat poet Allen Ginsberg, Merry Prankster Ken Kesey, and 1960s chronicler Norman Mailer.

Among Woo’s many accolades:

• Voted #1 for Best Local Band 2011 by CBS affiliate Channel 7’s A list.
• Five-Time Winner Best Singer/Songwriter (Denver's Westword) (Now in Westword's Hall of Fame).
• One of Denver's Top Five Bands, Channel 7 A-List (2009).
• Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Competition Top Four (2004).
• Independent Artist of the Year (2003) (Hapi Skratch Entertainment).
• Best Boulder Musician (The Boulder Weekly).
• Best Singer/Songwriter (The Boulder Daily Camera).
• Best Local Artist (Colorado Daily).
• Winner of the Colorado Lilith Fair Talent Search (sharing the stage with Sarah McLachlan and The Indigo Girls).
• Named to music critics' "Best Colorado CDs of the Year" lists: Ecolalia (The Denver Post and Westword) and Gonna Wear Red (DenverLocalMusicScene).

In addition:

• Woo’s song, "Walking the Skyline," was used by HDNet as its promo song for the 2008 season.
• She and her band performed a two-hour concert broadcast nationally on Altitude Sports and Entertainment Network.
• She sings the theme song for Good Day Colorado, the weekday morning show on Denver's Fox affiliate.
• She has been part of national sports retailer Title Nine's Emerging Women Artist series.
• Her music has been featured in:
o Uncommon Goals, a Discovery Channel documentary about the gold medal-winning U.S. women's soccer team.
o Mountain of Dreams, a documentary about Mt. Everest.
o The Food Network's FoodNation with Bobby Flay.

Music:

Woo has released nine CDs, displaying a wide variety of styles. Angels in the Crowd (1997) is a collection of mellow jazz and folk-inspired ballads. Wide Awake and Dreaming (1999) is a full band production with funk and jazz rhythms. Ecolalia (2000) features Woo’s songs and acoustic guitar interwoven with her father’s poetry. Gonna Wear Red (2002) is a tightly produced series of rock tunes with touches of funk, blues, and folk. Walking the Skyline (2004) has songs in three genres: intimate solo acoustic; expansive upbeat pop/folk; and full band funk. Angels Laughing (2005) is a live solo acoustic album. Luxury (2007) is a mix of power pop, arena rock, and even some electronica influences.
Saving Grace (2009) is an album of acoustic duets with Roch Hoch. Austerity (2011) a full band collaboration.
