BBC Radio 2 favourite Callaghan headlines Brighton show
Three-time BBC Radio 2 playlisted artist Callaghan celebrates the release her new EP Skin On Skin with one of her biggest UK tours to date, kicking off today (Tues 17 Apr).
Skin on Skin is one of three EPs that Callaghan recorded in Los Angeles over the course of a year. Shortly after the release, the UK singer will kick start her biggest UK tour in Liverpool on Tues 17 Apr. She will play a series of dates across the UK, including headlining Sage Gateshead, Oran Mor in Glasgow, Lincoln’s Drill Hall and coming to Brighton’s very own, Brighton Unitarian Church on Sat 21 Apr.
The 4 track EP features songs that capture both Callaghan’s unease that politics and technology are dividing us from one another, and her hope and conviction that love and the human spirit will overcome. Lead single Better Together is an uplifting, positive love song celebrating unity. Title track Skin onSkin suggests face-to-face contact rather than living life through a screen. Broken was written at theend of 2016 as a heartfelt reaction to UK and US politics and finally All Through The Night is a beautiful lullaby from a parent to a child.
The tour will give fans their first chance to hear the new songs live. Callaghan will also be performing tracks from The Other Side, her EP released in June, and songs from the final EP in the trilogy which will come out in the summer. And of course, they’ll also hear songs from her acclaimed album, A History ofNow, including the aforementionedBBC Radio 2play listed singles.
