Biography

Wendy McClain is bass player from Greenville, SC. Her musical journey began at the age of 12, the year in school when students could choose a music program to join. Mr. Magee, being an upright bassist, advised “You're tall, you should play the bass.” With this advice, Wendy was in business.
Later, she expanded to the bass guitar. As she improved over the years, she realized the importance of the bass to all kinds of music and enjoyed watching the heads of the crowd bob together in unison to her bass lines.
When time came to go to college, there was no other major considered. As she studied music at Southeastern University in Florida, she listened to anything she could get her hands on and played with any group she could find. She particularly enjoyed playing in the school's Jazz Band and smaller jazz combos. She spent her summers traveling with a Gospel group.
Now, Wendy can play just about any style, sight read, improvise and play in the pocket. She is also easy to work with, accepts criticism, has a wonderful attitude, is punctual and does not have a big ego. Wendy aspires to travel with her bass guitar and groove around the world.
