Caleb Klauder

Caleb Klauder
Caleb Klauder and his country band, from Portland Oregon, have been fueling the national music scene with a fresh and gritty style of country music since 2007. The band plays Caleb’s original songs as well as classics from some of the greats such as Ray Price, The Louvin Brothers, Jimmy Martin, and the Carter Family. Caleb leads the band on guitar and mandolin, accompanied by pedal steel and electric guitar, twin fiddles, upright bass and drums. Whether he’s crooning on a slow ballad or driving a two-step with the mandolin, Caleb’s music is pure and energetic.
The Caleb Klauder Country Band features Caleb on vocals, guitar and mandolin; Ned Folkerth (Pinetop Seven, Lewi Longmire) plays drums; Paul Brainard (Richmond Fontaine) plays dobro, six string electric and steel guitar; Betse Ellis (The Wilders) plays fiddle and sings; Stephen "Sammy" Lind (Foghorn Stringband) plays fiddle and guitar and sings; Sophie Vitells plays fiddle and sings; Jesse Emerson (Amelia, Flatirons) plays the bass fiddle. Caleb currently plays mandolin and sings with the Foghorn Stringband, a hard-driving traditional American string band. Foghorn has toured extensively throughout the United States and has traveled to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Malaysia. The group has recorded four albums, one for Nettwerk Records, and has also recorded and performed with Dirk Powell as the Dirk Powell band.
Caleb grew up on Orcas Island, Washington, in a small, rural community. As a young boy, Caleb played the harmonica and saxophone; at the age of twelve he began to learn the guitar and, shortly after, to write songs. Caleb and childhood friend David Andrews wrote their first song together at age fifteen, and continued to do so through high school, college, and beyond. In 1990, they co-founded the collaborative folk-rock group Calobo, centered around Caleb and David's original songs. Calobo became a Northwest musical staple in the mid-nineties and went on to tour the United States and record five full length albums. From there, Caleb went on to play mandolin and sing with Pig Iron, a Portland-based traditional stringband. Caleb also contributed to Pig Iron as a songwriter. Caleb Klauder recorded his debut solo album, titled SINGS OUT, while playing with Pig Iron. SINGS OUT was produced by the young and energetic producer/musician Luther Russell. Dangerous Mes and Poisonous Yous is Caleb's second solo release and has received international attention since being released in 2007. Western Country is Caleb's third full length album.
