Wendy Starland ~ An artist giving back; "Kindness, Pass it on." - Podcast and Video

Wendy Starland - LA / NYC...and the world.
An artists giving back to the community, and the world of music.
I "met" Wendy years ago through my start up of Texas Online Radio, you can read my previous post here, but this posting is all about Wendy.  A true American artist who does fantastic work, has a great sound, and believes in giving back to the community, her fans and some really fine causes.  Enjoy!  All links to Wendy posted below.
This Podcast features the songs, "Garden of Temptation" and "Holiday" and "Stolen Love".
On the KTOR netTV playlist below, I've featured "Dancing With The Sea", "Love Will Come To You", and "Stolen Love" in collaboration with Luisella Chiarini and A.C.O. Val Vibrata Orchestra.

...from Wendy's websites.
Wendy Starland was named VH1's “Best Emerging Artist” in the nationwide contest, Step Up And Rock. Starland was also honored by The Songwriter's Hall Of Fame for her top 10 hit song, Dancing With The Sea. Her single was released in Europe alongside multi-platinum artists, Norah Jones, Feist, and Edie Brickell, to name a few. Her song landed at #8 on the charts, giving her the opportunity to tour throughout Europe to thousands of fans. Starland was featured on the Songs Of Love For Japan album to support Tsunami Relief efforts along with Tori Amos, Sara Bareilles, Ani DiFranco, Antigone Rising, Brandi Carlisle, Toby Lightman, Lenka and others.

Wendy was solely responsible for discovering multi-Grammy winner, Lady GaGa, and landed her a production deal with multi-platinum producer, Rob Fusari (Beyonce, Jessica Simpson, etc.) that resulted in GaGa signing major label record and publishing deals. Wendy and Lady GaGa have written songs together over the years while Starland was also helping to develop GaGa's creative and marketing strategy. Starland is a featured lead vocalist on multi-platinum artist Moby’s Grammy nominated album, Last Night, which went to #2 on the Billboard charts.

Donna Karan, celebrity clothing line Boy Meets Girl, Pink Pump, P2, Cakewalk by Roland, and Mobile Vision Player, are all using her music and image in their campaigns to represent their multi-million dollar companies.

Her songs have been heard in countless movies and TV shows, including MTV's hit series "The Hills" the lead promos for 2 NBC primetime series, "Las Vegas" and "Hawaii" and ABC's "Regis and Kelly." Wendy collaborated with legends and Grammy winners for her upcoming album: Stephen Bishop, Tony Levin, Jerry Marotta, Arturo O'Farrill, Oz Noy and Conductor Luisella Chiarini with the A.C.O. Val Vibrata Symphony Orchestra in Abruzzo, Italy. Wendy's highly anticipated album, "Garden Of Temptation" will be released worldwide later this year.

Starland is the Founder and CEO of Give Back Entertainment, the premiere philanthropic record label and marketing platform with worldwide distribution through Universal/INgrooves.

    Great work Wendy!

  3. I had a specific agreement with Fusari before searching for the artist. He asked me to search for a female artist under the age of 25 who had the characteristics to be the female equivalent to the lead singer of The Strokes. Someone who was edgy, bold, energetic, confident. Someone you can’t take your eyes off of. That was Stefani Germanotta to a tee. I attended about 50 live shows and searched for over 8 months before discovering Lady Gaga and introducing her to Rob.
