Callaghan to play Hare & Hounds Bham

Originally from Lincolnshire Callaghan moved to the USA in summer 2010 to record and tour with Grammy-Nominee Shawn Mullins, since then she’s been performing and winning fans all across the USA. Callaghan plays piano and guitar and delivers a stunning vocal which earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan and Emmy Lou Harris. Her songwriting chronicles the stories, experiences and emotions which are part of everyone’s lives.

A long-time Shawn Mullins fan, she contacted the Atlanta singer-songwriter through MySpace and, after being knocked out by her music, he agreed to produce her debut album. Life in Full Colour was tracked in and around Atlanta and released in summer 2012 to a great reaction. Since then Callaghan has been on the road touring with artists including Shawn Mullins, Ed Kowalczyk, Matthew Perryman-Jones and more across 46 states.

Her new album A History of Now was entirely fan funded via Pledge Music and 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. Since its release in April 2015 it has been earning praise and airplay on both sides of the pond.

Following her appearance at the C2C festival in March, a UK tour in April and July appearances at summer festivals including Secret Garden Party, SummerTyne and Cambridge Folk Fest Callaghan returns to the UK in October and November for appearances at the London Folk and Roots Festival and dates across England.
