“The two things th
at drive me are love and hate”
– Cody Canada\, Ma rch 2014
The latest\, tight incarnation of the Co dy Canada-led group The Departed isn’t a reinvention of the group’s sound\ , or a reimagining of Canada’s musical perspective – it’s a reunion. As wi th any reunion\, the passing years have provided the involved parties with new and unique perspectives\, breathing vibrant excitement into their str eamlined new environment.
Canada\, Jeremy Plato\, Chris Doege and Steve Littleton are reopening the doors to a sonic garage where sounds and stories some thought were gone for good are now being un leashed onto an eager public after a few years of fruitful – even risky – artistic diversion. Being guided by raw emotion and nerves that are often unguarded\, Canada hasn’t begun to pluck the opening notes to an increasin g number of Cross Canadian Ragweed favorites without some reluctance or pa inful reminiscence\, mind you. But the powerful nature of such visceral co nnections is what makes his stories stunning while rightfully placing him in a prominent class of modern songwriters occupied by the influential lik es of Robert Earl Keen\, Bruce and Charlie Robison\, Todd Snider\, Mike Mc Clure and the men of Reckless Kelly\, among only a strict few others.
