Paul Cauthen's third album, Country Coming Down is packed with attitude and aptitude, which will surely reinforce his staying power as a musician and songwriter.
Paul Cauthen first earned his reputation as a fire-breathing truth-teller with acclaimed roots rock band Sons Of Fathers, but it wasn’t until the 2016 release of his solo debut My Gospel that he truly tapped into the full depth of his prodigious talents.
Two albums and six years down the road, Paul delivers Country Coming Down via his own Velvet Rose Records in collaboration with Thirty Tigers, the highly anticipated follow-up to 2019’s Room 41, which debuted at #3 on the Top New Artists album sales chart and #7 Americana/Folk album sales.
The singer, songwriter and proud son of Tyler, Texas - steward of a rich, resonant, bass-leaning tenor dubbed Big Velvet - covers a lot of ground and embodies a lot of characters. He'll tell you right off the bat that he's "Country As Fuck," throwing down a wad of "Fuck You Money" and heading into the night to "Cut a Rug." His "Country Clubbin'" has as much to do with swinging as his swing. But a song or two later dude's vowing to be loving his wife "Till the Day I Die" and, in Country Coming Down's title track, dreams of living in "a cabin in the country, far away from the city lights" where "life is slow and easy."
