All in time. Jim Cuddy.

In het Nederlands: beetje dylan, beetje bruce, beetje counting crowes. Lijkt dike americana maar staat toch onder pop-rock. Voor mij is het ook een beetje Kickin Country. Veel plezier voor de liefhebber. Het is goed.

It was the mid-seventies when Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor first met each other in high school. After discovering a mutual love of music, they formed an “amphetamine pop band” called the HiFi’s. The pair moved to New York City in 1981 and tried to land a recording contract.

Three years later they returned to Toronto without a deal but discovered a burgeoning club scene where acts like k.d. lang, The Cowboy Junkies and Jeff Healey were honing their chops. Through a series of chance meetings and the classified ads, Jim and Greg formed Blue Rodeo. Since the release of their debut album, Outskirts, in March 1987, Blue Rodeo have established themselves as one of the premiere bands in Canadian music history.
