Kaleb McIntire's climb in the music industry has been a rapid succession of events compacted in a short four year sprint starting in 2010 when he won the regional "Colgate Country Showdown" competition. Days after the win Kaleb put his college pursuits on hold to direct his hyper work ethic in the direction of his life long passion for music, songwriting, and live performance.
Kaleb's first major effort was the writing and recording of his freshman CD titled "Scars" and during this project he aligned himself with respected and successful Nashville based writers and producers such as Rich McCready, Davy Ulbrich, and Brian Maher. The first single off the "Scars" cd titled "Redneck In All Of Us" was released to the highly competitive Nashville Music Row Charts in January 2012. The single was immediately received with enthusiasm and spins catapulting it to the top 50 and ending with a high #32 position. That year, in support of his first successful single, Kaleb did numerous radio guest spots and live solo appearances in the midwest. Consequently the buzz surrounding Kaleb and his growing presence in Nashville caused live show offers to pour in. Kaleb's love of "hard core" country music paralleled to outlaw greats like Waylon, Coe, Haggard, etc, led him on the hunt for a new band to develop a rougher, edgier, raw sound. He sought out and found like minds with his current and Texas based band members Bryant Hunter, Damon McBee, and Shea Henley. The four immediately set off on a six month stint of midwest club dates and grueling rehearsals in which they developed and honed a unique fresh hybrid form of traditional hard core party'n country music.
Kaleb and his band are currently based out of North Texas and are recording a new cd in Austin Texas scheduled for release February 2013. In conjunction with the new cd, KMB will be releasing a new single titled "Don't Want To See You Go" to Texas Music Radio February 2013. The connected Texas live tour dates for February, March, and April are soon to be released on Facebook, Youtube, and Kaleb's web site.
