Callum Pitt Coming To the Cuban Embassy
Saturday October 19th – 7pm to 11pm
Taking influences from The War On Drugs, Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes, indie-folk newcomer Callum Pitt combines finger-picked folk riffs with a stunning falsetto voice. His debut track, “You’d Better Sell It While You Can”, received airplay from BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, as well as gathering widespread blog coverage from the likes of Crack In The Road, DIY and The Tipping Point, resulting in a place on one of Spotify UK’s ‘Fresh Finds’ playlists, a slot at Evolution Emerging 2017, and tour support slots with Meadowlark, Cape Cub and Isaac Gracie. Follow up tracks ‘Least He’s Happy’ and ‘Rabbits’ received yet more coverage, making Spotify’s coveted “New Music Friday” playlist in a number of countries, and saw Callum receive his first BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music plays.
“Callum Pitt… harnesses the lilting nature of Americana, producing some intricate guitar licks and roll-off-the-tongue lyrics that converge into a swelling chorus that sweeps you off your feet.” (DIY)
“[A] brilliant introduction to a young talent with bags of potential, massive in scope and freely channelling the dreamy Americana of The War On Drugs and Bon Iver’s sparkling clean production in its rich ambient soundscapes… It’s an evolving piece of uplifting indie folk that eventually explodes into an anthemic payoff that’s worth the wait.” (God Is In The TV)
