Tim Caudill

Born and raised in Southern Ohio's Brown County, Tim Caudill has been making up songs ever since he was a kid. Together with his younger brother, Matt - the duo would write and perform songs to entertain: parents, grandparents and neighbors. Tim's uncle, George Jones (Whiskey River & Sugar Mountain Express - not the OTHER George Jones) starting teaching him guitar at the age of 8.


In 1995, Tim founded the hardcore/punk band CAGED. CAGED fused the energy of hardcore/punk music with the heaviness of classic heavy metal. CAGED recorded and toured with 1% Records in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. A journalist in Wilmington, North Carolina bitterly dismissed CAGED as "circa 1988 Metallica, but with Glenn Danzig as the lead singer and songwriter" - a barb meant as an insult but taken by CAGED as a huge compliment.

After many years of ramblin', Tim returned back home to Brown County, Ohio...and returned to the music of his youth: folk, blues and bluegrass.
