Brenda Burch infuses Country music with Pop, Rock and Soul. A petite powerhouse.
Genre: Country: Contemporary Country
From the time Brenda was a baby, her parents were well-aware of, at least, the sheer volume of her voice. Her dad recalls her crying louder than any baby he’d ever heard. Projecting her voice came in handy at three years old when she made her performance debut singing for an audience of two thousand.

She began singing professionally at age six, recording the theme song for an educational film and later recorded vocals for commercials and national children’s albums.

Growing up, Brenda listened to and performed a wide range of music, but Country music always felt like home. She also studied piano, dance and excelled at sports. As quarterback for her junior high Powder Puff football team and captain of her high school volleyball team, athletics played a big part in her life, but music was a constant companion.

Back in 2009 act WILD WILD WESTT featured the powerful vocals of Salt Lake City's Brenda Burch and the writing / guitar playing of Michael Adrian who had been writing, recording, and playing for over 20 years touring Canada and the USA extensively. 
Their debut CD featured a wide range of country influences including honky tonk, rock & roll, Nashville pop, country ballads, and Southern rock. The title cut got some airplay in the UK ("I think she's got a terrific voice" - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire)
