Paul Cauthen

We couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to Paul Cauthen, a singer, songwriter, and proud son of Tyler, Texas, who can’t and won’t be put into any box. “Steward of a rich, resonant, bass-leaning tenor dubbed Big Velvet – covers a lot of ground and embodies a lot of characters.” Making his WinterWonderGrass debut, we know you will love “Cauthen’s brand of unapologetic hedonism, and soul.

Paul Cauthen kept the fires of old-fashioned outlaw country burning in the 2010s, spiking his sinewy swagger with an undercurrent of gospel balanced by a hefty dose of midnight sleaze. Nicknamed “Big Velvet” due to his smooth baritone, Cauthen used the glitzy sound of “Cocaine Country Dancing” as a touchstone for “Country as Fuck,” a glitzy sideswipe at bro country that provided the first taste of his third album, Country Coming Down. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
