Sunday Wilde“This is as authentic as it gets in the 21st Century” JD Nash, American Blues Scene

 “Her voice is sultry and sexy, the music is pure and honest” BarnowlBlues

“She is not afraid to sing about, shall we say, relations between a man and a woman.  But she does it in a discreet and sophisticated way, most of the time.” H. Kaplan, No Depression & Twangrila

Blueberries & Grits is 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 two-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.

Blueberries & Grits 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.
