Catch this interview of Wendy and Kirk on

The Midnight Circus   and Music on the Couch

Bay Area pianist/vocalist Wendy DeWitt (who was part of Hank Ballard’s band) sure knows how to boogie. Teamed with nifty Norton Buffalo drummer Kirk Harwood, she delivers a rousing set of blues and boogie-woogie. DeWitt wrote eight of the 11 numbers here. They’re impressive - authentically emotive lyrics and strong, stirring melodies. A Willie Dixon cover is equally dynamic. Guitarist Steve Freund’s tasty licks add to the sizzle. Among the album’s highlights are “Built to Last,” “Never Be Too Much,” “I Want To Believe You,” and “Everybody’s Crying for Something.” Guitar, bass and horns bring extra spice, but the combo of just piano and drums packs equal wallop. Throughout, DeWitt’s earthy, soul-fueled vocals excite, as does her rollicking work on the keys.
