OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 5, 2007) - Blue Rodeo has an enduring history that has seen them become one of Canada's most influential bands. Recording best selling albums and touring the globe for over twenty years, Blue Rodeo has a new album, Small Miracles and a new tour - across Canada in January & February 2008.

Formed in 1984 by longtime friends and songwriting collaborators Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor, the group's first album, 1987's Outskirts, established them as hit makers with the omnipresent single "Try." Over the next two decades the band's studio albums have sold over 4 million copies and they have won a wealth of awards (including 4 Juno awards as Best Group) and earned critical acclaim. Now the band is doing what they do best, hitting the road.

Recorded throughout the Spring of 2007, Small Miracles was produced by Blue Rodeo and Chris Shreenan-Dyck. The album's first single is the rollicking "C'mon", for which a video has been shot and directed by longtime collaborator Chris Mills (Modest Mouse, The Tragically Hip, Broken Social Scene). Inspired by "Paddle To The Sea," the video chronicles the journey of a song from its creation to recording to the public and, ultimately, to the concert stage.

Don't miss Blue Rodeo live on Feb. 14 at the Scotiabank Place Theatre
