Wrapping up a tour alongside Margo Price and soon opening for fellow Austinite Shakey Graves, Tyler, Texas-born singer-songwriter Paul Cauthen is breaking out of the local scene with some bold new outlaw-influenced goodies! Cauthen’s country-coated original compositions and live performances stood out this past SXSW, where he deservedly gained plenty of new listeners and attention in national publications.
Cauthen announced his sophomore EP Have Mercy back at the close of April and has set a release date for June 22nd. But let’s face it – a month is a long time. Fortunately for the Cauthen-crazed listeners, a new single was released just today in anticipation of Have Mercy and you can potentially get a live premiere of some new material when Cauthen plays midnight tonight at The White Horse as part of Hot Luck Fest. Don’t give up if you can’t make it out or your hands are tied elsewhere for Hot Luck – say farewell to the work week with “Resignation”.
