Australian Musician Makes Summit Debut

SUMMIT, NJ - After years of Summit being his home base while in the United States, Australian musician Travis Caudle – who’s just spent three months living and recording in Nashville – will debut his music in the downtown district.

The singer/songwriter, whose music has featured on TV shows Gossip Girl and Flash Forward, will perform as part of The Summit Festival of Fine Arts and Crafts on Sunday, June 23 held along Union Place. The festival features over 100 exhibitors displaying and selling their original works, a live open air-concert, outdoor café style dining and a free “hands on” craft section for the children.

“I am really excited about the chance to play at the event after spending so much time in the Summit,” Caudle said. “I’m very lucky to have friends who live there, so I’ve been able to make it the first and last stop of all of my tours of the U.S. over the past four years.”

An award-winning musician, Caudle was one of two Australians chosen to take part in the first Nashville Songwriter Residency grants, established by the Australia Council for the Arts – the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body.

While basing himself in Music City from February to May this year, he recorded six new songs with one of Australia’s most celebrated producers, Mark Moffatt, who has worked with the likes of Keith Urban, Stacey Earle, Tony Joe White and the Divinyls.

“Every recording I’ve done so far has been in Australia so recording in America, and in Nashville in particular, has been incredibly exciting and I’ve had the privilege of watching some of the world’s best musicians at work,” said Travis, who has now toured the US six times.

He and/or former band The Woodenelves have supported acts including Sia, The Black Crowes, The Church’s Marty Willson-Piper, Kasey Chambers, Hinder, and Tommy Emmanuel.

Caudle will perform at 10.30 a.m. and 12.30 p.m.

The Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Union Place and will kick off Discover Summit Arts, a weeklong celebration of the arts in the downtown, promoting Summit as a cultural destination rich in visual and performing arts.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
