We LOVE supporting up and coming artists and when we get to see them opening for some of our favorite boys, even better!
Caldwell, a South Carolina native, is touring with Nick Carter on his #WhoIAm tour, which starts it’s second leg in Akron, Ohio on November 9th. We reached out to Caldwell to learn a little about the artist. Check out our interview below, and check him out on tour with Nick Carter this month! Tickets: https://nickcarter.com/events/
BSBFangirls: Tell us about yourself and how you got into music?
Caldwell: My name is Caldwell and I’m a 24-year-old, music pioneer from South Carolina. I got into music, because it was the only way that I saw an outlet to be the me. I didn’t have to fit in anyone’s box or meet the norms people had laid out for me…I could do whatever I want.
BSBFangirls: Give us your quick elevator pitch on your sound
Caldwell: To sum it up…my music speaks for itself.
BSBFangirls: Who is your biggest musical influence?
Caldwell: The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley.
BSBFangirls: What inspired your latest song?
Caldwell: Just trying to show my intention and direction of where my music journey is going. The record is called “Flying Pass,” and I was trying to communicate that there ‘ain’t no way’ I can be stopped once we get the green light.
BSBFangirls: Manifest your dream tour – who would you love to tour with someday?
Caldwell: I’d like to open first, open second, and close the show…it’s ALL ME!
BSBFangirls: What has been your biggest achievement in music so far?
Caldwell: I don’t consider anything I do an achievement, and I’m not sure that I will ever think of it that way. I just have a long list of things I need to get done, and after that…there will be another list of things to-do. I’m currently going down that list and checking them off one by one. Whether it’s touring, plaques, features, whatever…I’m just creating my achievement list and checking things off daily.
BSBFangirls: Before this gig, what did you know about Backstreet Boys and were you a fan?
Caldwell: I knew they wanted it ‘that way,’ and my Mom loved them…that was about it.
BSBFangirls: Before this gig, what did you know about Nick Carter’s solo music?
Caldwell: I knew he could hold his own weight on a record. I was in Vegas when they made his “Superman” record, and I remember coming in the studio and being blown away at his range vocally, along with his songwriting.
BSBFangirls: What about this tour are you most excited about?
Caldwell: Seeing the Niagara Falls and interacting with new fans.
BSBFangirls: What would you like people to walk away with after seeing you perform live?
Caldwell: Hopefully, some new music to listen to and a t-shirt from the merch booth.
BSBFangirls: What else do you want us to know about you as a person or a musician?
Caldwell: I’m going to be bigger than Elvis…that about sums it up!
We are looking forward to seeing Caldwell out with Nick Carter this month!
