The Suffers

The Suffers are a ten-piece band from Houston, Texas, who are redefining the sound of Gulf Coast soul, intertwining elements of classic American soul with rock 'n' roll. Both sonically and visually arresting, the large ensemble packs each position of the rhythm section and horn section with a level of talent and taste that provides the perfect foundation for singer Kam Franklin’s massive voice. The band’s sincerity and emotion are laid bare in their music, which has garnered an audience so broad and varied that they may prove to be the panacea for a jaded and stratified live music scene. 

In a short time, the band has progressed from packing local Houston venues to accepting invitations for main stage performances at the 20th annual Austin Reggae Festival, Houston’s Free Press Summer Festival, and Paste Magazine’s Untapped Festival where they’ve shared the stage with the likes of The Wailers, Mavis Staples, Alabama Shakes, The Walkmen and Cat Power. The Suffers have accepted four Houston Press Music Awards in two years and were listed among the top musical acts to watch in 2014 by The Houston Press and Houston Chronicle.

Caleb Caudle

Following in the tracks of Gram Parsons, Merle Haggard and George Strait, North Carolina native, Caleb Caudle makes pure country music rooted in the genre's glory days, back when melody, mood and message ruled the roost. Caudle's music finds the middle ground between the classic twang of late-Seventies/early-Eighties country and the dusty stomp of modern-day Americana. His new album, Carolina Ghost, has garnered praise by American Songwriter, Rolling Stone, Glide Magazine and more.
