With The Welcome Fire, Wendy Matthews has made an album which provides listening pleasure from beginning to end, where every song is a winner." Russell Woolf, ABC Perth.
The Welcome Fire, is Wendy's Matthews' first originals album in 12 years, with songs co written by Wendy and Josh Pyke, Megan Washington, Mark Sholtez, Rod McCormack, John Castle, Kim Richey, Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci. Produced and recorded by John Castle (Megan Washington, The Cat Empire, The Drones, Dan Parsons and The Bamboos fame), it is beautifully evocative and superbly crafted. The album is undoubtedly contemporary in sound, yet unmistakably Wendy Matthews.
"The finished album is a powerful piece of work. An album that you can easily play many times in a row without wanting to skip through a single track. Each individual song is a solo work of art." Graeme Watson, OutInPerth. The Welcome Fire not only re-establishes Wendy as one of Australia’s most influential and iconic voices and artists but also marks a new chapter in her career.
