Cauthen has been the strongest, loudest singer in the room for as long as he can remember.

He grew up in Tyler, Texas, where his grandfather - a songwriter and gospel song leader originally from Lubbock who worked with artists including Buddy Holly, Sonny Curtis, and other Crickets - taught Cauthen and his two sisters to sing harmony. Since Cauthen released his debut album ‘My Gospel’, he’s criss-crossed the country supporting artists like Elle King, Cody Jinks, Margo Price and Ryan Bingham. In 2018 he’ll play Pickathon, Stagecoach, a gig with Shaky Graves and then take his band of aces around the world. “A triple-barrelled blast of Texas country, soul and holy-roller rockabilly” - Rolling Stone “The Tyler native sound like the Highwaymen all rolled into one: he’s got Willie’s phrasing, Johnny’s haggard quiver, Kristofferson’s knack for storytelling, and Waylon’s baritone.” - Texas Monthly “It’s country music that... reminds people of their mortality, of the relentless way life seems to come at you, but never makes you feel hopeless. ‘My Gospel’ is a sombre reminder of how lucky we are to be alive.” - Noisey
