Almost Blue Promotions presents Cale Tyson at the Blue Lamp
Cale Tyson is a singer and songwriter from Nashville, TN. 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.
"Old school, sad-bastard outlaw country for a new generation of excited country fans" Rolling Stone
“A traditionalist for the future” The Guardian
“The twenty-five-year-old from Cleburne, Texas, isn’t the first skinny kid to wear a cowboy hat and a pearl-snap shirt in tribute to the giants of vintage country, but he is one of just a few whose lovesick blues actually sound like they come from the heart” Garden & Gun
“The music is fabulous, a kind of traditional country with a 21st century twist…just wonderful” Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
“A mix of Hank Williams heartache and effortless Gram Parsons cool" Q Magazine
"Each song is the work of a craftsman who knows his trade, and Tyson offers a glimpse into the future of country music classics" MIC.com
"His sweet, yet melancholy lyrics feel like they were probably written on a whiskey-stained bar napkin, just the way good country songs should be" Wide Open Country
Plus support by Erin Rae
Every now and then, a singer comes along who, as soon as you hear them sing, they make you stop everything you're doing and listen. Erin Rae is one of those singers.
Growing up in Jackson, Tennessee, she got an early introduction to folk music at home. Her mom and dad were both part-time musicians, playing their own brand of American roots music at churches, county fairs and coffee shops in west Tennessee Two decades later, she's still spending her time onstage — this time as the main act. As the leader of Erin Rae and the Meanwhiles, she walks the line between old-school folk and modern Americana, creating a sound that nods to her influences while pushing ahead toward something new.
It's music that breathes, filled with pedal steel, vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar, bright bursts of melody and plenty of space. We think this young lady is heading for the stars.
