Callum is a guitarist/pianist jazz student based in Christchurch. He has been heavily influenced but not limited by classic rock/prog and is currently experimenting with creating new sounds and compositions.
Callum is also currently part of a ceilidh band, The Rice Paddies and will be playing at various community events.
Callum was brought up with a classic rock oriented musical family in England, meaning all of his first musical influences were from the legends; The Who, Deep purple, Pink Floyd and of course Jimi Hendrix.
He started learning the piano at the age of 6, but a couple of years later was awestruck by the inspiring playing of Jimi Hendrix. This led him to pick up his first guitar.
Callum has now broadened his musical taste and has developed a love for jazz on which he has started perusing at Ara’s Jazz School.
After playing in various small jazz bands around the pubs in Christchurch he has recently joined ceilidh band; The Rice Paddies and will be playing at various community events.
