Her Name Is Calla on Wednesday 20th June 2018
Celebrating over a decade together, Her name is Calla could hardly be considered an overnight success. Always difficult to pigeon hole, the band sit somewhere between light and shade. Post-rock and folk. Heart break and apocalypse. This difficulty to label has been a blessing and burden for the band. On one hand struggling to be accepted into genres, but on the other affording them a unique voice in the field.
Formed in 2004 by song-writer Tom Morris, Her Name Is Calla play intense, emotional guitar-rock, categorised by Morris’s haunting and distinctive vocals and the bands remarkable use of dynamics and atmosphere which of- ten finds audiences silenced both its delicacy and brutality.
Since their debut album The Heritage, in 2008 Her Name is Calla have endured a vigorous touring schedule which has seen support grow to a now international fan-base. The Quiet Lamb (2010) saw the band’s appeal and atten- tion grow through support from BBC Radio 1, 6 Music and Xfm amongst others. After a hiatus which would have destroyed most bands (and people), 2014 saw the release of their 3rd studio album, ‘Navigator’. The reflective and bi- ographical album was well received and saw further touring which has added to the insidious rise of Her name is Calla.
2015 saw the band celebrate a decade together with the film/ soundtrack A Wave Of Endorphins. 2016 + 17 saw a num- ber of festival appearances as well as contributions to Torch Songs, the mens mental health charity, a 7” releases with the lauded Leeds based singles club Come Play With Me, as well as the release of a live album recorded at Handmade Festival.
Her Name is Calla return in 2018 with a wealth of new material to be released as an EP in June and an album in October on Function Records.
