The previous year was exceptional for Scottish multi–instrumentalist Callum Beattie; he supported Razorlight on their huge U.K. tour and supported The Kooks on their headline European tour, along with Blossoms. Last summer he performed at BST Hyde Park (Robbie Williams), performed sold–out headline shows and played at various locations during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He earned accolades from BBC Radio 2, The Telegraph, Buzzfeed U.K., The Independent, Clash Magazine and many more, as well as global radio support from the multi–continental syndicated radio program Passport Approved. Less than two weeks ago, Callum unleashed his long–awaited debut album, People Like Us (3Beat/Universal), the self–written album which includes songs of his life, both his childhood ups and downs and his more recent upheavals. The album is a collection of songs clawed from the raw stuff of existence, nostalgic patriotism and bleeding love.
