Independent singer-songwriter Callaghan, who moved from London to America in the summer of 2010, will be the first to appear in the Songbook Series “Discover” on February 1 in the Spirit Mountain Event Center. Callaghan plays piano and guitar, and delivers a stunning 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.
A long-time Shawn Mullins fan, Callaghan contacted the Atlanta grammy-nominated artist 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 from her album, Best Year.
Mullins went on to produce Callaghan's debut album, Life in Full Colour, which released in spring 2012 to rave reviews. Now establishing herself as a national touring artist, Callaghan will be bringing her full band to Spirit Mountain for the show on February 1st.
