about

A true Vessel of Funk and Soul with a twist of Jazz, Wendisue poetically covers the territories of life and loving with a refreshing outlook that makes you hungry for more.

----------------------------------------------------

Outstanding debut by Wendisue!

The state of commeicial radio has music purists clamoring to find sounds that touch the soul. As the current formulaic production of our RnB flatlines, there are still a few artistic gems which present with an unheralded appeal. By virtue of my occupation I have been fortunate enough to "discover" a diva to be. WendiSue's stellar debut titled "Homegrown" is the aural equivalent of an appetizer that fills and satisfies. Replete with excellent melody, funky beats and rhythm that flows, it is a crisp cornucopia of melody we can all appreciate. Those who know my tastes will accept my testimony that "Suffer the Loss" and "The Sickness" are two tracks which merit heavy rotation. We hope that this is only the beginning, an independent release reinforcing the Nu, the Neo, the Soul Movement. Label it what you wish but if your commercial RnB falls short, you owe it to yourself to add some zest to your collection. "Homegrown" will do more than whet the appetite, it will fulfill.

Track Name: The Sickness
Well I'm addicted baby, 'cause you know you got me goin' crazy
Been feelin' helpless lately, talked to multiple doctors and they say
I'm diagnosed with the thought of you, didn't want to believe it but I know it's true
And if I don't get your syrum very soon, (I'll be) bed ridden while I'm feenin' for you

Come on by, Only you can rehabilitate me
All this time, been sittin' here waiting for you to save me
Come on by, Only you can rehabilitate me
Me oh my, why don't you save me, come save me baby

Please don't be so shady, every time I call on you lately
You don't pick up the phone, knockin' on your door it seems your never home
Said you just needed space, if you really want to leave then say it to my face baby
I'm hangin' on to any word you speak, 'cause your the only one who has the cure for me

Come on by, Only you can rehabilitate me
All this time, been sittin' here waiting for you to save me
Come on by, Only you can rehabilitate me
Me oh my, why don't you save me, come save me baby

Been feelin' helpless lately, 'cause you know I got your sickness baby
Ain't feelin' healthy lately, 'cause you know I got your sickness baby
Been feelin' helpless lately, 'cause you know I got your sickness baby
Ain't feelin' healthy lately, 'cause you know I got your sickness baby
Track Name: Suffer The Loss
Suffer the loss they say sometimes 'cause
Love aint always what you thought it should be
Let it in but please let it go if, I'm not for you and if you're not for me
I got a feelin' this time to let go but,
I'm not sure, I think you know what I mean
Feelin' lost in the this world of love when
All I want is for you to hold on to me

Seems that you don't even try
You usually want the best for me
But your love ain't the same, baby
Seems that you don't even try
You usually want the best for me
But your love ain't the same, baby

Always thought that this would last forever
Never dreamed that I would let it go
But a new day has come to remind me
Life ain't always about what you know
Never thought that You'd give up so easy
Always knew that you would give what you gave
Now where suffering and we're stuck in the middle
But now you're busy and you've no time to stay this time

Seems that you don't even try
You usually want the best for me
But your love ain't the same, baby
Seems that you don't even try
You usually want the best for me
But your love ain't the same, baby

I'll think your pullin' away, Pullin away, I'll bring you back again, back again
I see your pullin' away, pullin' away, I'll bring you back again, back again
I'll bring you back again, back again, I think your pullin' away, pullin' away
I want you back again, back again, because your pullin' away, pullin' away

Is this really what you had in mind when,
You asked to come and be a part of my life
A steady pace had me up and imagining
That I was one day gonna be your wife
Let's not worry about what's in the past
We've got the future so lets use it to live
Another chance and a gift that is given
And now it's our time to give

Seems that you don't even try
You usually want the best for me
But your love ain't the same, baby
Seems that you don't even try
You usually want the best for me
But your love ain't the same, baby
Track Name: Funky Road
Every mornin' that I awake I gotta first give God all the praise for
Blessing me with another day that I can sing my song
At first I thought it wasn't what I should do but uh
Then I realized I was playin' the fool 'cause
Then he took me to what I call school
And that's where it began

(I realized maybe I'm fly) Yeah, yeah
(I realized maybe I'm not so shy) Maybe I'm not so shy
(And so I started to groove) Started to groove
(Started to make music that will force you to move)

(I give you music that you need to feel) Need to feel
(Just a little somethin' when you need the real) Just a little somethin'
(I said, no need to wonder, I'ma be right here) No need to worry
(Just a little soul lovin' for your ears)
(Said I give you music that you need to feel) Said I give you what you need
(Just a little somethin' when you need the real) Yeah yeah
(No need to wonder, I'ma be right here)
(Just a little soul lovin' for your ears) Let me tell you 'bout it, Here we go uh

Been steady workin' tryin' to pay the bills
I can't give up 'cause I'ma push until (And I)
Can't settle for less in another field
('Cause ooh this love is for real)
Now it ain't easy but I got to do
What I've been sent to 'cause he told me too (And I know)
If I keep pushing I'ma push on through
So I'ma keep singin' to you

(I realized maybe I'm fly) Maybe I'm fly
(I realized maybe I'm not so shy) Maybe I'm not so shy
(And so I started to groove) Started to groove
(Started to make music that will force you to move)

(Just a little somethin' when you need the real)
(No need to wonder, I'ma be right here) No need to worry
(Just a little soul lovin' for your ears)

(I wanna) (Give it to ya and when I do I ain't gon' stop)
(I wanna) (Give you somethin' that ain't never gonna stop)
(I wanna) (Give it to you, Give it to you)
(I wanna) (Make the funky music and give it to you hot) Oh I wanna give it to you
(I wanna) (Give it to ya and when I do I ain't gon' stop) Give it to you

Maybe we'll find, somethin' like this
Baby tell me, why you treat this

Maybe we'll find
Somethin' like this
Maybe we'll find
Somethin' like this

It's hard to hold you near me
For fear that you might go
And so I keep my distance
Even though I know
There's somethin' special here
What I've been lookin' for
Wish I wasn't so scared
'cause maybe then I wouldn't treat this

Like somethin' we've ever known (Maybe we'll find)
Like somethin' that comes and goes (Somethin' like this)
And why don't we let each other in 'cause (Maybe we'll find)
If we don't we gon' lose what we found (Somethin' like this)
Like somethin' we've ever known (Maybe we'll find)
Like somethin' that comes and goes (Somethin' like this)
And why don't we let each other in 'cause (Maybe we'll find)
If we don't we gon' lose what we found (Somethin' like this)

I know you're treading lightly
'cause you've been broke before
And I know why you're askin'
How's this any different from before
But the feelin' that ya had
It should explain it all
Wish you wasn't so scared
'cause maybe then we wouldn't treat this

Like somethin' you've ever known (Maybe we'll find)
Like somethin' that comes and goes (Somethin' like this)
And why don't we let each other in 'cause (Maybe we'll find)
If we don't we gon' lose what we found (Somethin' like this)
Like somethin' we've ever known (Maybe we'll find)
Like somethin' that comes and goes (Somethin' like this)
And why don't we let each other in 'cause (Maybe we'll find)
If we don't we gon' lose what we found (Somethin' like this)

(You never ever felt somethin' like this) (Maybe we can find a way)
(You never ever felt somethin' like this) (To make it through the day)
(You never ever felt somethin' like this) (Love like other lovers do)
(You never ever felt somethin' like this) (Maybe you just let me love you because)
(You never ever felt somethin' like this) (Maybe we can find a way)
(You never ever felt somethin' like this) (To make it through the day)
(You never ever felt somethin' like this) (Love like other lovers do)

Like somethin' we've ever known (Maybe we'll find)
Like somethin' that comes and goes (Somethin' like this)

(La la la la la la)

I always knew there was a you for me
And I, I always dreamed there was one that would hypnotize me
Now that I seen your face my fantasy's confirmed
No longer will I have to search for now, I learned

(Because, you are the one come from afar) Ooh you are the one come from afar
(The sun shines no where but where you are) Ooh
(I'd climb the highest mountain just to get closer to you) I would climb highest mountain
(And you show me how I could shine too)

(La la la la la la la)
(La la la la la la la)

The very moment right before you close your eyes
Is when I start to lose my breathe and fantasize
About the days we'll spend that go into the night
No longer will I have to search for what is right

(Because, you are the one come from afar) Ooh you are the one come from afar
(The sun shines no where but where you are) Oh the sun shines no where but where you are
(I'd climb the highest mountain just to get closer to you) I would climb highest mountain
(And you show me how I could shine too)

(La la la la la la la) I'm so glad that you're mine ooh
(La la la la la la la) I'm so glad that you're mine
(La la la la la la) (Bump the pretty way of sayin' it)
(La la la la la) (I just want you to know you're my baby)
(La la la) (Bump the pretty way of sayin' it)
(La la la la la) (I just want you to know you're my baby)
(La la la) (Bump the pretty way of sayin' it)
(La la la la la) (I just gotta claim my baby)
(La la la) (Bump the pretty way of sayin' it)
(La la la la la)(I just gotta claim my baby)

(You are the one come from afar) Ooh you are sent from above
(The sun shines no where but where you are) Ooh I'm so glad that you're mine
(I'd climb the highest mountain just to get closer to you) Thank you lord for sendin' me a love like him
(And you show me how I could shine too) Ooh...
