Premiere: Callum Stewart – Gold


We’re pleased to premiere the latest video by hands down one of the most promising pop singer-songwriters in the country at the minute,  Callum Stewart.

Released via OLD FANG, ‘Gold’ is a stripped-back, piano-led distillation of the hotly-tipped songsmith’s craft. Where strings and percussion very nicely lend to the song’s allure – name its impassioned climax – Stewart’s vocals are, without a shadow of a doubt, the focal point here. Familiar without sounding commonplace, earnest without veering soppiness, it sets the young artist apart from many of his peers – and several of his contemporaries.

Supported by Jamie Neish, Stewart places the latest OLD FANG showcase at Belfast’s Menagerie tonight, Thursday, November 20. Go here to buy tickets and here for the show’s Facebook event page.
