Today Paul Cauthen's new LP, Room 41, has been a hit with fans as well as critics. Co-written entirely by Cauthen at The Belmont Hotel in Dallas, TX, “one of the most fascinating, and eccentric, new voices in country music” (Rolling Stone) lived every single line of this record, and he’s survived to tell the tale.
Cauthen, nicknamed “Big Velvet” for his smooth, baritone voice, credits that survival in no small part to his collaborators on the album, a wide range of writers, musicians, and producers who rallied around him. Recorded at Niles City Sound (Leon Bridges, Nicole Atkins) and Dallas’ Modern Electric studio, the 10 tracks feature a who’s-who of modern Texas musicians, including Matt Pence(Jason Isbell, Nikki Lane), Beau Bedford and Jason Burt.
“…his new album may be what breaks him as a significant talent.”-American Songwriter


“Room 41, in all its unflattering, self-destructive, existential crisis glory, is Cauthen’s masterpiece. It might feel wrong to say all the pain was all worth it, but listening to these songs, it feels so right.”-No Depression


“Paul Cauthen continued to make a name for himself as one of the most interesting male vocalists in the Americana genre with the latest edition of his annual Big Velvet Revue.”
Billboard, The 11 Best Things We Saw At AmericanaFEST.”


“Room 41 finds Cauthen in peak writing form, yielding glimpses of vulnerability amidst Cadillac swagger.”
Texas Monthly


"Room 41 is a brawny, confessional album about making bad decisions, and trying to make sense of your place in a world of temptation, addiction, and sin. It's one of the best albums of the year."
