About Wendy Owens
Wendy Owens and Renegade formed in 2005 with some of the area’s most esteemed music legends. With over 100 years experience combined, the band’s talent and experience quickly earned them a reputation as upstate NY’s hottest country act triggering several unique opportunities. In 2006, the band became the official back up band for the local “Colgate Country Music Showdown”. The following year, the band competed in a local “battle of the bands” to win the privilege of opening for “Lonestar” at a local concert venue. This experience prompted them to begin creating their own original country music and as 2008 began, Wendy Owens and Renegade started the long and arduous process of song writing. In June of 2008 they were graced with yet another amazing opportunity to open the show for a National recording artist…this time it was Dierks Bentley. They were able to perform three of their original songs during the show, that the crowd welcomed and loved. And now in 2009, the band has released its debut CD “South by North” to critical acclaim and had the extreme privilege to share the stage with country music superstars Trace Adkins and Big & Rich. The band is now reaching far beyond its borders for new venues to promote their CD and in search of that ever elusive brass ring to take them to the top. And signs show they are close to finding it as their first single “3 Minute Heartache” is tearing up the independent country charts and heading for the top 10.
