ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Songwriter, bassist and banjo player, Ashleigh Caudill, grew up in Western Colorado and began playing at an early age. She received a scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music, said goodbye to her small hometown and relocated to Boston Massachusetts where she was quickly accepted into the New England acoustic music scene. While climbing the ranks of freelance bassists, she discovered her love of both clawhammer banjo and songwriting. Shortly after releasing her debut solo album, I'm not Fallin, Bluegrass Unlimited declared her "a voice to be reckoned with."

Caudill, now residing in Nashville Tennessee, is enjoying new found success in the songwriting community with her tune Row By Row being recorded on Balsam Range's IBMA album of the year, Papertown, and topping the Bluegrass Gospel Charts summer 2013. In addition to winning 2nd place at Merlefest's Chris Austin Songwriting Contest two years in a row, she continues to write and get cuts, while still keeping up with her freelance bass work, solo tours and fronting her own band!

Sweet yet powerful vocals, accompanied by the rolling mellow tones of her open back banjo and a fine cast of musicians, draw the listener into the tales she spins. The songs are fresh and have a post modern bluegrass feel and sound while hints of old time and traditional music elements feather throughout the lyrics and melodies. Ashleigh can be found traveling around in her van, Shevannegains, sharing her sounds with music enthusiasts everywhere.


"Ashleigh Caudill has an undeniable gift for songwriting with a keen aptitude for carving out a tune." -Claire Lynch

"Our alumni are making their mark in bluegrass and related musics: Casey Driessen, Rushad Eggleston, Natalie Maines, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, Andy Hall, Chris Pandolfi, Bryn Davies, Japanese banjo player Hiro Arita, and some newly minted alumni like Nate Leath, Ashleigh Caudill, Joe Walsh, and Charlie Worsham." -Berklee President Roger H. Brown, IBMA Keynote Address

"Ashleigh is a talented vocalist who has created an excellent collection by blending original material with established pieces. The prime focus of "I'm Not Fallin'" is on her vocal talents, and she certainly confirms that she is a voice to be reckoned with." -Bluegrass Unlimited

"Ashleigh reminds me of why I love music so much, not only is she a great musician, singer and songwriter, with very clever arrangements, but she sings and performs her tunes with a passion and joy that everyone strives to achieve. I love every tune on this record and I know that everyone else is going to fall in love with her and her original music... Great job Ashleigh." -Tim Carter: Musician/Recording Engineer

"The harmony was a truly sweet medley... Ashleigh’s voice made a beautiful, polite country drawl that would entrance any country or bluegrass fan." -Jeremy Maxwell, Fort Collins Local Music Examiner, examiner.com
