ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Anyone who has ever sat in on a performance by Kristin Callahan will later describe the unexpected silence that falls over the building after the first couple lines in an attempt to communicate the authentic experience they had that night. They may also tell of the stunned delay in applause when the song was over. They may say that they forgot what they had been talking about, or that their drink was just as full when the song was over as it was when it began. But in the end, they'll probably tell you to just go see it for yourself. Because what they're trying to tell you is that Kristin Callahan has that rare ability to coax listeners into the anticipation of each note, to bring people into the very soul of music, that realm of musical experience that is ill-described in the past tense. Quiet and unassuming, Callahan has a stage presence that is both sweet and sexy, one that catches everyone off guard and then keeps them there until the very last note. From her shy smiles between songs to her flawless execution of some of the most demanding pieces, Kristin exudes the perfect combination of country charm and urbane hipness. She grew up in a small town in Western Maryland, where it became evident early on in her childhood that she was a vocal prodigy. With the encouragement of all those who recognized her talent, she began learning and singing gospel songs in her church and in talent shows across the region, regularly winning any competition she entered. As a promising eighteen-year-old, Kristin was awarded a scholarship to attend the Berklee College of Music summer program, where she began honing in on her style that today ranges from blues to R&B and Jazz. Her experiences there had a profound impact on her direction in life, confirming music and art as her passion. Kristin knew from her experience there that her life, in whatever way possible, would be dedicated to her gift. And so it has been since then. Today Callahan is fully focused on her art, and has recorded and performed with several accomplished musicians, including the well-known D.C pianist Vince Evans, who is featured on Kristin's album, "a new love". Some may already know of the authentic experience of music that attendees of Kristin's performances are trying to describe. They may think they've found it in other places. But there's something else hanging in the hushed tone of the crowd besides tranquility and awe. It's vibrant. It's exciting. It's knowing that you're witnessing enormous potential actualizing before your very eyes. It's sensing that Kristin Callahan is a name you will remember.

A New Love
Purchased Kristin Callahan's disc 'A New Love' after hearing her at Acoustic Thursdays, my weekly indie series in Baltimore. Her voice is beautiful and calming. Her approach to ballads is as perfect as I've heard. 'A New Love' is a perfectly executed collection of jazz standards. Her vocals & the piano arrangements, with just a hint of guitar and trumpet, are simply beautiful. A must have for the jazz collector. I was amazing to have heard her live in an intimate setting.
