​Sunday Wilde (from the album Peace in Trouble available as a self-release) (by Brian Liggett)
Sunday Wilde has managed to bring a bit of the Big Easy to the wilderness of Northern Ontario. The Canadian vocalist, hailing from somewhere close to the Artic Circle in the vastness that is that aforementioned part of Canada, has as much New Orleans swing and southern Blues bravado as anyone from hailing from The Crescent City. Sunday Wilde’s latest, Peace in Trouble, is a piano driven earthy Blues, hearty and strong amidst stripped down instrumentation. Sunday Wilde brings you into a gritty nightclub on her sultry album opener “Trouble”, her growl matched by the harmonica of Harpdog Brown, who adds dirty harp throughout the album. 
A clarinet bounces with her New Orleans boogie piano on “Never Get to Win” and “All Alone”. “Too Damn Cute”, once again with Harpdog Brown, is loaded with a Bluesy chug and “Will Never Stop” is a heartbreaker of a ballad. “Wondering If He Might” has Wilde pondering the locale and actions of her man in a rousing Blues number, Sunday’s vocals gritty and aggressive as she rolls into “He Does It”, this time Wilde praising her man’s more seductive and satisfactory nature. “Peace for Everyone” is a somber closer, a gospel blues ballad that wraps up a good-vibe record on a serious note. The horns and Brown’s harp give Peace in Trouble a tight, sharp and punchy nudge into boogie territory. But Sunday Wilde provides all the heavy lifting, she and her keyboards laying down a timeless sound that is as much 1950 as it is 2021.
