This week we are crushing on Canadian Alt-Rocker JJ Wilde. One of Canada’s most promising musical exports, JJ Wilde, sings from down deep, telling her soulful stories in a voice that embraces the legacy of Rock n Roll, and brings it into the 21st century.
In her new EP, “Wilde” reflects upon the running theme between the songs, freedom. The focus single “Off the Rails'' is about chasing the highs as they come, and appreciating the present. Throughout this EP JJ Wilde is creating a feel-good and interesting soundscape as each song passes, making space for the sunshine hidden within her own signature Rock’n’Roll sound. Wilde also reminds us that there are brighter days ahead, and allows listeners to reminisce on good times through her soulful vocals.
Called "a voice that commands the stage .... an undeniable rock star in the making," by BBC Radio 1's Jack Saunders, Kitchener-based JJ Wilde, is the breakthrough new voice of a movement of independent female artists who have characterized Rock n Roll music over the past decade. She has been recognized internationally, performing and recording with artists including The Glorious Sons, Jimmy Eat World, Incubus, The Struts, and Reignwolf.
