FITS AND STARTS: SELECTIONS is now available on iTunes and Kevin Cryderman is an independent songwriter-singer [sic] originally from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada who is now based in Atlanta, Georgia (USA). With lyrics that range from the simple to the cerebral, where the “I” is often a fictional persona, the main thread of his work is , , , and , hanging out in the ballpark’s parking lot of fellow Canadian acts such as Ron Sexsmith , Tegan and Sara, Feist, Barenaked Ladies, Jeremy Fisher, Great Lake Swimmers, Dan Mangan, Rufus Wainwright, Sarah Harmer, The Arcade Fire, Hayden, Neil Young, The Grapes Of Wrath, Emm Gryner, Alanis Morissette, Nelly Furtado, and The Tragically Hip. Cryderman’s oeuvre also includes many notable instances of genre-hopping, including trashy garage punk, Americana, wedding processional music, heavy metal, instrumental guitar music, new age, post-rock, bubblegum pop, drinking songs, cinematic underscoring, new wave, DJ, country, blues, modern rock, synth pop, gospel, radio jingles, reggae, easy listening, psychedelia, proto-grunge, grunge, post-grunge, post-post-grunge, and allegedly humorous bits of parody and satire that include moments which simultaneously revel in and ironize raunchy, sophomoric sensibilities.

    Brilliant songwriter! I bought Fits and Starts: Selections and love it: quite the impressive diversity of genres, all well done. Based on what I've heard thus far, the songs on Courting the Muse are even better, I can't wait for it to come out.
