Northern Irish singer Callum Stewart has today released his brand new single ‘The Dam’ through Hope & Fury Records. The song is a gleaming slice of pristine, love-fuelled alt-pop, with Callum’s aching melodies cutting through with a voice well beyond his 19 years.
Co-written with Jez Ashurst (Gabrielle Aplin, Lawson) and Emma Rohan (James Arthur, Little Mix), ‘The Dam’ follows the breakout success of his single ‘Parachute’ last year, which has clocked up over half a MILLION plays on Spotify.
Regarding the new single Callum says, “‘The Dam’ is a song about holding on in the midst of chaos, a song of restoration and hope. It was simmering in me for months before it made it to the page and finally to the studio. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
Raised on the north coast of Ireland, Callum picked up a guitar at the age of 12 and within a year was writing his own songs. Now, just ahead of his twenties, Callum Stewart has blossomed from a bedroom singer/songwriter into one of the hottest voices coming from Ireland today. He’s been tipped as a ‘One To Watch’ for 2017 by Hot Press and made the playlists of Irish radio across the country.
Callum will be celebrating the release of his new single with a headline show at Servant Jazz Quarters, London on Feb 22nd as he gears up to expand his reach even further with the ‘The Dam’. Tickets are available now via Fatsoma.
