Biography

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.

In 2013, Tyson released High On Lonesome, his debut EP, which features Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart) on electric guitar. The release was featured on CMT.com and in American Songwriter Magazine, as well as numerous other outlets. Tyson has recently been opening shows for Dwight Yoakam on the road, in addition to wrapping up a new record which heavily features Robert Ellis on guitar and vocals. In April 2014, Tyson was featured as one of PolicyMic’s “9 Real Country Music Stars of Our Generation.”

“Tyson channels all the woe and despair you could find in his native Texas on the album, crafting meandering and warbling ballads that harken back to the heartbreak songs of old country.” - American Songwriter Magazine

“You can tell that he hears Hank Sr.’s lonesome yodeling and Gram Parson’s rock-to-country reaching through modern ears. And boy, is his pleading, heart-on-sleeve emotionalism refreshing right about now.” - Nashville Scene

“Each song is the work of a craftsman who knows his trade, and Tyson offers a glimpse into the future of country music classics.” - PolicyMic.com

“His debut EP, which sounds like a dispatch from the early ‘50s, is a striking piece of work, and one which only impresses more with repeat listens.” – DFW.com
