". . . GUITAR PICKING REMINISCENT OF FOLK LEGEND NICK DRAKE . . . ITS HARD TO COMPARE MCCALLUM TO OTHERS, OR TO PIN DOWN HIS INFLUENCES. HE HARNESSES THE MELODIC POWER OF HARMONICA LIKE NEIL YOUNG, AND EXPLODES INTO CAREFUL CRESCENDOS WITH UNDERSTATED BEAUTY LIKE BILL CALLAHAN." – JONNY BOLDUC, EAST COAST POST
I am going to be back in the studio in just a matter of weeks with an album’s worth of new songs, and some old (like my song Beautiful Land of Ontario).
I received a Toronto Arts Council Grant, which is making this project possible, but in order to make this album everything that it can be, I need to raise a bit more. I have a campaign on Indiegogo to support the project and there is a matched donation that will make all small donations go even further. If you happen to be so inclined, you can support the project by following the link below. Thank you for all the support over the years, I’m really looking forward to sharing the finished project with you.
This spring I am giving a series of short, free livestreams, themed on the “Early Spring”. Join me on April 27th and May 4th at 7pm EST. To RSVP and receive email reminders about the shows, click the links below!
The wait is finally over! You can now stream all of “Many A Long Hour” on Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube Music and wherever else you stream. You can now add my songs to a playlist for any mood! You can also use them for background music on your Instagram and TikTok videos. Ditto for “Carol of the Birds.” They’re here for you, have fun.
Everything will continue to be available on Bandcamp for digital and physical purchase. You can also follow me on Bandcamp to be the first in the know about any future releases. Thanks for listening!
I am grateful and excited to announce that I have been awarded a Toronto Arts Council Grant to create my next album!!!
Those of you who enjoyed “Many A Long Hour” can look forward to a bigger, more ambitious project. If you’ve been to any of my shows recently, you’ve already had a preview of what is to come! Much more news on this to follow!
PS: I’ll be playing a song or to from this future project on my Christmas Special Tour 2021. You can find the link to tickets in the “Shows” tab.
