Cris Cuddy

By Cris Cuddy

Canadian artist Cris Cuddy, whose song "Gone Again" was chosen by Claire Lynch for her 2017 Grammy nominated "North by South" CD, will perform in concert with Dean Batstone on May 20th at Batstone’s Northern Ramble in Renfrew, ON

His songs have been recorded by the Valley's Tracey Prescott, Juno Award Winners Prairie Oyster and Claire Lynch's IBMA guitar star sidekick, the amazing Jim Hurst, among others.      

Cris Cuddy has also written several songs with Tom "The Old Coot" McCreight, leader of Silverbirch Bluegrass Band, who is well known to all at the Valley Bluegrass Festival.  Their song "Sally's Waltz" was recorded by East Coast IBMA stars The Spinney Bros.  Cris' version features the great fiddle and mandolin of world renowned Emory Lester.

Cris is also the leader of popular roots rock band Max Mouse and the Gorillas which featured Eganville's Wayne Lemke on guitar when they headlined the 2016 Killaloe Craft Fair.

Cris’ show at the Old Church Theatre, Trenton, ON on April 8, was a huge success.  His full tour schedule and details is available at  facebook slash criscmusic

Please contact me if you wish to arrange an interview with Cris.

Thanks and Best Wishes,
Vanishing Castle Recordings

ps: There is a new project, Jerry Lee and Elvis, which has 12 new songs including co-writes with Prairie Oyster's Russell deCarle (In Mexican Town), Calgary's Neil MacGonigill (artist manager and impressario, formerly of Jann Arden) "No Stars in Nashville Tonight" and Tom McCreight, ("An Old Man with the Blues").

For this recording, Cris returned to Nashville to work with his pals George "Tonechap" Bradfute (Paul Burch, Webb Wilder..) and the great Fats Kaplin (Tom Russell, Jack White..), the results are exciting.

Please contact me for the link to the Airplay Direct page where you can hear the songs, a link to an enjoyable video of the title song and a review in No Depression Magazine.

I would be happy to hear from you about "Jerry Lee and Elvis".
