If you asked the 25 year-old singer-songwriter what kind of genre he plays, he’d reply with a simple response; “I just play music.”
And quite frankly, that’s the truth.
That question used to be easier for Hunter to answer. He used to just be a blues guitarist. However, at the age of 17, he began writing his own music and developing his own voice as a singer. After a few years of cutting his teeth in the Atlanta market and becoming a sold out headliner at famed venues such as Eddie’s Attic, Hunter found himself in Nashville recording his first full length effort, “Broken Heart’s & Melodies” (produced by Dana C. Lamb with John Bass) combined folk songwriting sensibilities with blues guitar playing and hints of pop and all by his 21st birthday.
The independent release proved to be a pivotal stepping stone, catching the attention of Atlanta-based producer Dan Hannon (Aaron Shust, Manchester Orchestra) and nationally recognized, Grammy-Nominated Producer “Mama” Jan Smith (Usher, Justin Bieber, The Band Perry, and more). With Hunter continuing his development with Mama Jan, he continued to carve his place in the Atlanta songwriter scene becoming a staple at the city’s songwriting hubs. With a new EP in the works, produced by both Hannon and Mama Jan, the story of Hunter Callahan’s music is just beginning.
Atlanta singer-songrwriter, Hannah Murphy brings an old soulful-folk vibe to the stage. Born and raised in Albany, Georgia, and inspired by the sounds of Alison Krauss, James taylor, and Joni Mitchell, small-town blues and Fleetwood Mac-era classics helped this young performer transcend into a powerhouse songwriter with an energy that extends well beyond her years. Since stepping onto the road of musical-righteousness at 13, she has since Performed in several famous venues such as Nashville's, Blue Bird cafe, The Masquerade in Atlanta and is the most recent winner of Eddie's Attic's Bi-annual Songwriting shootout competition.
The young artist is currently striving to re-release and self-produce music that she has written in the past along with new story-rich tunes that show her growth as a songwriter and performer.
