Songwriter Spotlight: Caleb Mills
Caleb Mills started singing early on in his life. His entire family was on the musical side of things, especially his grandfather who was a renowned musician for some big names. Caleb's grandfather was a great inspiration during his music journey helped him get to where he is now. Caleb Mills' music can be described as country with added rock and soul. Based out of Alabama, Caleb has been traveling back and forth to Nashville to connect with other writers in town and to play some shows. When asking about moving to Nashville, he told us, "It's only about an hour drive, the music scene in Alabama is not like Nashville, but it benefits me where I get to play more shows and get my music out there."
Music is Caleb Mills full-time job. Right now, he's growing his fan-base on TikTok and social media platforms. Being a content creator can bring in royalties from posts and live streaming. Being active on social media is crucial for artists today as you can't walk into a record company anymore and hand someone a CD of your songs. Everything is digital and online.
Every few days Caleb is in Nashville writing songs then heads back home. He's been co-writing for over three years and how he makes his good friends. It's easy to write with people he knows and built a relationship with. His latest release, "Catfishin," has been getting great traction on social media. A few of his recent videos reached over 3 million views. His single, "Survive," peaked at number 72 on the charts and is still going strong. After "Catfishin," there are no set plans to put anything out for the rest of the year, but he has songs stashed away and ready to go. With an artist like Caleb, there is always an opportunity to surprise fans.
"Catfishin," has a real southern rock feel that meets a bro-country song. This is a song you play at a bonfire or driving down some backroads with your favorite people. If you need a reference of who he sounds like, it's a mix between Kameron Marlowe and Muscadine Bloodline. There's a smooth electric guitar with your classic rock country riffs, some harmonic, good acoustic guitar that backs up the entire song, and a great production. Clocking in at two minutes and fifty-two seconds this is perfect for radio. I could hear this on your typical Nashville stations.
