Reservoir has signed outlaw country singer-songwriter Paul Cauthen to a publishing deal through its joint venture with One Riot.
The deal includes his full catalog, including the recent single “Rain On My Mind” with Diplo featuring Cauthen and Sierra Ferrell, as well as Cauthen’s single “Hometeam,” plus future works.
Known for his outlaw country gospel-infused style, Cauthen’s voice earned him the nickname “Big Velvet,” taken from a song title on his album Room 41. He launched his music career as one half of the Americana indie folk-rock duo Sons of Fathers with David Beck, releasing a self-titled album in 2011, followed by Burning Days in 2013.
Cauthen went on to focus on his solo career and released his debut album, My Gospel, in 2016. In 2018, Cauthen released an EP entitled Have Mercy and made his Grand Ole Opry debut. He released two additional solo albums, Room 41 (2019) and Country Coming Down (2022), with Room 41 reaching No. 2 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Albums chart.
“Paul’s firecracker talent, deeply soulful voice, and exceptional storytelling all contribute something really refreshing to modern country music and to our Reservoir/One Riot family,” says Reservoir Executive Vice President John Ozier. “We look forward to helping share his unique music with audiences everywhere.”
One Riot President Amy Patton adds, “Paul is a magnetic writer and performer who is disrupting and reshaping the country genre. He can break your heart in one moment and take you to the party with the next. He’s a trailblazer and a showman, and we could not be more grateful and excited to be on this journey with him.”
“I’m very excited to be partnering with One Riot Music and Reservoir,” says Cauthen. “From the first meetings it was clear that we share the same vision of putting creativity above everything else.”
