Paul Cauthen,who played Tønder Festival last year, has spent recent years establishing his reputation as one of the most interesting songwriters and voices on the American country music scene. In 2016 he released his album Gospel, which caused Rolling Stone magazine to include him in their ‘Ten new country artists you need to know’ list. In 2018 the successor, the EP Have Mercy, appeared. Paul Cauthen is classic outlaw country, and The Austin Chronicle wrote of him “the Gospel album introduces the coolest Texas baritone, somewhere between Waylon Jennings’ raw power and Elvis Presley’s vibrato croon.” Both recordings reference Paul Cauthen’s childhood when he sang in a church choir. Before going solo, he played in a band called Sons of Fathers, who became popular with the album Burning Days (2013). In the past winter, Paul Cauthen shared a Washington DC residency with Steve Earle. His only Danish festival concert in 2019.
