JUNO-Winning Badass JJ Wilde Joining The Record Company On Tour This Fall

JUNO-Winning Badass JJ Wilde Joining The Record Company On Tour This Fall

Debut Album ‘Ruthless’ Won ‘Rock Album Of The Year’ At This Years JUNO Awards

Record-Setting Trailblazer Just Dropped Her EP ‘Wilde’

JJ Wilde has had a dynamite year! She was the first woman in 25 years to win Rock Album of the Year at this years JUNO Awards for her debut album ‘Ruthless’ (Last female winner was Alanis Morissette for ‘Jagged Little Pill’ in 1996), her debut single “The Rush” won the SOCAN Rock Music Award and was featured on the hit TV show The Good Doctor. She also made headlines when she performed “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” as a tribute to Eddie Schwartz and won the 2021 Jim Beam INDIES Award for Rock Artist Of The Year. Now she is hitting the road this fall opening for The Record Company on their US tour, stopping at top market spots such as Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, and more.

JJ recently released her EP WILDE, which Atwood Magazine called "a hearty dose of dynamic, feverish, and unapologetic rock” and stated it “...burns with raw passion as the artist lights her own inner fire of empowerment, escape, and resilience." Hit tracks “Best Boy” and “Mercy” can both be found on WILDE in addition to her focus single “Off The Rails” and her infallible cover of the Stevie Nicks/Tom Petty classic “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” with The Glorious Sons’ Brett Emmons lending his vocal stylings on the duet.

Ever the trailblazer, Wilde made history in 2020 as the first female artist to simultaneously hit #1 on all three Canadian rock charts with her debut single “The Rush,” holding the slot for a whopping 19 weeks. Never one to rest on her laurels, Wilde quickly followed with two more back-to-back #1’s: “Best Boy,” the IDGAF ode to altering the societal narrative for how women should behave, and her most recent hit “Mercy,” a tour de force of modern rock in the form of a tale of revenge.

Wilde’s debut album RUTHLESS, which garnered praise from American Songwriter (“profoundly moving”), Ones to Watch (“soul-stirring”), Alternative Press (“for fans of [The] Struts, Amy Winehouse and YONAKA … kicking ass and taking names”), Atwood (“Fiercely unapologetic”), and Earmilk (“undeniable grit”). She was also added to the lineup at the 2022 Download Festival, the UK’s premier rock festival and is set for a full band global stream performance for Jim Beam Bourbon’s “Live from Inside” from The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto on June 12th and 13th.
