The Cadillac Three
Bold and electric, THE CADILLAC THREE has proven to be a force with high-energy shows and gritty sonic instincts. Musical co-conspirators Jaren Johnston (Guitar & Lead Vocals), Kelby Ray (Bass Steel Guitar, Dobro, Acoustic & Vocals) and Neil Mason (Drums, Percussion & Vocals) have a sound all of their own that hovers between radio-ready Country anthems, hard-and-heavy Rock ballads and traditional Southern folk. Their highly-anticipated new album BURY ME IN MY BOOTS (Big Machine Records) is out now and features 14 tracks with writing credits attributed to Neil for “Graffiti,” a collaboration with Jaren on “Soundtrack To A Six Pack” and “Drunk Like You.” With a raw sound like no other, the buzz-worthy band organically builds around Neil’s thundering, melodic percussion and the sinewy intertwining of Jaren’s gruff vocals and guitar with Kelby’s lap steel, all ready to explode at a moment’s notice. In addition to their own catalogue, the guys have cuts for Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts and Miranda Lambert. Jaren most recently co-wrote and co-produced the title track with Steven Tyler for first Country solo album. The Grammy-nominated frontman picked up a CMA Triple Play Award for three chart-topping singles in a 12-month period: “Beachin’” (Jake Owen), “Sunshine & Whiskey” (Frankie Ballard) and “Raise ‘Em Up” (Keith Urban featuring Eric Church), which also earned Jaren an ACM Award nomination for Song of the Year. The Nashville natives, who met in high school, have grown a rabid fanbase across the globe with slots on Superstar tours and sold-out headline stops across Europe. TC3’s nonstop rollercoaster has resulted in capacity crowds at famous venues – O2 Academy Islington, Dingwalls and The Garage. Throughout November, they are returning for sold-out dates on their DON’T FORGET THE WHISKEY TOUR. The 2014 UK Classic Rock Roll of Honour: Best New Band became the most played new band on Planet Rock in 2015 and were invited to record a live session at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios. "Like Kings of Leon before them, they're poised for their first big break in the U.K. — where they've sold out every headlining show for nearly two years — before conquering their U.S. home turf,” heralded Rolling Stone. The raucous trio most recently spent time on the road with Florida Georgia Line’s DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR in the US bringing their “unrefined live show you won't want to miss" (PASTE).
