From thought provoking pieces such as “DON”T SIT AROUND WAITING” Sunday pleads to us, to get up and make things happen for ourselves. In the track “I GUESS I DIDN”T HEAR YOU RIGHT”, she revisits the 50’s era sound with a soulful piece about lost love. If you’ve ever lost love and who hasn't, this will definitely take you to that place in your heart. With the doomer bluesy piece called “TROUBLE COMING AT ME FROM BEHIND”, she reminds us of our own distressful times and that like herself we are not alone in that. “Johnson Avenue Scat”, co-written with Wolfe Wall, Sunday demonstrates her scatting with Wolfe's flute playing while bringing some levity to the listener. As well, the final track on the album, “PARABOLA” is composed and performed by Lucas Paulson, Sunday’s son.
