Following in the tracks of Gram Parsons, Merle Haggard and George Strait, Caleb Caudle makes pure country music rooted in the genre's glory days, back when melody, mood and message ruled the roost. It's not contemporary country-pop, nor is it part of any underground outlaw scene. Instead, Caudle's music finds the middle ground between the classic twang of late-Seventies/early-Eighties country and the dusty stomp of modern-day Americana.
Raised just south of the Virginia/North Carolina border, Caudle cut his teeth on the road, building his audience one mile at a time while sharing the stage with the likes of Jason Isbell, Dawes, Robert Ellis, Patterson Hood, Justin Townes Earle, Aaron Lee Tasjan, and John Moreland, among many others.
His last album, 2014's Paint Another Layer on My Heart, drew critical praise from far and wide and landed Caudle on more than 40 year-end best-of lists. For his new album, Carolina Ghost, Caudle returned home to his native Piedmont North Carolina. "This record is all about making life changes," says Caudle, who co-produced Carolina Ghost with longtime collaborator Jon Ashley (Avett Brothers, Dawes, Band of Horses). "I kicked booze about a year and a half ago and moved back to North Carolina and fell in love. So it all feels like a new start, really."
Recorded at the Fidelitorium in Kernersville, NC, Carolina Ghost mixes Caudle's voice with the swoon of pedal steel, the swell of B3 organ, and layers of electric guitar. The light, layered arrangements swirl up memories of Haggard classics like Big City and Going Where the Lonely Go — but the end result is pure Caudle, shot through the optimism of guy, nearly a decade into his career, that’s discovered not only the thrill in hitting the highway, but the comfort in putting down some roots.
Roseland is an Americana Rock band comprised of members of Greensboro, North Carolina music veterans House of Fools and Hot Politics. Paying homage to classic rock and country artists like CSNY, Gram Parsons and Tom Petty as well as alternative staples such as The Jayhawks and Teenage Fanclub, Roseland's self-titled debut offers 13 songs in which clever hooks and rich melodies are married to memorable guitar lines and rhythms. Joined on the record by Whit Wright (American Aquarium) on Pedal Steel, the band presents a compelling first album that is sure to turn heads and stick with music lovers far and wide.
The members of Roseland are no strangers to the trials, tribulations and fruits of labor found in a life on the road. Having toured for years nationally in previous projects with several stops at SXSW, CMJ and Bamboozle festivals, Roseland has picked up the banner of its predecessors and is establishing a touring regimen in the southeast with dates booked throughout the end of the year.
