Presented by: Shenkman Arts Centre Presents
Saturday, April 9, 2016 at 8 pm
Devin Cuddy’s unique musical style combines New Orleans blues, country and an element of Canadiana creating a sound so eloquent, that it leaves one wondering why no one has done this before. His new take on the genre is pushing the limits of what people think they want to dance to on a Saturday night.
As the son of one of Canada’s most beloved singer/songwriters, Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy, country rock has been the soundtrack to Devin’s entire life. Devin noted in the Winnipeg Free Press
that “my passion for music grew out of being surrounded by it for so long,” noting he and his siblings developed their musical tastes by picking through their dad’s vast collection of CDs.” No one can accuse Cuddy of not paying his dues over the past several years, and while his father has taken great pride in Devin’s accomplishments, he has also shown tremendous respect in keeping a safe distance away.
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.
Devin burst onto the Queen Street music scene in 2010, taking up a residency at the Cameron House on Wednesday nights where he work-shopped the songs that were eventually recorded on his recently released his debut album, Volume One
, on Cameron House Records. The album includes a stellar cast of musicians, namely, Nichol Robertson (guitar), Devon Richardson (bass), and Zach Sutton (drums). The album received a Juno Nomination for Roots / Traditional Album of the Year. By the time this performance rolls around, he will have recorded his second album, Kitchen Knife
. Opening Act: John Carroll
Ottawa’s own John Carroll will open the show. John’s built himself a reputation for his witty banter, sly observations and impressive guitar style through his weekly appearances at The Chateau Lafayette and around the region.Ages:
