The pride of Atikokan, Ontario (north-east of Thunder Bay, with a population of a few thousand folks) must be Sunday Wilde. I’ve been a fan of hers for 7 years since stumbling across her songs when I was doing The Ruckus, and have been following her career ever since. She has “the voice” and her band has “the style” and if everyone else in the world loved really good blues, they would all be buying her records.

She has a fascinating story, this Sunday Wilde. She only started singing (for reals) when she was in her 40s, and in the intervening few years has made a huge name for herself in the blues community. She has continually had a number 1 spot on BB King’s Sirius FM station, has played show across Canada, and has been winning awards internationally on a regular basis. She’s got it, and is just waiting for you to decide you want it.

Her most recent album, He Digs Me, features her trademark controlled wail, and some amazing songwriting. Check Sunday’s Midnight Blues, for example.

She wears her heart on her sleeve, and writes songs about her deepest feelings, unfiltered and beautiful.

Here’s Why is that man telling me to hush? from He Gave Me a Blue Nightgown.
