“This lady is pure blues from her piano chops to her unique and addictive vocal styling. I can’t stop and I won’t” Harpdog Brown
Sunday’s previous releases have spun worldwide on roots and blues stations and continue to be charted at the Roots Music Report. She has won a number of song writing awards and this is her 8th release. The recording brings back the roots of her sound – live, off the floor, and on this album she is accompanied by her back up musicians, the 1 Eyed jacks. The 11 tracks are comprised of the usual Sunday lyrical recipe of man troubles, depression, and tormented love, her rocking piano style, as well as her ‘one of a kind’ vocals.
Feature tracks on this selection are a tale of hope and grief titled “Dead Man’s Clothes’’, a jazzy blues tune that focuses on the need of passing on the belongings of those departed, and what burdens they bring. Sunday does play homage to a few blues classics in this selection, most notably the blues standard “It Hurts Me Too” – which she has turned into a sullen tale, at once sparsely sad and eerily romantic. Opening up the album, Sunday creates a new spin on the classic Willie Dixon tune ‘Evil’ . In this selection of songs you will hear some honky tonk, some sullen blues ballads, as well as a few jazzier tunes.
The 1 eyed jacks features Colin Craig on drums, a multi-genre percussionist who studied jazz drumming at Humber College and Arek Chamski on upright bass, who performs with a number of bands in the Thunder Bay area. Guitar World magazine featured artist Ari Lahdekorpi, of Vancouver, plays guitar on many of the tracks. All but one track were engineered and mixed by Gregory W. Schultz, this being his third album collaborating with Sunday. The special track “Spirits Up My Friend”, dedicated to her late partner Reno Jack, was produced by Mark Saville at Vintage Room studio.

Blueberries & Grits - 2016 Release
The sixth release from award winning blues and roots artist, Sunday wilde from Northern Ontario. This album was recorded in Memphis and Clarksdale, produced by 2 time Grammy nominee Gary Vincent , and is the result of two major trips from Northern Ontario to the Delta.
Sunday retains the theme of “men” in her sixth release with her prayer to god to “Show Me A Man” with the list of things that she wanted to find in the perfect man and “That Man Drives Me Mad” her take on a complicated relationship. She also covers a Willie Dixon tune “John the Conquer Root” twisting the meaning of the original into what a woman can do to get by in the world and changing the mood to be an eerie tale. She also does a Ruth Brown Cover called Daddy Daddy, a soft and sultry cover bringing back the feel of Mississippi John Hurt into the tune, as well as a sexy sad duet with Reno Jack called “One of These Days”. All the songs retain her distinctive delivery and vocals with an array of emotions.
The album contains ten songs, with all acoustic instruments including a 1857 cottage pump organ played by Grammy winner Billy Earheart from the Amazing Rhythm Aces, trumpet by Roger Reupert, upright bass by Reno Jack, Dobro by Sturgis Nikides, drums by Rickey “Quicksand” Martin, washboard by April Mae, other guitar tracks by Dave Fecca, Johnny Cass, Robert Hughes, and backup vocals by Watermelon Slim and Mandy Lemons.
