Baltimore roots-rocker Caleb Stine is set to host his fourth annual ‘Round the Mountain, a night celebrating Acoustic Roots Music, November 13th, at the Creative Alliance in Baltimore. Joining Stine will be Virginia’s Honey Dewdrops, Andy Friedman, a New Yorker cartoonist and hardscrabble country singer, called an “erudite redneck” by the Boston Globe, and Ken Kolodner the “outstanding” (NY Times) hammer dulcimer and fiddle player. The evening will be a journey through the roots of Americana Music.
This year has been a busy one for Stine. In addition to his solo-touring schedule and regular shows with alt-country rockers The Brakemen, he has collaborated with artists as diverse as Arty Hill( who has been called the future of Honky Tonk by the Houston Press), Kenny Liner of The Bridge, and rapper Saleem. Stine and Saleem’s long running partnership has produced the album, Outgrown These Walls, which the Baltimore Sun called, “Truly compelling.” The standout track from the album, “Baltimore”, was used by CNN in a news segment on prescription drug addiction. During his time on the road Stine has found time to share the stage with Jay Bennett, Deer Tick, Old '97s, Jason Isbell, Luther Dickinson, and Alvin Youngblood Heart among others.
Stine continues to tour in support of last release, I Wasn’t Built For a Life Like This. I Wasn’t Built for a Life Like This, Stine’s 5th full-length album, is a collection of ten-unflinchingly direct songs in which Stine continues to tell the story of his exploration in what he calls, “an evolving and eroding America.” The album has been garnering radio play and praise across the country.
