Fronting and writing for poppunk band GameFaCe in the early 1990s,his voice and knack for a memorable hookand melody quickly established a dedicatedfollowing. He led the band around the globe,gradually shedding youthful exuberance for astring of increasingly mature releases, beforefnally abandoning the tour van in 2003.It wasn't long before Caudill reappeared,acoustic guitar in hand. The new earthiersound was a logical progression from his punkroots. The release of acclaimed debut album,Here's What You Should Do, confrmed thiswas an artist equally comfortable mixing pop,indie and alt-country to create somethingfresh. a steady stream of releases followed,including his second full length, Try To Be Hereand the aptly titled companion eP, Had To BeThere. The trademark pop sensibility burnsas bright as ever, and his lyrics connect withhis loyal fan-base, confrming him as a mancomfortable in his own skin. Never one tosit still, Caudill teamed up with his longtimefriend, Popeye Vogelsang (FarsIde) for aproject called Your FaVorITe TraINwreCkand released a self-titled album in 2012.In 2014 GameFaCe reunited and releasedtheir strongest and most deeply felt batch ofmaterial to date, Now is What Matters Now,which was very well received by fans.after the death of his friend Jon Bunch, Jeffwas asked to perform the seNse FIeld track'Voice' with the surviving members at theeast coast memorial concert and shortyafterward decided to record the track andrelease it (with the BlaCk saBBaTH song'wishing well' on the b side) as a beneftfor Jon's family. 'Voice' is a straightforwardbut different take on the the original, with amore subdued twang than normally heard onhis solo work. 'wishing well' is a ambitiousadaptation of the original that shifts much thesonic heaviness to the weight of the wordsand chords giving the song a new dimension.
