WONDER 45 are a London-based soul ensemble, formed as an instrumental recording project by producer/writer Holley Gray. Collaborating with guitarist Ross Ewart, drummer Chris Nickolls and keys player Steve Pringle, Wonder 45 are committed to writing and recording authentic soul music from their suburban London base.
The band came into their own when they linked up with singer/songwriters Jess Greenfield and Gavin Conder, (who as The Kondoors, were described by Blues Matters’ as a “slick and stylish group oozing with class”) to add the top line vocal melodies that bring the songs to life.
Last year’s Wonder 45 track ‘Wonderland’, released on Germany’s Golden Rules label, won the band plenty of plaudits on the underground soul scene, with the band described as being ‘in the throngs of pursuing ecstatic musical heights’ by Blues & Soul Magazine.
They are back with a stream of new releases in the run up to their debut album "Wonderland" release in 2024 and we are delighted to be releasing these singles on vinyl at Big AC Records!
First up is this fantastic 45 featuring 'Cry' and a brilliant A side which is yet to be announced!
“Cry” is a gritty, soul ballad about putting all into a relationship, getting your heart broken but not being defeated and coming back stronger than ever. Recorded in an analogue studio to preserve the all-important warmth that is so needed for a track full of soul and emotion - let roaring horns, driving organ, crunchy drums and incredibly unapologetic vocals take you to emotional highs and lows in this future soul classic.
Available to preorder on 7" vinyl, ships around the end of Jan 2024 with the digital release of the A Side.
