Shows have also just been added in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin for November and December with more dates being announced all the time.

Thanks again for your support!
‘Who Would I Be’ is the first song I recorded for my new studio album. It’s a song about the people, places and values that make you who you are. This black and white video was recorded in a derelict pipe factory in Nashville. It features just a few of the people and places who have made me who I am. See if you can spot them!
If you like it I would love you to share it on Facebook or Twitter and help me spread the word!
In May and June Callaghan has partnered with Pledge Music to offer all kinds of opportunities for you to become part of making her second album.
The first three songs for the album have already been recorded in Music City. Anyone who pledges can download the first track ‘Who Would I Be’ right away. Pledgers will also have access to new music every month for the rest of the year!
You can support in all kinds of way from simply pre-ordering the album, to having Callaghan write a song just for you.
Every pledger will also get a download of the album before it’s available anywhere else and you’ll get regular exclusive updates about how the record is progressing and what Callaghan’s up to.
So that’s new music each month and a new record by Christmas! Callaghan would love you to join her to make this record. To find out more please visit Callaghan’s PledgeMusic Page

"A 12-track set infused with folk, pop, rock and country influences and, above all, immediate hooks"
"She's one of those performers whose genuine sweetness is transparent in her voice and it shines through her writing...Life in Full Colour is joyful listening"
- Huffington Post
“There are some voices that are capable of transporting listeners to another place and Callaghan’s effortless, sweet sounding, lilting, silvery vocals take you to a sun-drenched private beach with a warm breeze where worries are a thing of the past.”
- PA Music Scene
"Life In Full Colour by Callaghan proves that this Brit has been listening to her Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt and Sheryl Crow records. ...Girl can write. Girl can sing. Girl can play piano. Girl has captured my heart. Callaghan, oh Callaghan, sing me back home"
- Aquarian Weekly
"...clean, clear pop that, if you listen closely, you can detect hints of country in there somewhere. Callaghan, who has lived in Atlanta the last few years, has a bright, beautiful voice, and her songwriting is solid"
- Aspen Times
"Callaghan shines brightly throughout her songs about love, despair, longing and loss. Her impressive vocal range provides endless emotional resonance to the melodic songs tinged with a little folk, a little pop and a little country"
- Entertainment Realm
"Blessed with a beautifully sweet and soothing voice, a strong knack for pretty and harmonic melodies, and a firm grasp of smart and thoughtful songwriting, UK-bred singer/songwriter Callaghan comes through with a terrifically radiant and engaging winner on her sunny and appealing country pop debut album. ...a lovely warmth and purity of spirit shines throughout. A wonderful album"
- Jersey Beat
"Callaghan’s gorgeous voice is unmistakably her own, but has been compared to other songstresses, the likes of Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones – with her eclectic Americana/Pop sound, she stands out as a gem in the rough. ...Callaghan’s songs pull at the listener’s heartstrings as she opens herself up and shares with her audience love, loss, heartbreak and everything in between – she truly is a talented performer, who is also grounded in the moment"
