Wendy and Lisa (occasionally also known as The Girl Bros.) are a musical duo consisting of Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman. Best known for their collaborations with Prince in the early-mid 1980s, Melvoin and Coleman began their career as a duo in 1986. They currently score the music for the NBC-TV hit "Heroes" as well as the upcoming Fox series "Virtuality" and Showtime’s "Nurse Jackie". They have released 5 albums, with the most current release being White Flags of Winter Chimneys which was released in December 2008. Biography The two were childhood friends, both from musical families which often performed together; Wendy's father, Mike Melvoin, was an in-demand session musician and was president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) in the 1980s, while Lisa's father, Gary L. Coleman (not the actor) was also an in-demand session musician for jazz artists. Although Wendy and Lisa may be better known for being part of The Revolution, their careers began long before joining the group.

As a pre-teen, Lisa joined her sister Cole Ynda, brother David Coleman, and Jonathan Melvoin (Wendy’s brother) to form the band “Waldorf Salad”[1]. In addition to music, Lisa also ventured into acting appearing in “Sarah T – Portrait of A Teenage Alcoholic” a movie starring Linda Blair and released in 1975[2]. Although Wendy mainly plays acoustic and electric guitar, she is also credited with playing bass guitar, harmonica, oud, tamboora, drums, and congas on the “Eroica” album. In addition, Lisa mainly plays piano and keyboard, however, she is credited with also playing the harmonica, drum, acoustic guitar, harmonium, hurdy gurdy on the “Eroica” album. [edit] The Revolution In 1980, Lisa Coleman replaced Gayle Chapman in Prince's touring band[3]. Coleman was asked to contribute vocals to several tracks over his next few albums.

In 1983, Dez Dickerson left the band over religious conflicts. Coleman suggested Melvoin as a replacement. Prince accepted Melvoin into the band as they began to record Purple Rain[4]. The film and album were a phenomenon, turning Prince and the newly named The Revolution into superstars.

Prince's personal life also became intertwined with Melvoin's when he began dating her twin sister Susannah. The team of Coleman and Melvoin worked extremely well together. Prince saw this and tapped their talents for the albums following Purple Rain. Their influence was particularly heard on several tracks on the Parade album, the soundtrack to Prince's film Under the Cherry Moon. In an ironic parallel to the conflicts in the film Purple Rain, the duo felt they were not getting the recognition and credit they deserved despite their growing contributions[5].

During 1986 Wendy and Lisa became increasingly disillusioned with Prince's decision to expand the Revolution with non-musicians, such as Wally Safford and Gregory Allen Brooks, and Prince's increasing machismo that these new members brought with them. Unhappy and vocal about their feelings, they were eventually convinced to remain with the band and to go on tour that year with the "Hit and Run" shows. However, Prince felt spurned and by the end of the tour he had already decided he would dissolve The Revolution once the tour was complete. Hence, by October 1986, Coleman and Melvoin (along with Bobby Z.) were dismissed by Prince, disrupting the Dream Factory project that was already completed and effectively dissolving The Revolution[6]. [edit] Contributions Prince cultivated a number of artists who were eventually labeled "protégés".

These artists, often female artists but occasionally bands (like The Family) usually contributed vocals to music that Prince had written music and lyrics for and produced. Because of their sometimes outlandish onstage appearances, the duo of "Wendy and Lisa" (much like Sheila E.) are often miscategorized as being part of Prince's protégé harem. However, Melvoin and Coleman (like Sheila E.) were clearly professional musicians in their own right. Regardless of critical assessments of either Wendy and Lisa's or Prince's work, the duo definitely had an influence and impact on Prince's sound. The pop/blue eyed soul/funk hybrid can be heard on Purple Rain, Around the World in a Day and Parade.

Their influence is also extremely prominent on a number of unreleased songs recorded together with Prince during 1984, 1985 and 1986, during which they would either co-write material, co-produce and co-compose. Prince would often create the basic tracks and leave it to the female duo to finish, adding their own unique embellishments along the way. Prince's music after their departure became significantly more funk-driven, while their more psychedelic and ethereal style can be heard clearly on their first few albums. Some believe that Wendy and Lisa’s influence on Prince’s music was substantial and drove some of the most creative music in his career. For example, regarding Lisa, Per Nilsen has stated that “The increasing complexity of Prince’s music over the years, can to some extent, be traced to Lisa’s influence” [82].

In addition, Alex Hahn has stated that the “duo’s departure from Prince’s fold took away an element that would ultimately prove irreplaceable” [144]. More specifically, Hahn attributes Coleman’s greatest impact on Prince’s music to “her expressive playing, which added an entirely new dimension to his live sound” [35]. Although not everyone may agree on the magnitude of Wendy and Lisa on Prince’s music, one can not deny their influence on the Around the World in a Day, Parade, and Sign O’ The Times albums. [edit] On their own The next year, the duo released an album simply entitled Wendy and Lisa with Columbia Records. The lead single, "Waterfall" received some airplay, and the music video was played on MTV and VH1.

The album was a moderate success, but did not approach the sales figures of The Revolution. The sound was a continuation of the ethereal/dance/R&B fusion that had been the hallmark of their work with Prince; many Prince fans that were more fond of his funkier music did not follow the duo's work. They released a follow up album, Fruit at the Bottom, which although not a commercial success, did receive some critical acclaim. After a few years, the duo signed with Virgin Records (already their label in Europe) and released Eroica, an album with a more alternative rock feel. They had a minor radio and dance club hit with the single "Strung Out".

In 1991, Virgin UK released Re-mix-In-a-Carnation, a selection of club mixes from the first three albums as remixed by producers like The Orb, William Orbit, and Nellee Hooper. In the mid-Nineties, Wendy and Lisa worked on several movie projects with record producer Trevor Horn, including session work with Seal and vocals on the soundtrack for Toys and their first scoring work, for Dangerous Minds. During this period, they worked to record a full length album under Horn's production, however the project (sometimes mistakenly called Friendly Fire by fans and bootleggers) has never been released. Feeling confined by the "Wendy and Lisa" moniker, the duo enlisted alternative producer Tchad Blake (Soul Coughing, Cibo Matto) and released a CD in 1998 under the name "Girl Bros". Their sound had begun to evolve on "Eroica" and while Girl Bros was still pop/funk based, it also could be categorized as alternative music. A second Girl Bros.

album "White Flags of White Chimneys" is now available to purchase and download at www.wendyandlisa.com prior to a physical release in March 2009. Wendy and Lisa’s alternative sound (which is a hybrid of funk/jazz/r&b/electronica/classical piano) that was born on “Eroica” and further developed on “Girl Bros” is more fully developed on their most recent album release, White Flags of Winter Chimneys. White Flags (released in December 2008) marks Wendy and Lisa’s first album in 10 years and is described by Wendy as “their best work”[7]. The album is a gorgeous kaleidoscope of song-compositions with influences ranging from trance to electronica to 70’s funk and straight up rock and roll. Unlike their previous albums, White Flags is released completely independently and can only be obtained through their website[8]. The album represents the fruition of their goal to produce an album without the constraints and forced musical direction of a major record label.

During interviews, Wendy and Lisa have commented on how they felt pressured by record executives to put out music more reminiscent of Prince’s music and cite their first two albums as examples[9]. However, White Flags of Winter Chimneys represents Wendy and Lisa’s most self-controlled project to date. Similar to their more recent work (“Eroica” and “Girl Bros"), all music, lyrics, and instruments are written and performed by Wendy and Lisa. [edit] Other credits Shortly after the completion of the Parade project, Coleman and Melvoin left the Revolution, and started their own musical duo, Wendy and Lisa (also known as Girl Bros). The duo are also continuing in their successful television-scoring career.

Currently, they are in their third season of scoring the NBC-TV hit “Heroes,” and they are taking on the scoring duties for the upcoming “Virtuality” on Fox and “Nurse Jackie” on Showtime. They have received the prestigious ASCAP award for Composer’s of the Year for their work on Dangerous Minds, the theme to HBO’s Carnivale, Crossing Jordan and Heroes. [edit] Other projects * Melvoin and Coleman have made numerous contributions to film scores and to television themes (for example, they wrote theme music and background scores for TV-shows such as Crossing Jordan, Bionic Woman, Carnivàle and Heroes). Their latest film score was for Something New, released in February 2006. * As sessionists and producers, they have also appeared, together or separately, on albums by Sheryl Crow, Eric Clapton, Neil Finn, Joni Mitchell, Meshell Ndegeocello, Michael Penn, Liz Phair, Seal, and Victoria Williams, to name a few. They have been frequent collaborators with k.d.

lang, whom they first worked with during Eroica; they have played on all of her subsequent albums. In 2005, Wendy Melvoin produced the first commercial album by The Like. * Melvoin's brother-in-law Doyle Bramhall II is another frequent collaborator; Wendy and Lisa performed on his first and second albums (producing the first) in addition to performing alongside him on several other artists' sessions. In the summer of 2005, Wendy and Lisa performed live as Pacifico in a supergroup band that also included Bramhall, Susannah Melvoin, drummer Abe Laboriel Jr., and hip hop writer/producer Mike Elizondo Jr. (better known for his work with Eminem and 50 Cent).

The set of shows at Hollywood's Largo was marked by special guest performances that included Coleman's sister Cole Ynda, singer Nikka Costa, and Eric Clapton. * Another supergroup, Funksway, is featured in the 2006 music documentary Before the Music Dies. That incarnation replaces Abe Laboriel Jr. with The Roots' ?uestlove and adds Erykah Badu. In addition to its featured performance in the movie, the group played a live set during the 2006 South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas to celebrate the film's world premiere. * The duo's somewhat erratic relationship with Prince has continued; in 2006, the duo accompanied Prince on-stage during his performance at the 2006 Brit Awards in London, where they performed a medley which opened with "Te Amo Corazon", segued into "Fury" then into "Purple Rain" then ending in Let's Go Crazy.

It was the first time in 18 years that the three had played together in front of a live audience (Wendy and Lisa joined Prince onstage for a 1988 stop on the [[Lovesexy]] tour in Minneapolis) (Sheila E. also joined the band on-stage). Prince's 2007 album Planet Earth features appearances by Wendy & Lisa on the songs "The One U Wanna C" and "Lion of Judah." Melvoin accompanied Prince at the 07.07.07 Target Center concert & the 1st Avenue aftershow, in Minneapolis where Prince introduced her as "one of my best friends," as well as exclusive appearances at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel that included Prince's first performance of 1999 since he "retired" it in that year. * Melvoin played guitar on the song "She's Not Me" on Madonna's 2008 album Hard Candy. Pharrell Williams, the song’s producer, and Madonna simultaneously sing “Wendeee!” (a shout out to Melvoin) during the song which is reminiscent of Prince’s “Little Girl Wendy’s Parade” exclaimed by Prince during the song “Kiss”. * Melvoin and Coleman collaborated with Grace Jones for her 2008 album Hurricane.
