“I not want Rolling Stones. I want K-bob [Caleb].”
— My toddler niece choosing my music over the Rolling Stones
Hey, my name is Caleb.
I'm a songwriter and producer based in Austin, Tx. I have two kids and they're the best things in my life.
On May 20, 2022, I released an EP called what has weathered me, a record about what I've learned from what has worn me down. These songs came from my experiences over the previous few years. A pandemic, a son with serious medical issues, relationships ending, losing my religion, and the general difficulty of holding onto hope.
In 2021, I finished a year-and-a-half-long project called PHENOMENA, where I released one song at a time in order to focus on the quality of each song. Each of the songs addresses an aspect of existence that's true for every person.
In 2019, I released a two-part album called Where Color Survives. It was a look into the spiritual crisis I faced in my late-20s after growing up in the Evangelical Christian world. Part one is about my spiritual deconstruction; part two, my spiritual reconstruction.
I started releasing music in 2009, which now includes a bunch of albums, EPs, and singles. I record all my music from home and I always have. A basement, garage, walk-in closet, multiple bedrooms, and now my living room. I like it that way. I'm an introvert so I like to be in my own space when creating.
It's really cool to see my music resonating with people. Here are some nice things folks have said about my music:
“The harmonies on [Not Gone] are absolutely stunning. FULL STOP. ...This is one of the most intriguing folk tunes I’ve heard in all of 2020. I hope the complexity of this piece of music is not lost on listeners; it’s really something special.”
“Authentic. Open. Honest... Everybody Breaks tears his last barriers to vulnerability down and forges them into the most personal album of his career thus far.”
“...He's definitely got talent that's beyond his years. ”
