‘The Dam’ premiered with Clash who called him an, “Irish newcomer set to soar… New single ‘The Dam’ is incoming, and it’s a mature, reflective work, with melancholic ache that lingers long after the final notes. Softly constructed, it rises and falls with a supple sense of grace.”
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.
