Sunday Wilde & 1 Eyed Jacks (from the album Sunday Wilde & 1 Eyed Jacks available as a self-release)
No one can argue that The Blues is a universal soundtrack and Sunday Wilde puts it on the map of Northern Ontario (Canada). Backed by 1 Eyed Jacks, the music of Sunday Wilde brings delta heat to the Arctic Circle on the recent self-titled release, Sunday Wilde & 1 Eyed Jacks. The spit and snarl of Blues founders such as Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, and Memphis Minnie find lineage in the music of Sunday Wilde & 1 Eyed Jacks, the band sparking fire with roadhouse Blues to raise “Dead Presidents”, crawling on a swamp groove with “Evil”, walking with heavy footfalls through the somber graveyard pace of “Spirits Up My Friend”, and setting the mood to steamy for “I Guess I Didn’t Hear You Right”.
Her words dig deep into soul shadows to expose raw pain (“Show Me Mercy”), full hearts (“Love Is”), grief (“Dead Man’s Clothes”), and harsh reality (“Swear You’re Cheatin’”). Sunday Wilde & 1 Eyed Jacksgives the Blues a home at the edge of the world, putting a rock’n’roll groove into a juke joint love story with “Captured Me” and welcoming the music of Elmore James to the great white north in a slow-cooked version of “It Hurts Me Too”.
