LISTEN TO THE ALBUM KITCHEN KNIFE HERE
Making their way across Canada for a second time supporting their latest album, Kitchen Knife, The Devin Cuddy band is all set to make stops from Vancouver to Halifax beginning on October 3. “It’s very important to us to bring this show to the doorsteps of Canadians everywhere”, says Devin Cuddy. “So come on out”. To catch a glimpse of what to expect from the blues and country four piece, you can watch their performance of album cut “Home”, recorded live with the students at The Regent Park School Of Music.
Devin Cuddy has always made music his way, and some might argue, the hard way. As the son of Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy, country rock has been the soundtrack to Devin’s entire life — he was born the same week Blue Rodeo began recording its 1987 debut album, Outskirts. But from the moment Devin was drawn to playing music, he was determined to get as close as possible to the sources of all the sounds he loved, whether they were made by rock and roll’s founding fathers, the Grand Ole Opry’s honky-tonk heroes, or Jelly Roll Morton and the kings of jazz. Thus far, that path has already led to a Juno Nomination for Roots / Traditional Album of the Year for his first record, Vol 1.
Produced by Greg Keelor (Blue Rodeo) at his Lost Cause home studio, with the help of Nichol Robertson on guitar,Zack Sutton on drums, and Devon Richardson on bass, The Devin Cuddy Band went in to studio with a different approach than before. “I brought all the new tunes to the studio, so the band hadn’t played most of them yet,” says Cuddy. “Each song was arranged as we heard it, very natural approach. We took more of a studio approach as opposed to the ‘live off the floor’ feel we have on the first record. You’ll hear more instruments, bigger sounds and a more realised sense of song.”
