Discovery: Calum Pitt

Away From The Rousing Parades is the 5th single from Newcastle-based folk-pop artist Callum Pitt, and it certainly stirs the heart!

By Jane Howkins

This is folk at it’s best, mixing together elements of the traditional British style with americana, making something wonderful in the middle. Pitt’s soaring vocals are evocative, and his acoustic finger plucking works well alongside them, slowly building into a rapid crescendo in the middle.
