Sulfur City

Sulfur City

 Greater Sudbury, Ontario, CAN

Four unlikley souls from the north.


One stage... four bodies...duct tape and long black gloves...grungy Mississippi Delta grooves....electric rhythms pulsating across the floor...Sulfur City has all the dirt slinging raw vibes a body needs and then some. It’s a fuel that burns full throttle ignited by the heat of Lori's soulful voice and the power and passion of her performance. Sulfur City is calling out to your nerve endings and wants to shock your senses so unplug your ear holes tie up your boots and let the stomping begin.

" of the most unique, powerful stage performances we have ever seen! You will never forget this band with vocalist Lori Paradis and her electric washboard!" Mellaney Dahl and Terry Callaghan, Q92 FM

“Lori, your booming voice draws from an overt Blues sound but also has very Gospel pangs. To me you are the Canadian Janis Joplin! ” Constance Adams , OAC Orange Country Reverb

"Harshly beautiful music…with slide guitars, washboard, and Lori's booming voice, you'll feel like you're standing in a bar in the heart the Mississippi Delta." Jason Turnbull, CBC Radio One

“…raw soulful sound, their vibe is infectious.” Artistic Director, Summerfest

“Lori sings like Bessie Smith and Odetta all rolled up into a tiny little frame.” Artistic Director Northern Lights Festival

“…a distinctive modern blues sound.” Doc MacLean
