Raised on the North Coast of Ireland, singer/songwriter Callum Stewart picked up a guitar at the age of 12, and within a year was writing his own songs. He started his musical career playing in bands throughout high school, taking any chance to perform that he could. He soon caught the attention of Irish based, US producer, Tre Sheppard, who began writing and recording with Callum during school holidays. Callum released his first single ‘Free’ only a year later, gaining notable interest within the music industry, including a feature on The Unsigned Guide’s “Ones To Watch” blog.
Now 19 years old, Callum has an affinity for the craft of songwriting and musicianship far beyond his years, making him one of the most promising young artists in Ireland. With swelling arrangements and heart stopping melodies, Stewart creates climactic, alt-pop marked by real emotion and raw passion.
Since the release of his second single ‘Gold’, on OLD FANG, Callum has sung with Nile Rodgers and Rudimental on the remix of the classic Chic song ‘Le Freak’, and has been writing with some of the UK’s best songwriters, as well as performing at the famous Metropolis Studios in London. His newest single ‘Parachute,’ co-written with Jimbo Barry (The Script), Andrew Jackson (Bastille & Lana Del Ray) and Tre Sheppard is available now via Hope & Fury Records. Parachute’s aching melody and soaring chorus underscore the darker themes of loss and heartbreak; a soundtrack for coming of age, an anthem for a journey well travelled, but somehow only just begun.
