DAILY The Gay Place  January 30, 2015, by Kate X Messer
"...There's a certain quality, one of them-thar je ne sais quois in Wendy Colonna's voice that sends writers skittering around to come up with unique ways to describe it.

Girlie Action
Girlie action
Music Review  February 10, 2006, by Margaret Moser
"...Left over from "Girlie Action"'s 2005 shelf but not overlooked were notable releases from Cheryl Bliss and Wendy Colonna. Colonna's Right Where I Belong was produced by local pop savant Stephen Doster and follows 2002's Red with polished songwriting, as in "Coffee Today" and "Fe Fi Fo Fum." The Louisiana native blends her roots rock with sage wisdom and equal parts sultry smoke and swamp-dipped soul in her voice, a potent spice for anyone's gumbo..."

Wendy Colonna
Music Review  August 10, 2017, by Rachel Rascoe
"...On this exploring release, Wendy Colonna pages through a menagerie of pop crossovers into indie rock, blues, and Americana. The now-veteran Austin singer-songwriter backflips through sentimental choruses on the strength of her Lucinda Williams-kissed troubadour tone and poppier moments of Sheryl Crow..."
