Former Cross Canadian Ragweed frontman Cody Canada to perform with new band


Ada —

About two months after Ragweed split, The Departed had its first show.


AN: What, if any, are some of the significant differences between The Departed and your former band?

CC: The big, significant difference is Seth James on guitar and vocals and Steve Littleton on B3 organ. That’s really what makes it different because I’m not the one singing all the time, so it adds something different.


AN: Are you finding that a lot of the people who were fans of your old band have come along for the ride with the new band, or are you attracting a new fan base?

CC: We get a lot of the old fan base, but there is definitely a new surge of fans that we didn’t have before.


AN: To what do you attribute that?

CC:  The old band was together for 16 years, so there’s going to be people that followed it. They liked what we did in the first band, so they like what we do in the second band.
