Jon Sunde Goes It Alone

Thom Fountain

For years, The Daredevil Christopher Wright was one of Eau Claire’s most beloved bands –  both within and outside our boundaries. Though the group has all but disbanded, frontman Jon Sunde is embarking on his own, recently announcing his debut full-length record under the moniker J.E. Sunde. Shapes That Kiss The Lips Of God will be out June 3 on Iowa label Cartouche Records. Sunde recorded Shapes in Neenah, Wis., taking most of the parts himself, but also enlisting the help of former Eau Clairian Shane Leonard (Kalispell, Field Report). Sunde has been playing a number of shows around the region in anticipation of the album, so keep an eye on JESunde.com to see if he’s swinging back to Eau Claire anytime soon.
