The San Francisco-based Ghost Western duo, Callow, consists of Red Moses (lead vocals, guitar), and Sami Knowles (keys, percussion, vocals).

The two decided to combine their musical talents in 2009 after their gardening business went under during America's economic crash. They sold their belongings to live on the road, and they've never looked back. Red is a life-long musician who has been writing music and performing in bands for most of his life. Sami is a professional dancer who has translated her embodied sense of music in an unconventional way; she sings, plays the keys and drums simultaneously.

Their albums Orb Weaver (2012) and Blue Spells (2013) are elegantly dark and sonically searing collections of songs that create rock operatic overtures with shadowy vocals flowing over the memorable, echo-latent instrumentation. Callow is a chillingly talented duo who has committed their lives to creating music, and influencing audiences with their heavy and vivid art songs.
