Forget about the obvious Bob Dylan reference in the title of the album. Sun Wizard may have a little of Dylan’s rock/folk charm but similarities end there. Upbeat happy folk/rock with pop-like hooks, Sun Wizard brings an almost west coast easy going vibe to this prairie tinged album. Think sunny warm days spent in a car driving from Alberta to B.C. Perfect for crossing mountain passages. Guitar oriented with Zeppelin inspired timing. Great variation on the album from sunny pop driven folk tracks such as Too much on your mind to harder rock oriented guitar licks such as on Sick of Waiting.
