About Caleb Caudle
Growing up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, singer-songwriter Caleb Caudle was raised on rock n' roll and Southern hospitality. Influenced by bands like The Clash and Velvet Underground, Caudle was playing North Carolina's punk rock circuit by the age of 15. Naturally, his music matured with his age and he became more lyrically driven, adopting a love for collecting vinyl. In 2012, he decided to quit his day job and focus solely on music -- five years and four albums later, Caudle is gaining the traction he deserves. He was recently dubbed "the musical equivalent of high-proof bourbon rich in flavor, with a subtle, satisfying bite," by Rolling Stone editors for their list of "10 New Country Artists You Need To Know." He's played Nashville's famed AmericanaFest multiple times and his song, "Borrowed Smiles," was featured on last season's dramatic season finale of CMT's Nashville. As 2018 approaches, Caleb's not slowing down; he's on the lineup for the 11th Annual Cayamo, the musical cruise that travels from New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico, and Belize, next to icons like John Prine, Buddy Miller, Brandi Carlile, Patty Griffin, and Lee Ann Womack. And most importantly, he's gearing up to release his eighth and most refined album yet, Crushed Coins.
Set for release on February 23, 2018, Crushed Coins is a dark and dreamy narrative about following the light at the end of the tunnel. "I think the overall theme of the record is trying to find hope in a dark place. It's about relying on the people and the things that you love," Caudle says, who was inspired by soul, blues, and jazz, specifically Miles Davis' In A Silent Way. However, producer Jon Ashley is well-versed in a multitude of genres, having produced records for bands like Band of Horses, Hiss Golden Messenger, The War on Drugs, and Dawes. While the two have worked together before, co-producing both Paint Another Layer On My Heart and Carolina Ghost, the duo wanted to take a different approach than ever before, bringing in a dozen extremely talented musicians, including Joshua Hedley, Erin Rae, noted electric guitarist Megan McCormick (Jenny Lewis, Michelle Black), pedal steel player Brett Resnick, and bassist Kevin Black (Margo Price, Sturgill Simpson).
