Album Notes

Toronto-based Cris Cuddy is the leader of popular Canadian indie roots-rockers Max Mouse and the Gorillas, whose ranks have included such stellar musicians as Dennis Delorme (Prairie Oyster), Roly Platt (Ronnie Hawkins), Tony Quarrington (Joe Hall, Brian Gladstone) and Hugh MacMillan (Spirit of the West).

His first solo project is "Come Along Carmelita", which features multi-instrumentalist Fats Kaplin (ex-Tom Russell) and members of Mary Margaret O'Hara and Big Sugar.

Cuddy's mentor, songwriting great Mickey Newbury, chose the album's title song for inclusion as a segue on his masterful "Long Road Home".

Scheduled for release in September 2003 is "Keep the Change", produced by guitarist Andrew Hardin (Tom Russell), which also features Fats Kaplin, legendary guitarist Albert Lee, and the great Gene Taylor (Fabulous Thunderbirds) on piano along with Keith Glass and Joan Besen (Prairie Oyster) and Kevin Breit (Cassandra Wilson, Norah Jones).

In addition to his own critically-acclaimed projects, Cuddy has contributed songs to albums by fellow Canadians Prairie Oyster and Tracy Prescott-Brown.

Coincidentally the folk collector's LP "Jeremy Dormouse" featuring Cuddy has just been re-released by Void/Hallucination USA.

Cuddy has worked in Nashville with legendary producer Brian Ahern (Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash) and also collaborated with "Memphis" George Bradfute (Paul Burch, Phil Lee, Webb Wilder) on the CD "Nowhere Town", due to be released January 2004.

Craig's Music Club

Cris Cuddy can do it all. Come Along Carmelita has songs in genres from cajun zydeco and country (classic and modern) to jazz and medieval folk and covers subjects as diverse as "The Checkout Girl" and "Henry Morgan the Pirate". But the most important aspect of this album is that Cris sounds like he is having as much fun making the music as I am listening to it.
