If you listen closely, you can hear a heartbeat in the songs of Erick Baker. A warm familiar pulse of love and loss echoing from somewhere just under the surface. Written with unguarded lyrical honesty, Erick's songs are passionate confessions that reflect many of our own deeply rooted emotions and secrets.
"Breathtaking...absolutely incredible" is how BBC London's Gaby Roslin described a recent live performance by Callaghan.
Originally from the UK Callaghan moved to the USA in summer 2010 to record and tour with Grammy-Nominee Shawn Mullins and has been playing live and building her audience ever since.
Playing piano and guitar she 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. She left her London digs and boarded a plane headed for the American South. Life in Full Colour was tracked in and around Atlanta and released in summer 2012 to a great reaction. The Huffington Post described it as “joyful listening”, while InLiveMusic says “Callaghan’s voice is stunning, clear and perfect for the story telling of her songs”
Since then Callaghan has been on the road touring with artists including Shawn Mullins, Ed Kowalczyk, Matthew Perryman-Jones and headlining her own shows across the USA.
Her latest album A History of Now was entirely fan funded via Pledge Music and produced in Nashville by Dennis Matkosky. Since its release in April 2015 it has been earning praise on both sides of the pond. In the UK BBC Radio 2 have playlisted her singles Best Year 2015 and We Don't Have to Change The World and Sirius XM's Coffee House have recorded her live in session. In the US Creative Loafing Atlanta calls the record "tunes to make even the most jaded pop fan grin" and reviewing her live show No Depression said "her extraordinary voice truly sets the music apart...nothing short of stunning".
