EP 284 | Devin Cuddy & New Album ‘Dear Jane’


Mulligan Stew Podcast  Guest is Devin Cuddy. (Devin Cuddy band)

Son of Jim Cuddy and very definitely his own man.

Jim has said, on this very podcast, that he offered to school Devin and son Sam on the fine art of songwriting and playing but the guys went their separate ways.

Now, Jim says he’s very impressed with their growth and creativity.

They’ve been singing together some for years but just casually at fundraising events. Devin talks about a maritime tour they just did.

Devin has released his first new music in 5 years. The album is called Dear Jane – with a reference to Hotlips Houlihan on the Mash TV series.

The album is a soulful mix of New Orleans, honky tonk, roots and Randy Newman. Devin’s originals are storytelling taken to another level. He’s become his own storyteller.

Devin is creating his place in Canada’s music world, just like his Father.

One of the great surprises is Devin’s cover of Barney Bentall’s hit Come Back to Me. Barney sings on the track. Barney, Jim and Devin have been friends a long time.

Devin says he’s been waiting to sing these songs for 5 years. Should be a great 2024 for The Devin Cuddy Band.

Tracks included in the podcast.

North of Tofino off the coast of Vancouver Island lies a sensational old growth destination.

Clayoquot Wilderness Resort.

At its basic it’s like camping in Central Park under high tents except the rooms and food and service comes from The Plaza Hotel.

Because the managing Director is John Caton and because he was the original manager of Blue Rodeo it’s not surprising to find Jim Cuddy, his son Devin and Ed Robertson from Barenaked Ladies all sharing the stage outside the main resort.

Wines supplied by Dave Mathews who’s on tour and unavailable.

I loved talking to both Cuddys together. It was great fun.

Ed Robertson from BNL brought humour and insight to our talk.

Devin has a great second album Kitchen Knife ready for release.

Jim’s coming to Edmonton folk fest with Blue Rodeo.

They’ll play  all of 5 days in July.

Hope u like it.
