CD Blueberries and Grits The sixth release from award winning blues and roots artist from Northern Ontario. This album was recorded in Memphis and Clarksdale, produced by 2 time Grammy nominee Gary Vincent who works with Charlie Musselwhite and Morgan Freeman. 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 and Robert Hughes, and backup vocals by Watermelon Slim and Mandy Lemons. 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 Mad drives me mad” her take on an insane relationship. She also covers Willie Dixon tune “John the Conquer Root” twisting the meaning of the original into a street worker and what she has to 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”. Sunday has won numerous awards with her past releases including 2x win of the Independent Music Awards voters choice best blues song, 2 x win for the Best International Blues Release by Blues 411, Honorable Mention for Blues (the only Canadian artist in 2015) for the International Song writing competition, hit #1 on Siriusuxm Radio on BB King’s Bluesville and has been played worldwide on roots and blues radio stations, while some of her releases remaining on the roots music report charts for months. She is from Northern Ontario Canada and lives in a remote town on Hwy 11.
