Cuff The Duke
Cuff the Duke is a Canadian alt-country band from Oshawa, Ontario. They play a blend of traditional country and folk music with indie rock influences.
When Hamilton, Ontario roots rockers Harlan Pepper called it a day in late summer 2015,

But an artist’s journey invariably takes many unexpected twists and turns, and the band’s
front man Dan Edmonds’ journey ultimately launched him into unknown territory. The first
results of these explorations have arrived in the form of his debut solo album, Ladies On The

Dan has recently opened a new recording studio called Fort Rose, in his home town of Hamilton
and is currently working on a new record, as well as producing records for other artists like,
Blunt Chunks and Delta Days.
