At the beginning of his career, the Canadian Country Music Association awarded him Outstanding New Artist in 1985. In the years following the award, he toured Canada frequently, in addition to releasing independent singles. By the mid-'90s, he had built up a strong following, and in 1995, e had two Top 20 hits in Canada -- "Ready to Run" and "What Goes Around Comes Around." The following year, he made his stateside debut with "Fallen Angel," which was released on A&M Records. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
From the hills of Alderville First Nation in Ontario, Canada, Cale was fuelled by music since he could tie his shoes and has been taking audiences on a turbulent journey since he first picked up a guitar at 13. Cale himself describes the songs that up "Stars & Promises," his debut EP, and the sophomore EP "Til You Let Me Go," as different stages of his own life, each telling a different chater of the same story.
Aside from the records, Cale's unique performance uses little more than an acoustic guitar and a looping effect pedal and has given him the opportunity to perform across central and southern Ontario alongside acts like Ron Sexsmith, Scott Helman, Gentlemen Husbands, Jimmy Bowsill, Sarah Mark, 2016 SOCAN Songwriting Prize Winners Fast Romantics, and countless others.
