For well over a decade Cody Canada fronted the biggest band the Red Dirt scene has ever seen in Cross Canadian Ragweed. When they disbanded he and Jeremy Plato started a brand new band. Five years and three albums later, The Departed are goin' strong, making good music and doing what they love most.
Last week (1/13) HippieLovePunk from Cody Canada and the Departed hit stores and iTunes, the band's third album (This is Indian Land, Adventus). Canada called in to talk with us about the new album, MusicFest 2015 highlights, his brother-in-law Wade Bowen's performance on Conan, American Aquarium and so much more.
I've known Cody Canada, in a professional capacity, for around three years. But I've been a fan of his for more than 10 years longer than that. I actually purchased Ragweed's Soul Gravy, in Baghdad, back in 2004.
His new, self-titled album was out last Tuesday. It peaked inside the Top 5 on iTunes, no small task for an independent artist. Last week Wade Bowen called into Radio Texas, LIVE! to debut four tracks off his new project, exclusively for our listeners.
From his home in New Braunfels, TX, Cody Canada and his dog, Marvin, took to social media, today, to thank fans for their continued support. He also says to keep comin' out to shows, and to expect a new Departed album very soon.
Today is the day! Today Coday Canada released his first solo acoustic recording titled 'Some Old, Some New, Maybe A Cover Or Two.' The 2-disc LP features a full, unedited 19-song set recorded live this summer at Third Coast Music in Port Aransas, TX.
Two weeks ago Wade Bowen hosted his 15th annual “Wade Bowen Classic” and Music Festival. This year a portion of proceeds raised will go directly to the victims of the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas. And guess what? They raised a lot of proceeds!
The Departed is comprised of two former members of Cross Canadian Ragweed, Cody Canada and Jeremy Plato. They and long time friends Dave Bowen, Seth James, and Steve Littleton formed the new band soon after Ragweed called it quits in 2010. Canada and James recently stopped by the RTX studio where Canada explained the inadvertently often controversial "Adventus" album cover, and James offered up the story behind "Prayer for the Lonely." Both answered "Five Questions," check it out.
