Video Premiere: Wendy Colonna — “Dirty Things”

Juli Thanki | June 11th, 2014

Even if you don’t own any of singer-songwriter Wendy Colonna’s albums, you’ve almost certainly heard her music recently: she wrote and performed a song for a new Coca-Cola commercial and Starbucks has added her music to their in-store playlist.

Also, the Louisiana-born, Austin-based artist has been featured on E145 before, when she let us poke around her record collection for a Friday Five a couple months ago. A couple days ago, Colonna sent over a new music video for “Dirty Things,” a track from her solid, soulful 2013 release, Nectar; today, we’re pleased to share it with you.

Check out “Dirty Things” and dance along.
