Winona Wilde Album Release – EARLY SHOW
November 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Live in the WISE Lounge presents Winona Wilde.
On her third album, Wasted Time, the much-travelled Canadian singer/songwriter continues to redefine the image of the troubadour, documenting her life and observing the world with both biting wit and heartbreaking honesty. It’s an approach that echoes some of country music’s greatest composers, such as Townes Van Zandt and Billy Joe Shaver, so it’s no surprise that she was named a winner of the 2017 Kerrville (Texas) Folk Festival’s New Folk competition.
“Winona Wilde is champion of the underdog, a blue collar heroine. Demigod of the downtrodden, she calls us all in, together, and using the precision of her well honed voice and her captivating charm, she opens us up and shows us what we’re made of. Messy and sparkling we get to leave the theatre together, intact, illuminated and staring our humanity in the face. ”
-Verses Festival of Words (Vancouver, BC)
“Winona Wilde don’t mind looking truth in the eye, she stares it down and then paints it out loud with the sweetness and depth of a deep brown sugar.”
