When the deep chill of winter settles in completely, I find myself drawn to spare, beautiful music that requires dedicated time for listening. Callahan’s delicate acoustic songs are perfect for time spent in your own version of frozen tundra. Callahan is the alter ego of Michigan native Malcolm Cumming, who manages to bring the quiet moments of deep winter contentment to life. The track “Ril” demonstrates Callahan’s talents nicely and will serve to whet the appetite of fans until a full release arrives. When you have a quiet moment, spend it with Callahan and see what happens.
