Album Notes
Kevin McGowan, The Canadian Ruckus says...
"one of the newest greatest blues and roots voices in Canada"

"Gatorman" Lape, Vice President of the Chicago Blues Society says...
"Sunday wilde's music goes to the edge of the Blues and Beyound"

The Ectophiles Guide to Good Music - Seattle says....
"Trouble Coming at's as blue as blue can be...and it really works, she reminds me of Madelaine Peyroux but wilde has her own voice"

Marcia Dawson, Roaming Reviews Magazine says...........
"wilde woman vocals, raw, rip roaring sound machine, a force to be reckoned with, yet feminine."

Issac, Junior Caves Online Magazine - Georgia
"Sometimes an artist comes along who creates such a wonderful sound that music fans will instantly fall in love with what they hear. Sunday Wilde is that artist who has nicely blended several genres of music into a unique sound that promises to entertain the masses. What makes Sunday Wilde especially appealing is the fact that she makes music that carries with it soul, passion, and meaning."

Molly Johnson says………
“I have heard the music. I am impressed.”

Stewart Communications and house concert host says…
“...attacks her songs with an intensity...moves from pleading lyricism to growling determination.”

Sunday is from the wilds of a northern Ontario small town, but she has been found singing everywhere from small logging and mining towns at coffee houses, funeral parlours, and blues joints and all the way to large festivals, house concerts and bars in bustling metropolises.

She is a powerful and intense vocalist, a rare voice that speaks from the primal soul. Sunday is a songwriter who explores the subjects of grief, addiction, love and the torment of social and family dysfunction. Her lyrics and delivery make it abundantly clear that she speaks from experience and authority. She has won jazz and blues awards for her original compositions on garageband, and has been ranked as high as number 8, on the gospel Myspace music charts in Canada.

She has played with such great performers as Reno jack, Ronnie Hayward, Nick Moss and the Flipflops, Fathead, Terry Wilkins (Roughtrade), Little Miss Higgins, David West, to name a few. Her musical influences come from a array of sources such as the wilderness, Ruth Brown, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Bessie Smith, Big Bill Broonzy mixed in with Tom Waits, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.

During a tour of the western plains, during promo tour with Reno jack (The Handsome Neds, Herald Nix, The Razorbacks) she had the opportunity to perform at the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival, Trout Forest Festival and the Blueberry Festival during the summer of 2007, while promoting her first CD recorded with Reno jack, titled Black Pearls of Wisdom.

She continues to create, explore, interpret and innovate, melding divergent styles and influences, pushing the envelope of her craft further. All the while enthralling audiences with her live performances and singular style.

Broken String of Pearls
Her second album
10 Bluesy jazzy originals
Sunday Wilde’s second album contains 10 NEW originals. She weaves the sound of vintage blues throughout, adding a touch of jazz on the edge. Wilde takes us with her looking from a variety of perspectives and moods on this album, through joyfulness, sorrow, lost love, torment, and angst. As a songwriter who writes, as it is, without compromise, her lyrical style resonates with people from all walks of life. Her vocals capture the essence of what her words speak, truth, raw passionate , powerful and beautiful.

From thought provoking pieces such as “DON”T SIT AROUND WAITING” Sunday pleads to us, to get up and make things happen for ourselves. In the track “I GUESS I DIDN”T HEAR YOU RIGHT”, she revisits 50’s era sound with a soulful piece about lost love. If you ever lost love and who hasn't, this will definitely take you to that place in your heart, . With the doomer bluesy piece called “TROUBLE COMING AT ME FROM BEHIND”, she reminds us of our own distressful times and that like herself we are not alone in that. “Johnson Avenue Scat”, co-written with Wolfe Wall, Sunday demonstrates her scatting with Wolfe's flute playing while bringing some levity to the listener. As well, the final track on the album, “PARABOLA” is composed and performed by Lucas Paulson, Sunday’s son. It is a instrumental piece that allows the listener to come down from the previous songs and a time for reflection.

The album features internationally renowned guitarist David West from Ecuador (Papa Duke Band) who plays a custom double sided guitar. As well Bass player Tom Sinkins (Bay Street Blues Band) and Wolfe Wall on flute, cello and clarinet. With Sunday wilde on vocals, and piano.

Anna Maria Stjarnell

Sunday Wilde plays a nice brand of retro blues/jazz and her vocal is warm and inviting. She's hardly reinventing the genre, but she has such fun with it that it hardly matters. "Don't sit around waiting" makes good use of the growl inherent in Wilde's vocals and evokes a nice mood. "Smooth talking man" has some nice honky tonk piano and a sassy lead vocal. "Trouble coming at me from behind" is another winner, Wilde playing deft piano and adding a sultry vocal. It's as blue as can be and it really works. She reminds me of others in the genre, most notably Madeleine Peyroux, but she has her own voice.
