Cody Canada and the Departed

Booking agency Red 11 Music has signed on to represent Cody Canada and The Departed out of its Nashville office.

“My team and I are excited to say the least,” says Jon Folk, founder of Red 11 Music. “I’ve known Cody and the guys for years, and when asked if I wanted to become part of their team, I jumped at the chance. Their live show is captivating, their music is original and their fans are dedicated to the band. If someone were to ask me, ‘What do you look for in a band to work with?,’ this would be it! With a new album coming out this fall, we are looking forward to a record year in 2015.”

The band is currently on tour with Reckless Kelly and Micky & the Motorcars.
