Cinematic rock duo The Caughtery (a duo of long-time Austin music veterans Lisa Tingle and David Gayler) have released their debut single ‘Fragile’, a stunning preview of their debut eponymous EP.

Mixed by the legendary Tim Palmer (Robert Plant, Ozzy Osbourne, Tin Machine, The Mission, HIM, U2, Pearl Jam), who jointly produced it together with David Gayler, this EP was recorded by Lee Jackson at Studio71West near Austin. Tim Palmer also contributes guitar on this debut single.

This contemporary rock offering, influenced by musical threads running from the 60s through 00s, presents a series of “musical paintings”, expressing the pressure and fragility of the human state over the last two years.

This debut effort features drummer Tom Brechtlein, who brings a rich experience with him, having performed with Chick Corea, Kenny Loggins, Eric Johnson, Robben Ford, Al DiMeola, Jean-Luc Ponty and Rickie Lee Jones, among others. It also involves bass contributions by Brian Lippman and Ricky Phillips (of Styx and previously with Coverdale/Page, Bad English, The Babys, Ted Nugent, Angel).

Two musical soul-searchers born just 5 days apart and originally hailing from opposite coasts, Tingle and Gayler both grew up in musical families. Lisa and David’s shared diverse musical loves (rock, indie, fusion, jazz, blues and R&B) sparked a genuine connection, their mutual addiction for creating unique music ultimately moving their storytelling note by note.

The duo originated in 2020, when David called Lisa to record a song that fit her vibe. What started out as a one-off collaboration ultimately turned into a full EP of material under the name The Caughtery. On this debut EP, Lisa’s lyrics explore such themes as relationships, new and old, the passing of friends and the state of our world today.

Described as a “Female Robert Plant” with the power of Janis Joplin and the soul of Aretha Franklin, Lisa Tingle has received multiple awards over the past decade at the Austin Music Awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year, Band of the Year, Best Song, Musician of the Year, and Album of the Year. She has toured and performed with many legendary acts, such as Etta James, Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble, Ray Benson (Asleep at the Wheel), Eric Johnson, Stephen Bruton, Monte Montgomery and Marcia Ball.

Having launched her music career in LA, Lisa gigged, recorded, and was also a session vocalist for writers at Almo-Irving Publishing (part of A&M Records), singing songs submitted to the likes of Tina Turner and Dolly Parton. Moving to Texas, she formed the rock band Black Pearl and landed a record deal with Capitol Records, her songs catching the attention of TV producers with placements on ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ and ‘Melrose Place’. She again worked in publishing, singing for TV and radio commercials, films and songwriters. She contributed to several soundtracks with Ray Benson, including Jean-Claude Van Damme’s ‘Universal Soldier’, followed by work on Sandra Bullock’s ‘Miss Congeniality’ and Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Spy Kids 3’. She has released six solo albums to wide acclaim and ample international airplay, including on Britain’s BBC Radio.

David Gayler is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, songwriter and studio owner based in Spicewood, Texas. Born in upstate New York, Gayler relocated to Texas in the mid-80s to attend college. Having started out on piano, he eventually transitioned to his beloved instruments – acoustic and electric guitar. A member of various bands throughout his musical career, he has opened for such notable artists as The Romantics, Charlie Sexton and Jerry Jeff Walker, in addition to being a member of the Party Band during MTVs journey down to Texas in the late 1980s

The ‘Fragile’ single is out May 25, available digitally, including via SpotifyAmazon and elsewhere.  The full self-titled EP will be released on July 15.
