Event Description

Caleb grew up in a musical family and was on stage by age 5.  “Singing was an obsession everywhere I went for as long as I can remember.  It’s the only “instrument” you can practice pretty much anywhere you are without any equipment.  I thought if I just sang everywhere I went, I could maybe get decent at it.”  His father was an acoustic singer/songwriter, and around age 16 Caleb gravitated toward the acoustic guitar’s natural tones.  Influenced by folk, reggae, 90’s “unplugged”, and artists such as Sublime, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper and Eddy Vedder, Caleb’s original songs have a unique feel all their own.  “Tune Your Vibrations” is a classic love song that reminds us why we fell in love in the first place.  “Still Life in Motion” and “Panoramic Planet” are songs of reflection.  And uplifting originals such as “You and I” are anthems to eternal optimism.  His live shows weave together original and cover songs for a riveting acoustic experience.  Caleb is performing solo acoustic shows across Iowa and also sings lead vocals in local Red Hot Chili Peppers Tribute, Rockinfreakapotamus.
