About me
Sligo-born, now Dublin-based artist Callum Wall kicked off his career in April of 2021 with his hit, cult classic ep Livin’ In Limbo. The three-song EP has amassed over 40,000 streams to date with no help from a label, management, or even Spotify playlisting. A project that found its success by word of mouth, and a loyal fanbase that is still streaming these songs nearly three years later.“Limbo” captures a relatable feeling quite poignantly, alongside a stellar production and melodic showing. - Obscure Sound
Since this project, Wall has kept himself busy in the bustling scene releasing several singles of his own, most notably collaborations with musicians from all sorts of unsuspecting genres. For instance, his collaboration with Skull the Pieree and fortune Igubor made the front page of Nialler9's "15 new Irish songs you should hear this week".

Gigs and shows
Wall put in the gride over the past two years Giging all around Ireland. Wall sold out his first headline in the workman's club in early 2022. After this gig, the floodgates opened. it started a streak of wall playing in almost every venue in Dublin. accepting most opportunities that came his way it wasn't a rare occasion that Wall would be playing up to three or four gigs a week.
Though this time was valuable, in 2023 Wall decided to be more selective with his gigs, this chapter of Wall's gigging career was focused on conquering the rest of Ireland. In 2023 came Wall's first Irish tour with dates in Andersons Sligo, the loft in Galway, Cyprus Avenue, and De Barras in Cork, Wall also took part in Whelan's Ones To Watch festival.

The music
Wall's influences spread far and wide. His roots and songwriting are inspired by the great “Americana” musicians of the 70s. This contrasts with influences from modern alternative artists like King Krule, plums, Banes World, and Mac Demarco.
‘There is something so real about the DIY production of the “Bedroom Pop, DIY” artist. It's hard to explain but from the Ververby guitars to the Lofi drum sounds, all this feels so much more relatable and authentic. You can hear it one, or Just a few artists in a room piecing their art together with the resources they have. What I want to present to the world with my music is this authentic-sounding instrumentation and production style mixed with the great melodies and storytelling of the late 60s and 70s.”

More than music
It's clear Wall has a very supportive fanbase that stretches further than just streaming his music. Part of Wall's artistic identity is to make artwork, and in 2022 wall created t-shirts for his upcoming release Bloodmoon. These t-shirts comprised of a graphic with no further “Callum Wall’ branding. It is important to Wall that his creations aren't “cringe” so he made sure he skewed away from the stereotypical big font “Callum Wall” branding”. these ringer tees sold out in the first week of production. For every release, Wall has a graphic attached to the album cover. In 2021 walls Living In Limbo” graphics were created into stickers. These stickers sold out too. One fan identified with walls one of Wall's graphics so much that they even got a tattoo of it on their arm.
