Callum Gentleman plays blues/folk noir with the odd dash of country. It is Nick Cave meets The Smiths in a dark alley where they conspire to kidnap Bob Dylan and move to New Zealand. It is Tom Waits sharing a bottle of moonshine with Leonard Cohen at 4 am.
He is a trouper, raconteur, impresario, chancer, and murder ballad lover. But above all, Callum Gentleman is a storyteller. These stories come out as songs, poems, campfire yarns, whiskey-soaked bar banter. Stories about good people doing bad things, and bad people who try hard to be good ... but often fail. Stories of fallen angels staring to heaven, contrite demons yearning for redemption, down-and-out junkies scrounging for a dollar, the devil gets it on with the wrong hooker.
Stories told in a child's whisper, a father's tears, and a drunken man's roar.
He has played gigs with artists such as Tiny Ruins, Great North, Bond Street Bridge, Delaney Davidson, Tami Neilson, Reb Fountain, Heart Attack Alley, Marlon Williams, Will Wood, and The Eastern. Debut EP available on Bandcamp Friday, April 15th.
