In high school, Caleb co-wrote a full-length musical containing 24 original songs, with writing partner and next door neighbor, Alison Holman. Together, they have staged and workshopped the musical with a cast of 15 actors, performing in Idaho, Utah and later, in New York City.

After high school, Caleb was employed as a church music director and conducted a community-wide choir with featured soloists and full orchestra. He also performed leading roles in several theatre productions, including “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Little Shop of Horrors”.

At 24, Caleb moved to Nashville where he signed publishing contracts with Universal BMG and Daywind Publishing, co-writing with gospel greats such as Sue C. Smith, Joel Lindsey and Carol Cymbala. His songs have been recorded by many of today’s top country and gospel artists including Dailey & Vincent, The Lewis Family, The Perrys, The Collingsworth Family, Reggie & Ladye Love Smith, Sue Dodge, Karen Peck and Ty Herndon.

Caleb’s solo career began with his first album “Classic”, which was distributed as an exclusive in 300+ retail stores nationally, selling over 12,000 units. His follow-up albums include “Christmas”, “Dream” and “Live In Memphis”.

There is power in music, and more importantly, the message and spirit behind the music to change, inspire, comfort, heal and encourage the listener.
