Hailing from Vancouver Canada, singer Wanda Nowicki received most of her training and experience in Los Angeles, California.
After a summer scholarship at THE BANFF SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS, she was accepted to the LEE STRASBERG THEATRE INSTITUTE in Hollywood where she studied voice and stage performance for four years. She continued with private lessons with SETH RIGGS and ELIZABETH SABINE.
She has performed cabaret, rock, blues, and most notably jazz, in every possible venue. She's had the pleasure of sharing the stage with BIG JAY MCNEELY and RICHARD BERRY, as well as fronting her own band in Los Angeles for twenty years.
Besides her singing career, Wanda has also worked steadily in the voice over and animation industry on a variety of projects.
Her singing style has been compared to JUNE CHRISTY, but her influences are more along the lines of ABBY LINCOLN, RICKIE LEE JONES, and DELLA REESE, to name a few!
Joining forces with Steve Bagnell, Mark Bender, and Chris Potter, the WANDA NOWICKI GROUP has been playing regularly throughout the Vancouver area for over 4 years. "I've played with a lot of player's in a lot of different circumstances, but these boys are by far the most fun and professional players I have had ever had the pleasure of working with."
Wanda is also the co-host of Vancouver's hippest and most popular open mike nights - THUNDERING WORD. It takes place the 1st, 3rd, and 5th (if there is one) Sunday of every month at Cafe Montmartre on Main St.
Besides singing and hosting in Vancouver, Wanda also has extensive experience in the voice over industry. She has done commercials, animation, and looping for a variety of Japanese anime productions.
