In the winter of 2012, singer songwriter went into the Stuart Piano Factory in Newcastle with Brendan St Ledger on piano and Greg Royal, standup bass.

The trio emerged after two days with an album of live recordings and realised they had captured a long loved but never delved into side of Wendy’s music history.

The circumstances they recorded in allows for an intimate and introspective translation of some classic and not so classic Billie Holiday songs, an iconic woman whose soul and music has been long admired.

In the centenary year since Ms Holiday’s birth, Wendy Matthews is proud to release Billie and Me on her very own Barking Bear record label.
