UK based singer, Callaghan, plays The Melting Point in Athens

Athens - (submitted by Emma at The Press House)  Callaghan’s show at the Melting Point is a special trio show with Athens’ own Tom ‘Panda’ Ryan and Patrick Blanchard. Panda and Patrick are regular players with Shawn Mullins and played on Callaghan’s debut album.

In the Summer of 2010 British singer-songwriter Callaghan packed up her life in London and moved to Atlanta to work with one of her musical heroes - Grammy Nominee Shawn Mullins.

Performing on piano and guitar, Callaghan combines sounds from Americana, Folk and Pop. and a voice which earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones.

Her songs chronicle stories and moments from her own life and from others she knows or imagines. You’ll recognise times you have experienced in her thoughtful lyrics and haunting vocals, and her catchy melodies will have you tapping your feet and singing along.

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 opening Shawn’s tour across the USA and performing in more than 25 states.

Her debut album ‘Life in Full Colour’ is now on limited release to show audiences and will get it’s full release in Spring 2012.

The record kicks off with ‘Best Year’, an upbeat, optimistic song about her decision to take a chance and move to America. For a free download of ‘Best Year’ and to see the video which shows Callaghan on tour across the USA please visit www.callaghansongs.com more >>>
