Record Store Day Canada has officially announced that the 2014 Record Store Day Spokesband is Canada's favourite musical sons, Blue Rodeo. Since bursting onto the Toronto club scene in the mid-80’s, Blue Rodeo have been on a remarkable career path that has led to over 4 million records sold, multiple JUNO Awards, world-wide tours, an induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and a Star on the Walk of Fame.
"Record stores are so much more than just merchandise sellers", says Blue Rodeo's Jim Cuddy, "They are a social service - like minded people sharing their love and knowlege of music".
Record Store Day takes place annually on the third Saturday of April, and falls on April 19, 2014 this year. More information is soon to come, including details on artist in-store appearances at participating indie record stores. Stay tuned!
