Originally from the UK Callaghan moved to the USA in summer 2010 to record and tour with Grammy-Nominee Shawn Mullins and has been playing live and building her audience ever since.
Callaghan plays piano and guitar and delivers a stunning vocal which earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan and Emmy Lou Harris. Her songwriting chronicles the stories, experiences and emotions which are part of everyone’s lives. No Depression recently reviewed her live show as "nothing short of stunning".
A long-time Shawn Mullins fan, she contacted the Atlanta singer-songwriter through MySpace and, after being knocked out by her music, he agreed to produce her debut album. She left her London digs and boarded a plane headed for the American South. Life in Full Colour was tracked in and around Atlanta and released in summer 2012 to a great reaction. The Huffington Post described it as “joyful listening”, while InLiveMusic says “Callaghan’s voice is stunning, clear and perfect for the story telling of her songs”
Since then Callaghan has been on the road touring with artists including Shawn Mullins, Ed Kowalczyk, Matthew Perryman-Jones and more. She’s now headlining shows across the USA and UK.
Callaghan’s second studio album A History of Now was produced in Nashville by Dennis Matkosky. The record showcases Callaghan’s gift for melody and impactful songwriting in a collection which ranges from uplifting, exuberant anthems to poignant, mesmerizing ballads. Since its release in April 2015 it has been earning praise on both sides of the pond.
In The UK BBC Radio 2 have playlisted three singles from the album and BBC Radio London's Gabby Roslin described Callaghan's in studio performance as "breathtaking...absolutely incredible, every hair on my body is standing up" In the US Creative Loafing Atlanta calls the record "tunes to make even the most jaded pop fan grin”.
In summer 2016 Callaghn released her latest live record Callaghan’s Acoustic Coffee House.
