This event is all ages
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.
Watching her show you’ll enjoy thoughtful lyrics, haunting vocals, and catchy melodies. Callaghan’s debut album, Life In Full Colour, released in spring 2012. The release was 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 combine shades of folk, country, rock and pop into a fusion of
feeling and melody.
Her debut has been getting a great reaction. The Huffington Post describes the album as “joyful listening”, while InLiveMusic says “Callaghan’s voice is stunning, clear and is perfect for the story telling of her songs” In Summer 2013 Callaghan released her live album ‘Callaghan Live in America’ to coincide with a coast - to - coast tour. To enjoy a taste of Callaghan’s music please download her free six song EP ’40 States and Counting’ which draws songs from both her live and studio albums:
“Callaghan’s effortless, lilting, silvery vocals take you to a sundrenched private beach where worries are a thing of the past.”
