Caleb Caudle’s last album, Tobacco Town brought him national exposure upon its release in 2012. With Blurt Magazine noting “…jaw-droppingly fine songs steeped in classic Earle, Clark, McMurtry and Van Zandt,” Caudle decided to take his Americana-rich songs out on the road.
In just a year, Caudle has played over 300 shows in 30 plus states, performed on the web-radio sensation Daytrotter, and even found time to pack up all of his belongings to make the move from North Carolina to New Orleans.
For the new album, which was all written during his time on the road, Caudle decided to record at Echo Mountain studios in Asheville, NC. Along with his producer and engineer, Jon Ashley (Dawes, Band Of Horses, The Avett Brothers), Caleb manages to craft a beautiful composition of his road-worn songs with some help from Lydia Loveless (harmony vocals), Whit Wright (pedal steel), Jordan Powers (bass), Greg Herndon (piano), Tommy Scifres (guitar), and Jack Foster (drums).
Paint Another Layer On My Heart is a fully realized vision consisting of classic songs, instrumentation, and production.
“I just want to connect with folks,” says Caudle. “This album is about love and distance. That’s something I feel like most people have had to go through, something that was very much a part of my life this past year.”
