Megan Gnad speaks to one of country music’s rising stars about the making of his debut album A growing UK fanbase has fostered the beginnings of a burgeoning career path for Cale Tyson, as interest soars in his unique retro, country sound. The Texan-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter releases his debut album, CARELESS SOUL, to British audiences on April 8, which follows his 2015 EP, INTRODUCING CALE TYSON.
Recorded in Muscle Shoals, at the legendary Fame Studios, the full-length album continues to explore his traditional style, with whiskey-soaked vocals, lyrics that pull on the heart strings and instrumentation that draws on another era.
But fans will notice that this release is bigger, incorporating string and horn arrangements, meatier tracks and deeper writing, which comes from time spent carefully developing and honing his style over the past few years.
He has also taken a step up by putting together a band of Nashville’s finest musicians, including Jeremy Fetzer (lead guitar), Pete Lindberg (rhythm guitar), Brett Resnick (pedal steel), Skylar Wilson (keys), Dave Hood (bass), Jon Radford (drums), with composition by Jordan Lehning, and production from Michael Rinne, who currently plays bass with Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell.
