Wild, passionate and empowering, Australian Visionary Songstress Wendy Rule,
weaves together music, story and ritual to take her audience on an otherworldly
journey of depth and passion. Drawing on her deep love of Nature and lifelong
fascination with the worlds of mythology and Magic, Wendy’s songs combine
irresistible melodies with rich aural textures and a rare personal honesty.
With the release of her 10th studio album Black Snake, Wendy
has once again proven that she is one of Australia’s most uniquely gifted and
prolific artists. With an extraordinary voice that moves from soaring heights to
intimate whispers, Wendy explores all facets of
emotional world. Darkness and light, night and day, life and death are equally
For the past 13 years Wendy has committed to an extensive international
touring schedule, and has recently moved to the USA. A fully
independent artist, she has developed a loyal and dedicated international fanbase. The overwhelming success of her recent ‘Pozible’ Crowdfunding campaign
for Black Snake, (which raised over $26,000 for the creation of the album
and an accompanying film clip) is a clear indication of the level of genuine
ground level support and appreciation for her work.
Written primarily in the wilderness of New Mexico, Black Snake is an
album of transformation, of stripping back, of death and rebirth, and
celebration of Life. Featuring gorgeous instrumentation – including cello by her
long term collaborator Rachel Samuel, Native American Flute by her husband
Timothy Van Diest, and ambient electric guitar, bass guitar and organ by her son
Reuben George Bloxham – it highlights Wendy’s maturity as a writer, and her
willingness to continue to evolve and grow as an artist.
Dedicated to a life of spiritual growth and healing, Wendy shares her
insights and wisdom through beautifully deep and visionary lyrics. Each of her
albums is a transformational journey that weaves together ancient mythological
themes and Wendy’s own stories of love, loss, grief and joy. The results are
epic, unique and powerful.
But it is in her live performances that we are fully able to experience the
full power of Wendy’s art. Every concert becomes a ritual, co-created by Wendy
and her audience. From her intimate solo acoustic House Concerts, to her large
scale events with a full band and string section, Wendy brings a unique magic to
Since she first graced her high school stage at the age of 15, Wendy has been
passionately dedicated to live performance. After honing her craft as a singer
in various jazz outfits in Melbourne in her early 20’s, she went through a
creative epiphany at the age of 25, after the birth of her son, and began
writing prolifically. This led to her collaboration with long term musical
partner and close friend, cellist Rachel Samuel. After various band incarnations
and innumerable gigs in Melbourne’s thriving live music scene, her first album
Zero was released in 1996.
Alongside her music, Wendy is also celebrated as an international mentor and
teacher of Spiritual Self Development. Her online course, Living a Life of
Magic, which she presents with her husband and Magical Partner Timothy Van
Diest, is the culmination of her many years of Spiritual practice as a Witch.
Fiercely independent, Wendy has carved a unique path through the musical
mainstream. Renowned for years among the world’s alternative spiritual
communities, she is now deservedly gaining a much broader following. Her unique
live performances and her beautifully atmospheric and richly emotive songs
continue to entice an ever growing audience into her magical realm.
