Room 41

Release Date – 6 September 2019

Paul Cauthen has announced his new album Room 41 will be released on September 6 via Lightning Rod Records. Co-written entirely by Cauthen at The Belmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas, Cauthen lived every single line of this record, and he’s survived to tell the tale.

Cauthen, nicknamed “Big Velvet” for his smooth, baritone voice, credits that survival in no small part to his collaborators on the album, a wide range of writers, musicians, and producers who rallied around him. Recorded at Niles City Sound and Modern Electric studio, the ten tracks feature talented Texas musicians, including Matt PenceBeau Bedford and Jason Burt.

Watch the lead track “Cocaine Country Dancing” :

Written during a stint spent living out of a suitcase in the artist-haven that is the Belmont, Room 41 chronicles Cauthen’s white-knuckle journey to the brink and back, a harrowing experience that landed him in and out of the hospital as he careened between ecstasy and misery more times than he could count. Cauthen has long been a pusher of boundaries (musical and otherwise).

Cauthen first earned his reputation as a fire-breathing truth-teller with the acclaimed roots rock band Sons of Fathers, but it wasn’t until the 2016 release of his solo debut, My Gospel, that he truly tapped into the full depth of his prodigious talents. He followed it up two years later with Have Mercy, an EP.

Here is a live version of one of our favourite past Paul Cauthen songs – “Still Drivin'”:
