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.

Jim Cuddy – All In Time

jim cuddy allThe Taranna Was Hot Series: Part 16/25

Found this 1998 debut solo release for $2.99 at Sonic Boom. You’ll know Blue Rodeo’s mid-tempo and ballad country and rock tracks that sound like only they can, and that’s basically what we have here. Cuddy’s distinctive vocals carry so well over these tunes, and the playing is stellar. I loved every track.

Guests: Blue Rodeo’s Bazil Donovan and Colin Cripps, Wilco’s Jay Bennett and Jeff Tweedy, Michelle McAdorey, Sarah Harmer, Melanie Doane, Gavin Brown, John Whynot, and Andy Maize.
