SAT 13 APRIL | LA BELLE ANGELE
FESTIVAL TAKEOVER: KELBURN GARDEN PARTY
After walking away from a promising career as a professional footballer, Dunbar born Callum took up the piano at the relatively late age of 21 and is entirely self-taught from scratch as a musician – “I didn’t even understand how to ‘count in’ for a good few years,” he admits. After cutting his teeth playing with Owen Morris-produced indie-rock band The Stagger Rats for a number of years until 2013, he subsequently began experimenting with solo writing and performing before going on to release two mini-albums under his own name – 2016’s Get Don’t Want and 2017’s Delete Forever, both via Soul Punk Records, which is run by Young Fathers’ former producer/manager Tim Brinkhurst (AKA Tim London). Callum has earned critical acclaim from titles including The Scotsman, The Skinny, Clash and The Herald – who named ‘Back Beat’ one of the 100 best songs from Scotland in 2018.
