tormented dirty joyful sexy and sad—an emotional roller coaster seeped in the blues with a smidgen of jazz

“With its blend of modern recording technology and a warm, vintage sound and feel that sweeps the listener back to the heyday of jazzy blues, this new material from Sunday wilde is the artist’s best work to date. “
Brant Zwicker, At the Crossroads Blues Radio, CA

Sunday wilde’s third album “What Man?! Oh THAT man !!! launched this winter out of the wilds of northern Ontario. All but one of the tunes are original blues and jazz that cover a range of heartfelt emotions such as grief, anger, torment, sadness, frustration and many other side effects of love and grief.

The album features Rockabilly Hall of famer and crazy jazz cat Ronnie Hayward (Ronnie Artur, Ronnie Hayward Trio, The Nervous Fellas) on gut stringed upright bass. Ronnie’s superb edgy feel on bass gives the entire album an authentic rooted sound. Equally unique in his addition is David West, internationally renowned guitarist that has been featured on Rez Blues TV and tours worldwide with the Papa Duke Band (Ukraine) David plays a custom double sided guitar and is Ecuadorian, and his musical intricacies on a variety of guitars throughout this album add a modern, international and old world sound.

The album kicks off with a forceful dirty honky tonk blues “That man drives me mad” A song that all of us can relate to when we are in love, as love tends to drive us mad now and then. Sunday sings, moans and sighs that love madness that we have all felt.

“Sunday’s midnight blues“, a slow jazz blues tune - no matter what walk of life or circumstance we exist in, no one in the world is immune to the midnight blues. “My Baby’s Dead” a crazy gypsy blues tune about a woman’s nightmare after losing her baby is angst ridden and full of power. The final track on the cd “Time To Say goodbye” a hauntingly sad blues tune, about that time in one’s life, as we all have, to move on, and in order to that we have to say goodbye in our hearts.

Sunday is an intense musician vocalist/writer that lives in the wilderness, and has played anywhere from funeral parlours to small logging towns to blues festivals, this is her third CD and she has been awarded three Ontario Arts Council grants, and has shared the stage with such great blues artists as Nick Moss and the Flip Flops, Fathead, and Little Miss Higgins. Her last album Broken String of Pearls (2009) was #6 on the Roots Report in Canada, #1 on for Roots/Blues at LURADIO, THE Alternate Root featured a song on a sampler and her music has been playing internationally at blues and roots stations.

Anna Maria Stjarnell

Brilliant and sassy record.
: Sunday Wilde follows her previous bluesy outing with an even wilder and more focused adventure. Her sassy vocals are as strong as ever, and her piano playing is ace. The feline opener “That man drives me mad” is a high-octane opener as Wilde suggestively pants and growls her words out. The more subtle approach in “Sunday’s midnight blues” works fine and shows her voice at its deepest and most beguiling. “My baby’s dead” is an Eastern European tinged nightmare about a grieving woman that allows Wilde room to roam with her peerless vocal prowess. She’s made a fabulous record that should appeal to many.

This is such a great album that deserves to be in everyone's collection. I was going to do a track by track write up, but every track deserves the same comment - excellent, superb mix of blues and jazz with inspirational vocals and excellent musicianship. This woman can sing with a depth that has the ability to move the listener and keep them coming back for more. Thoroughly recommended and without doubt my album of the year.

Sunday Wilde - Canada's Best-Kept Secret
Sunday Wilde, a self-taught pianist, vocalist and composer from Atikokan, ON (dubbed “The Canoeing Capital of Canada”), dismisses the various comparisons attributed to her vocal chops, and rightly so, as they do stand out, at least in tonal quality. That being said, her natural display of versatility will eventually award her a prominent position within the cadre of both bygone and contemporary dames of jazz/blues fame, along with the likes of Bessie Smith, Dinah Washington, Big Mama Thornton, Mae West, Mama Cass Elliott, Eden Brent, Little Miss Higgins, and Terra Hazelton. Unapologetically, when I listen to her recordings, I feel like I’ve stepped into an old-time honky-tonk barroom, way before that genre of music became accepted into the Caucasian musical mainstream.

Her compositions focus almost exclusively on romantic interaction and the various collisions and harmonies involved in same, and who can’t relate to that in some way? The lyrics are not at all characterized by the industrially prevalent “I love you, baby, but you are a jerk” variety, but you still get the impression, however more eloquently stated, that this woman’s emotions (happy, sad, or angry) are not to be trifled with.

I love her stripped-down musical approach to recording, specifically on the What Man? Oh, That Man! release, which is comprised solely of Wilde on piano and vocals, Ronnie Hayward on upright bass (such a theatrical instrument!), and David West on tasty guitar melodies that always blend in perfectly with the piano and bass lines. It’s the kind of sound you could appreciate equally well in a small club, a large concert hall, and, of course, on radio or TV airings. My favourite tracks include “I Can’t Shake That Guy”, “My Baby’s Dead”, “Sunday’s Midnight Blues”, “Don’t Bother Me”, and “Trouble Coming at Me”, but I could personally listen to the whole thing in repeat mode.

Sunday Wilde gets my priority vote for “Best (Female Canadian) Blueswoman” of 2011, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she decided to record/perform a rock song or two in the near future. It would be an effortless vocal endeavour.

Sunday Wilde gone WILD!
Powerful performance by Sunday Wilde at the Ruby Moon restaurant in Thunder Bay! Sunday performed the hits of her CD "What man? Oh, That Man!" on February 5th to a full house. Beautiful jazzy/blues music, voice range that takes you from raunchy blues bar to the sound of an angel, lyrics with so much depth, and a stage style and presence like no other! Thoroughly enjoyed her passionate performance and have been playing her CD non-stop since then! You definitely don't want to miss out on this one!
