Bio

After touring and performing successfully behind his previous two EPs (Tomorrows Sun 2016 & Listen 2019) Callum is showing his maturity as an artist with this new 2020 release, ready to widen his audience taking this record to the masses.

Written over several years and recorded over 12 months, Callum Wylie’s debut album spans a multitude of emotions, taking the listener in further with each track. The bedrock of the record was conceived on a formative trip to the United States in 2016 taking Wylie from Seattle to LA, to the middle of the desert in Marfa, TX and finally ending with 10 days holed up in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

As the songs began to take shape over the years producer, engineer and collaborator of Callums, Andrew Beck saw a vision for a full band backing the songs akin to the music of Wylie’s Americana contemporaries such as Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell. The record is a mixture of live to tape recordings at Sydney's Golden Retriever Studios and over dubs at Beck's Riversong Studios on The NSW Central Coast. The album is equal parts warm and gritty. No stone was left unturned and as a result,

Callum Wylie's debut is the best representation of him as an artist yet, powerful, honest and introspective.

New single "Storm's Coming" is out now!

Fans of Josh Pyke with a penchant for pedal steel are gonna be real happy to wrap their ears around this track.

A classic songwriter feel to this one from Callum with the voice to back it up.
