Additional Info:
Im a singer not a preacher, but these songs are my sermon, says Paul Cauthen. Were ripping each other apart out there, and forgiveness and mercy are whats going to get us through. I want to use my voice the best I can to spread that message while Im here on this Earth.Somewhere between an EP and an album, Cauthens new seven-track collection, Have Mercy, is a stunning showcase of the pure power of truth and love. Building off the success of My Gospel, the Texas troubadours breakout debut, Have Mercy pushes Cauthens songwriting to new heights as he searches for common ground and peace of mind in an increasingly polarized world. Fueled by nearly two straight years of personal and artistic growth on the road, the songs reflect a newfound maturity and creative self-assurance. Cauthens rich, velvety baritone is still very much the centerpiece here, but its the craftsmanship that dazzles more than anything. Have Mercy is the work of an artist whos turned his life over to the music, body and soul, and the rewards for his devotion are undeniably on display throughout the record.I wanted to make an honest leap from My Gospel to Have Mercy, Cauthen explains. I wanted to elevate everything: the songwriting, the sound, the live show, the look and the feel of it all. Ive given up everything for the music and Ive grown stronger because of it.While hed already earned a reputation as a fierce and fiery frontman from his days in the critically acclaimed band Sons of Fathers, it wasnt until the 2016 release of My Gospel that Cauthen truly tapped into the full depth of his prodigious talents.Rolling Stonecalled the album a triple-barreled blast of Texas country, soul and holy-roller rockabilly delivered by a big-voiced crooner, whileVice Noiseydubbed it a somber reminder of how lucky we are to be alive, andTexas Monthlyraved that Cauthen sound[s] like the Highwaymen all rolled into one: hes got Willies phrasing, Johnnys haggard quiver, Kristoffersons knack for storytelling, and Waylons baritone. The album landed on a slew of Best Of lists at the years end and earned Cauthen dates with Elle King, Margo Price, Billy Joe Shaver, and Cody Jinks along with festival appearances from Austin City Limits and Pickathon to Stagecoach and Tumbleweed.It was during those relentless months of touring that Cauthen first began to explore the songs that make up Have Mercy.A lot of these songs are tunes weve been playing live and fans have been asking about for a while, says Cauthen. Theyre showstoppers when we play them out on the road, and I believe the whole purpose of putting out a record is so that people can have a little bit of that concert experience back at home.
