‘Little Bitty Wendy Biscuit’ is the pet name given to her at birth by her late Ozark- born Father. He would proudly tell the church choir- master how baby biscuit would sing herself to sleep with hymn melodies before her first birthday. At three years of age she was allowed to join the Children’s Choir and although she couldn’t read the words to the hymns, she could read the music.

Classically trained in Choral singing and on the Cello throughout her early years, she begged and pleaded for a guitar and one fateful Christmas, her dream came true at 12 years old. Wendy sat down the very next day and wrote her first song.

Wendy BiscuitWhile continuing her classical training, as a teenager Wendy explored many types of music from Punk Rock to Mongolian throat singing, to classical Indian Bhajan. Her first Professional live performance took place at the CiTR Shindig competition at the famous Vancouver Venue, ‘The Railway Club’ as the lead singer of a Techno Industrial band- THE DEPROGRAMMERS. She was 16, and already had songwriting credits for composing the theme song to SHAW TV’s (at that time Rogers Cable) URBAN DEMENTIA.

After challenging herself to write 40 songs in one year with an all-original female duo “Hawkins Revenge” Inspired by her life-long muse and musical genius, Paul Simon, she found herself performing her own unique brand of harmony and counterpoint on stages such as The Historic Yale Hotel and other world- class venues.

She discovered blues music by association with some of the best Musicians in Vancouver. She didn’t know what would happen when she began BLUES BOOT CAMP with Bassist Jack Lavin of Powder Blues. He provided her with a wealth of information and stage experience to hone her craft as a professional songstress.

Now, Wendy Biscuit integrates her diverse musical history with a love of the sound and feel of 1920’s-1960’s swing music and jump blues to carve out an original unique journey of creativity, expression and success!
