Introducing: Callaghan

Originally from Lincolnshire, Callaghan moved to the US in summer 2010 to record and tour with Shawn Mullins. Since then she’s been busily carving out a career for herself and winning fans all across the USA. Back home in the UK the BBC’s Bob Harris has been a strong supporter, regularly playing her music on both his Radio 2shows and describing her as ‘a wonderful artist…. beautiful, warm and hugely talented’.

Callaghan performs live on piano and guitar and delivers a stunning vocal which earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan and Emmy Lou Harris. Her debut album, Life in Full Colour, was released in summer 2012 to a great reaction. The Huffington Post described the album as ‘joyful listening’ while InLiveMusic simply said ‘Callaghan’s voice is stunning’.

Now part of the Nashville singer-songwriter community, she recently appeared in the BBC Four show Bob Harris My Nashville, and performed live in the companion show Back to Beth’s: A Nashville House concert alongside stars such as Beth Nielsen Chapman, Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires. Her new album, A History of Now, scheduled for UK release on 12th April, was was produced in Nashville by Dennis Matkosky. The new record showcases Callaghan’s gift for melody and impactful songwriting in a collection which ranges from uplifting, exuberant anthems to poignant, mesmerizing ballads.
