Fronted by singer/electric washboard player Lori Paradis, Canadian band Sulfur City comes roaring out of your speakers with echoes of Grace Slick, Patti Smith and Janis Joplin. This is no wimpy chick rock! Sulfur City is the first female-fronted band on Alive, and their balls-to-thewall, high-energy gritty blues style fits right in with label mates like the Black Keys and Left Lane Cruiser.
Paradis was raised in a small mining village in Northeastern Ontario, and her lyrics reflect her life experience, which has included jobs on the rougher side of blue collar life such as a truck driver on a construction crew, a bartender and a house painter, to name a few. The singer channels this into her onstage presence, and as a result she manages to tap into aggressive, bluesy vocals that are ideally suited for her talented band. – GLIDE MAGAZINE
Sulfur City is a really honest to goodness working class rock band, the kind you can unwind to with beers and pool games at the local pub. Paradis even possesses the requisite career history as she’s been a construction worker, house painter and trucker. Those are careers that make you tough and give you the right rock ‘n’ roll mindset. – POPMATTERS
