Wilde World: Detours

Kim Wilde’s first records were written and produced by her father and brother, Marty and Ricky. The three of them have had a great influence on the music world, as this regular series ‘Wilde World’ shows.

The Detours are an acoustic rock pop act from Saddleworth, Manchester (UK). Ez Jon Erikson formed the band as an acoustic trio in 2001 with his brother Sam Johnson and their friend Julian Flindle, writing, recording and performing their own material, drawing on all of their rock, pop, folk, country, soul, gospel and even brass band influences. All of their releases are available to purchase digitally on many digital music providers including iTunes.
They have recorded four albums together, ‘Debut’, ‘No Evil’, ‘A Dark Storm’ and ‘Sense Of Purpose’. Their 19 track compilation ‘Collection’, released in 2010, featured a new recording: a cover of the song ‘Jesamine’, written by Marty Wilde and Ronnie Scott for the Casuals.
