Chase away any post holiday-blues and join CALLAGHAN for her annual Birthday Show here at Eddie’s Attic! Since she kicked off 2012 with us Callaghan’s released her debut album, performed across 25 states, heard her single ‘Best Year’ on Radio across the USA and been reported on by Billboard, the Huffington Post and many more. On the first Saturday of 2013 she returns to Eddie’s Attic for a birthday show of great live music!
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 Callaghan’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 playing sell out shows at local venues and in summer 2012 Insite Atlanta’s music edition labelled her ‘Atlanta’s hottest new act’ .
Life in Full Colour 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”
