Jim Cuddy – Skyscraper Soul

The Taranna Was Hot Series: Part 17/25

Snagged this 2011 release at Sonic Boom ($2.99). Like my review of All In Time, this one sounds like Blue Rodeo, and that’s a beautiful thing. Cuddy’s voice has a real ache to it, and it soars unlike any other. One Amazon reviewer nailed it: “Jim’s singing is only paralleled by his instrumental abilities, which are only outdone by his song writing.” Truly wonderful stuff.

Band/Guests Include: Bazil Donovan, Colin Cripps, Melissa McLelland, Devin Cuddy, and the CBC’s Anne Lindsay.

  1. Is this part of the challenge? You should mention that part so I know what to link to tonight!

    I saw him on this tour and he was amazing. Only half full though. Which makes sense as he was playing a venue that normally the full Blue Rodeo band can fill.


  2. It does soar unlike any other – well said, in a non-loquacious amount of words too!


    • Thanks Geoff! I sure do like me some Blue Rodeo-and-related listening.

      As for this challenge, I really like it. I’ve tried brevity before and it’s always refreshing. I do think 200 words is too many though. I like the 80! 🙂
