With the release of his first solo record Sings Out! in the Fall
of 2000 Caleb Klauder established himself as an outstanding Americana
singer and songwriter. He has since assembled a powerful and talented
5 piece band that is captivating audiences wherever they perform. The
band includes Caleb Klauder on lead vocals and guitar, Jenny
Conlee (Decemberists) on piano and accordian. Jesse Emerson
(Amelia, Decemberists) on bass, Lewi Longmire on lead guitar
and Chris Hutton on drums. The Caleb Klauder Band creates a unique
sound that is a mix of folk, country and rock pulled together with Caleb's
rich, soulful voice and his amazing songwriting. This band has its roots
firmly in Americana and the energy they create on stage has been compared
to The Band and Neil Young with Crazy Horse.
Caleb Klauder turns out to be
asinger-songwriter with a rich country-flavored voice that sounds like
Townes Van Zandt one minute and Doug Sahm the next. His simple (but
not simpleminded) honkytonk ditties could easily coax half the bar into
that city cowboy shuffling-waltz thing they call dancing these days."
Caleb Klauder's Five Piece rock Band has been touring to glowing
reviews from folks who can't help but think of Neil Young and Crazy
Horse when the band kicks in."
