Cale Tyson returns to Europe in May 201715-11-2017
A twentysomething Texan with movie-star looks, Cale Tyson made a splash in Americana circles with a debut steeped in sad, old-time flavours; he can even yodel convincingly, always a useful skill in a singing cowboy. The follow up album Careless Soul steps sideways into country soul.
The history of country music, of all music really, has been written and sung by the outlaws, by the outsiders, the misfts and the renegades. Whether it was Waylon and Willie, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson or Kitty Wells and Jimmie Rodgers, country music has always been pushed forward by somebody trying to get back to something and getting lost along the way.
In the last few years a second wave of new traditionalists has started crawling out of the honky tonks to fight back against twangless pop country and the backwards baseball cap wearing beery chauvinism of bro country; revisiting and reworking the classic sound of honky tonk and traditional country and Cale Tyson is their young prince. Careless Soul is undoubtedly going to be one of the most talked about records released in what already looks like a vintage year for country music.
We're happy to welcome Cale Tyson and his band back to mainland Europe for a full tour, first dates announced now!
