Erika Kulnys released WINGS Friday March 28th at Saint George’s Round Church WINGS was recorded by local Air Traffic Control frontman, Kirk Comstock in Lunenburg (one of the upbeat local-flavour tracks is “Lunenburg County”). WINGS has a folk-pop-country sound, with Asa Brosius’ mellifluous pedal steel guitar pervading the album like a warm sunrise. Scott Macmillan and Liam Frier’s electric guitars bring the album out of the folk world-pushing the boundaries of blues, rock, and bluegrass, as Kulnys’ harmonies add rich textures throughout the album. Jordi Comstock’s solid drumming and Pam Mason’s bass give it great rhythm and drive that will make you want to get up and dance, and Rose Vaughan’s harmonies create ethereal moments as Kulnys’ songs visit her mother’s recent suicide, exploring healing, transformation, and love in its essence. An advocate of mental health and social change, Erika speaks to survivors and offers us music of the vulnerable, open heart.
