SOUTHERN ROCK GETS A NEW FACE IN CANADA

Thanks to bands like Kings of Leon, southern rock is now a top music genre on Billboard Charts.

Chris Caddell, one of the most famous guitarists in Canada, looks to lead Canadian music in this new trend, with his debut album “Chris Caddell and The Wreckage.”

“‘Chris Caddell and the Wreckage’ is the best new CD I've heard in a while,” said Sass Jordan, judge for Canadian Idol, “Check it out …he kicks arse.”

“Chris Caddell and The Wreckage” is a southern rock album with all the makings of a classic. Produced by Casey Marshall (EMI publishing), the album features co-writing credits and back-up vocals by Canadian rocker, Ian Thornley. Highlights include the catchy rocker “Through My Hands (Electric),” the blue-collar anthem “Workin,” and “People Get Ready,” an insightful and soulful cover of the Curtis Mayfield classic.

Since arriving in Toronto in 2002, Caddell has become one of the most sought after musicians in Canada. He has shared the recording studio and stage with Sass Jordan, Colin James, Hawksley Workman, Amanda Marshall, Fefe Dobson, Melissa O’Neill, Rex Goudie, Tara Sloane, Susie McNeil, Thornley and the late Jeff Healey.

“Chris is fully happening in a big way at all times,” said Al Webster, long-time drummer for The Jeff Healy Band. “A true professional hired by experts.”

The album-release party for “Chris Caddell and The Wreckage” is Friday, December 11 at 9:30 p.m., at The Orbit Room, 580A College Street in Toronto. Tracks off of “Chris Caddell and The Wreckage” can be found at www.myspace.com/chriscaddell. Caddell’s debut album will be available for purchase at the album-release party, and online by Christmas.

Bio

In a world of paparazzi-star turned singer, tabloid-inspired lyrics and exhausted auto-tune, it can be hard to spot natural talent in the music biz.

But Chris Caddell is the real deal.

Have a pint and listen to Chris Caddell play guitar, and you will be reminded of the craftsmanship and artful talent that used to characterize the music industry. Caddell takes his audience back to a time when guitarists were superheroes – a time when Jimi Hendrix electrified anthems and Eric Clapton sang about heaven like it was a place he’d been.

Chis Caddell is a guitarist of rare breed. You know its Caddell on the tune, not only because of his signature raspy voice but because he makes the guitar sing too. He is an animated player and one who plays his stringed songbird (always a Fender) as if it were an extension of his arm. But Caddell’s guitar definitely has a life of it’s own.

Since arriving in Toronto in 2002, Caddell has become one of the most sought-after musicians in Canada. He has shared the recording studio and stage with Sass Jordan, Colin James, Hawksley Workman, Amanda Marshall, Fefe Dobson, Melissa O’Neill, Rex Goudie, Tara Sloane, Susie McNeil, Thornley and the late Jeff Healey.

Caddell’s debut album, “Chris Caddell and The Wreckage” is a southern rock album with all the makings of a classic. Produced by Casey Marshall (EMI Publishing), the album features co-writing credits and back-up vocals by Canadian rocker, Ian Thornley. Highlights off the album include the unbelievably catchy “Through My Hands (Electric),” the blue-collar anthem “Workin,” and “People Get Ready,” an insightful and soulful cover of the Curtis Mayfield classic.

Caddell has long been inspired by the likes of Jimmi Hendrix and is always the first to list off his music inspirations - rock gods such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, B.B. King, Colin James and Doyle Bramhall II are frequently covered by Caddell. But fans of Chris know it won’t be long before he’s hailed in the same light.

These days true talent might seem like a myth in the music biz, but when Chris Caddell makes rock, he makes you a believer.
