Taking influences from The War On Drugs, Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes, indie-folk newcomer Callum Pitt combines finger-picked folk riffs with a stunning falsetto voice. Callum’s 2017 debut track “You’d Better Sell It While You Can” brought with it immediate industry attention, piqued by coverage from the likes of DIY, Fresh On The Net and Crack In The Road. Follow up tracks “Least He’s Happy” and “Rabbits” had more success still, landing on Spotify’s coveted ‘New Music Friday’ playlists across Europe and with the latter track receiving airplay from BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music. Callum also steadily built his live following throughout the year with support slots for Meadowlark, Dan Owen, Cape Cub, Isaac Gracie, The Pale White, as well as a slot at Selfridges Music Matters new music gig series with Mullally and Joy Crookes. This string of live shows culminated in his first headline show November, which sold out within two days, a full month ahead of the show. Following an impressive debut year, Callum Pitt is definitely one to watch closely in 2018.
“Callum Pitt… harnesses the lilting nature of Americana, producing some intricate guitar licks and roll-off-the-tongue lyrics that converge into a swelling chorus that sweeps you off your feet.” (DIY)
