The New Album is Out!
After a ring-dinger of an Edmonton release show on October 6th, The Earth That You're Made Of  hit #6 on the Earshot national folk/roots/blues chart, and #3 on the CKUA chart.

Here's a sample of the praise it's received so far:

"Crystal clear voice, skilfully constructed songs and formidable piano, guitar, and arrangement chops…it's the songs that make this album a winner." – Penguin Eggs Magazine 

"Her voice has an arresting purity that slides between strength and vulnerability…she plays acoustic and electric guitars, piano and keyboards and even penned horn or string arrangements for half the tracks on her latest album…even with all those extras Wylie’s voice and songwriting remain the highlight of the set." – Roger Levesque, Edmonton Journal 

"Subtle and lulling, her voice is the sound you’d hear in a forest haunted by benevolent ghosts." – Michael Dunn, BeatRoute Magazine

“…one of the finest contemporary roots recordings to have ever been produced in Alberta, period.” – Peter North, Artistic Director, Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival 

"I think that Wylie is a rare contemporary musician who has refreshed and strengthened this good old genre…while staying true to its essence. It’s stardust folk." Hande Eagle, UK-based arts writer and translator
