After hit performances at the last two 30A Songwriter’s Festivals Callaghan brings her beautiful voice and songs to the Seaside Rep!
Callaghan’s debut album, Life in Full Colour, released on May 1st 2012. The release is the culmination of a journey which brought the singer-songwriter across the Atlantic from London to live and record in the USA.
A long-time Shawn Mullins fan, Callaghan contacted the Atlanta singer-songwriter through MySpace, and after being knocked out by her music he agreed to a rare collaboration. Callaghan left her London digs and boarded a plane headed for the American South: the experience was the inspiration for the opening track and first single from her album, Best Year.
Life in Full Colour was tracked in and around Atlanta with Mullins both producing and playing on the record. Its 12 songs present the singer’s eclectic and dynamic style, combining shades of folk, country, rock and pop into a seamless fusion of feeling and melody.
Performing live Callaghan plays piano and guitar and delivers a vocal which earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan and Emmy Lou Harris. Her songs chronicle stories and moments from her own life and from others. You’ll enjoy thoughtful lyrics, haunting vocals, and catchy melodies which make you smile.
Since making Georgia her home, Callaghan has been selling out shows at local venues like Eddie’s Attic and The Crimson Moon. She’s also been on the road performing in over 30 states.
2012 is off to a flying start with Best Year released to radio and already enjoying air play in St Louis, Boston, Portland, Jackson Hole, Knoxville, New Jersey and more, a tour across the eastern USA and a showcase at SXSW in Texas
