“10 New Country artists you need to know” (Rolling Stone)
I still don’t know how we did it, but we’ve managed to get highly acclaimed young American singer / songwriter Cale Tyson down to Portsmouth on his first ever UK tour! AND It’s one of our fabulous “House Concerts” which we hold in the upstairs room of the Square Tower – up close and personal, and totally acoustic just as the songs were written and meant to be heard.
This will be a great chance to catch Cale in our intimate, historic venue – this boy is going to be huge (check out the quotes)!!
Cale Tyson is a singer, songwriter and guitar player from Nashville, Tennessee. Born in a small town in Texas, he was raised in Fort Worth, the home of Townes Van Zandt and the place where he first heard the classic country sounds that have inspired and enriched his gentle, melancholy, and undeniably whiskey-soaked sound.
With a nostalgic heart and an ear for melodies from long ago, Tyson’s latest EP, High On Lonesome is a beautiful collection of songs that continue the legacy of some of the legendary songwriters whose music he first heard as a child – Gram Parsons, Guy Clark and Willie Nelson, to name but a few.
Recorded in Nashville, High On Lonesome features some of the town’s finest players including guitarist Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart), keys player Tyson Rogers (Don Williams), John McTigue (Brazilbilly) on drums and Mike Rinne (Caitlin Rose and Andrew Combs) on bass.
The end result is at once a loving tribute to the great country songwriters that have come before him and also a persuasive plea to those who might think that country music’s best days have been and gone.
As long as Cale Tyson has a say in it, the best days might yet be still to come.
What The Critics Are Saying…..
“Cale Tyson is, unashamedly, a throwback. A chugging hollow-body here, a whiskey soaked pedal-steel there, his first release – a 7-track mini album – sounds like something dug out of a vault from the 1970s deep south and cranked through an old transistor radio. If you hadn’t figured by now, it’s also deeply beautiful. “ (Spiral Earth)
“ ‘High On Lonesome’ will appeal to fans of Gram, Hank, Merle and many other country legends. But it is so much more than that. Cale Tyson has delivered a heart-breaking confession which suggest that a long career beckons…” (Songwriting Magazine)
“The old soul in a young body thing has been having a moment since Amy Winehouse walked among us, and now it seems to have spread seamlessly from soul to country. First came Canadian Daniel Romano and now the ranks are swelled by the 23-year-old Texan Cale Tyson, who seems to have inherited the increasingly rare talent to country yodel…” (Independent on Sunday)
