Caddle calls themselves the bastard sons of Southern Rock and claim influences as far-flung as emo and alt-country, not to mention classic country, punk and R&B. Their sound can be described as super-symphonic stew, equal parts rock-n-roll and southern-fried raucous punk. This five member band uses some Southern humor, hospitality and a raucous stage show that makes music lovers everywhere stand-up and take notice.

The group consists of Phillip Hyde, lead vocals; Drew Akin, guitar and vocals; Eric Watters, guitar and vocals; Chris Pottratz, bass; and Finney James, drums and vocals.

Caddle has opened shows for artists such as Molly Hatchet, the Reverend Horton Heat, and the Supersuckers. The group's full-length CD, will released this Summer.
