Jim Cuddy has one of the most recognizable voices in Canadian music thanks to omnipresent hits such as “Try”, “5 Days In May” and “Bad Timing”. Between Blue Rodeo projects, Jim released his first solo album “All In Time” (1998) and hit the road with the eponymous Jim Cuddy Band. Since that first release he has recorded three more solo albums; “The Light That Guides You Home” (2006), “Skyscraper Soul” (2011) and “Constellation” (2018).
Jim’s latest release, “Countrywide Soul”, is a celebration of music and the musicians who join him on stage each night. To achieve his goal on “Countrywide Soul”, Jim re-worked a number of songs previously recorded for his solo career and with Blue Rodeo. To round out the record, he wrote two new songs and included a couple of favourite cover songs. Tracks include “Rhinestone Cowboy”, “Back Here Again”, “All In Time”, “Glorious Day”, “The Light That Guides You Home” and “Everybody Cries”.
As a group Blue Rodeo has sold over 5 million records world-wide, won countless JUNO Awards, been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, received a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame and Jim (along with songwriting partner Greg Keelor) was inducted as Officers of the Order of Canada.
