David Childers & The Overmountain Men
David Childers was born at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, N.C. on August 14, 1951. He grew up in nearby Mt. Holly, N.C. and eventually attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He won the American Academy of Poets Award for North Carolina in 1973. He has 2 published volumes of poetry, “American Dusk”(Buffalo Books, San Francisco, 1977), and “The Monster”(CPR Press, Charlotte, 1993).

He has focused primarily on song writing for the last 20 years. His article “One Night At The Gaston”, published in Charlotte Magazine and re-printed in “Making Notes, Music Of The Carolinas”, won a Southeastern Magazine Award in 2008.

Childers has written several albums worth of songs. His latest efforts have been collaborations with Bob Crawford of the Avett Brothers. In 2010, teaming up with Robert Childers, Randy Saxon and Scott Dailey under the band name Over Mountain Men, they put out an album, “Glorious Day “(Ramseur, 2010) . Other Childers albums include “Hard Time County(Rank, 1999),“Room 23“,(Ramseur/Silver Meteor, 2005); “Burning In Hell”(Single Wing, 2007); and several others.

In the past year, Childers songs have been performed by the Avett Bros., and the recently deceased Scottish singer/songwriter Jackie Levin.

Caleb Caudle’s last album, Tobacco Town brought him national exposure upon its release in 2012. With Blurt Magazine noting “…jaw-droppingly fine songs steeped in classic Earle, Clark, McMurtry and Van Zandt,” Caudle decided to take his Americana-rich songs out on the road.

In just a year, Caudle has played over 300 shows in 30 plus states, performed on the web-radio sensation Daytrotter, and even found time to pack up all of his belongings to make the move from North Carolina to New Orleans.

For the new album, which was all written during his time on the road, Caudle decided to record at Echo Mountain studios in Asheville, NC. Along with his producer and engineer, Jon Ashley (Dawes, Band Of Horses, The Avett Brothers), Caleb manages to craft a beautiful composition of his road-worn songs with some help from Lydia Loveless (harmony vocals), Whit Wright (pedal steel), Jordan Powers (bass), Greg Herndon (piano), Tommy Scifres (guitar), and Jack Foster (drums).

Paint Another Layer On My Heart is a fully realized vision consisting of classic songs, instrumentation, and production.

"I just want to connect with folks," says Caudle. "This album is about love and distance. That's something I feel like most people have had to go through, something that was very much a part of my life this past year."

“A record rich with immaculately constructed roots rock”
-Josh Neas, Aquariumdrunkard.com

“It sounds like he stepped straight outta Lone Star territory, with jaw-droppingly fine songs steeped in classic Earle, Ely, Clark, McMurtry and Van Zandt.”
- Fred Mills, BLURT

“…when Caudle sings his sweet ode to his late grandmother, you’ll be excused if your eyes well up. Catch him before he becomes NC’s next Americana dream.”
-Mark Kemp, Shuffle Magazine

“There is not a bad song, not a misstep, anywhere to be found.”
- Ed Bumgardner, Relish Magazine

“The sweet spot between alt.country and roots pop.”
-Spencer Griffith, Independent Weekly

“However, as always, the true standout instrument is Caleb’s voice. It’s as singularly Americana as Jay Farrar, but his range is that of a soul singer.”
-Eli Petersen, Twangville.com
