Rooted in the music of North Carolina's mountains and Piedmont, Chapel Hill-based Mipso gives these traditional influences a distinctly modern twist. With an old-school combination of fiddle, mandolin, bass, guitar, and four voices in close harmony, Mipso's Jacob, Wood, Joseph, and Libby mix bluegrass ingredients with a healthy dose of 21st century energy. Over the past two years Mipso has released an EP and a full-length album titled "Long, Long Gone" and performed to enthusiastic crowds across North Carolina, from Asheville to Greenville and many places in between. This year alone they've performed sold out concerts at Carrboro's historic Cat's Cradle three times, solidifying their place as the most promising young band to come out of Chapel Hill in a long, long time. The group will graduate from the University of North Carolina in May of 2013 with plans to take Mipso on the road far beyond their home state.
Caleb Caudle
Caleb Caudle
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
