Taken off her heartfelt release about the deep connection and the importance of communication with family called ‘The Apple Falls Far (Part 1),’ My Dear Wendy sings with such soul on the new single called ‘Head Against The Wall‘.
Amanda Gunnels aka My Dear Wendy, is an incredibly talented and well-traveled San Diego-based classically trained pianist, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, music producer and engineer, who is incredibly equally comfortable and skilled on bass guitar, acoustic guitar and drums.
This is the true life moment that so many of us have to deal with sometimes. You have been moved into a forced path for so long whilst growing up, however as you grow a bit older you feel like this is in fact not the road that you wish to drive down at all. The confusion is strong at first as you deal with this striking feeling due to the pressure to be who you were supposed to be, as you hope that you will receive the support in following your dreams, no matter if your family doesn’t feel the same way.
”After moving to Los Angeles and attending Musician’s Institute, Amanda decided to upgrade her music and create My Dear Wendy, a songwriting project that continues to be a focus of her musical career.”- My Dear Wendy
You feel her disconnected frustration that has seeped into her mind that wasn’t there before, as the sense of relief pours up her soul again when she walks away. This is the road that she is headed down and it feels right, no matter what anyone else thinks.
She sings with such a delightful tone, her life experience shines through as she brings us an indie song with hints of country, as you sing with her on this is a deeply personal song, that you know means so much to her.
‘Head Against The Wall’ from the soulful Atlanta-born, San Diego-based multi-talented pianist and singer-songwriter My Dear Wendy, is a splendid single all about standing up for yourself and opening up your own door to finding fulfillment. With Part 2 on its way, this is a song that grabs you courageously by the heart and doesn’t let go.
