Friday To-Do: Cody Canada & The Departed

After the amicable breakup of Cross Canadian Ragweed back in 2010, singer and guitarist Cody Canada got together with the band’s bassist Jeremy Plato, guitarist Seth James, drummer Dave Bowen and pianist Steve Littleton, who make up his band The Departed.

While Ragweed fans were probably bummed about the band’s breakup (drummer Randy Ragsdale wanted to spend more time with his family) Canada has made it apparent that there were no hard feelings. And his tour schedule has made it obvious that he’s still intent on burning up millions of miles of asphalt playing raucous Red Dirt rock ’n’ roll in bars across this great land.

But some things have changed, as he told The Quad City Times last year. “We thought, ‘We’re not running from the past, we’re just looking toward the future,’ ” he said. “We’re still going to honor a few songs (from Ragweed), but we’re going to do mainly new stuff to let everybody know we’re still writing, we’re still creating.”
