Wendy Oldfield first made a name for herself on radio performing the hit 'This Boy' with rock outfit The Sweatband in the early eighties. After further success with songs like "Tonight", "Shape of Her Body", 'This Boy' and many years of touring and performing, she left the group to start a solo career.
Her first solo album Beautiful World set the wheels in motion for a succession of hits, including "Real World", "Acid Rain", "Miracle" and "Don't Stop Believing". Wendy's vocal performance on the album won her the Octave award (1992) for Best Female Vocalist and a nomination for Song of the Year ("Miracle").
Wendy also branched out into composition and arrangement, writing soundtracks for commercials, film and television. She was nominated for an MNet film score award in 1995 and wrote soundtracks for Leon Schuster's Sweet and Short and There's a Zulu on my stoep. Her song "Acid Rain" was chosen as the theme song for a 180 episode series Nature on Track which has appeared on networks around the world.
The hour-long, in-depth interview will be filmed for Rolling Stone SA, and includes an intimate short musical performance. The event will take place at Decodance Pool Lounge, Canterbury Street, Zonnebloem, Cape Town.
