Callum Stewart has unveiled the video for his new single ‘The Dam’, out now through Hope & Fury Records. ”
The video follows a couple’s beautiful love story, capturing its stunning highs and lows, soundtracked by the pristine alt-pop and voice of the Northern Irish singer.
Co-written with Jez Ashurst (Gabrielle Aplin, Lawson) and Emma Rohan (James Arthur, Little Mix), ‘The Dam’ follows the breakout success of his single ‘Parachute’ last year, which has clocked up over half a MILLION plays on Spotify.
Regarding ‘The Dam’ and its video, Callum says, “I wanted to convey the desperation in the song visually, representing the optimism and promise in the lyrics. ‘The Dam’ is a song about holding on in the midst of chaos, a song of restoration and hope. Two amazing actors and an incredible team helped bring the video to life, and I hope people love it as much as I do.”
Raised on the North coast of Ireland, Callum picked up a guitar at the age of 12 and within a year was writing his own songs. Now he has blossomed from a bedroom singer/songwriter into one of the hottest voices coming from Ireland today. He’s been tipped as a ‘One To Watch’ for 2017 by Hot Press and made the playlists of Irish radio across the country.
Callum has been announced as support for X&Y at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on March 21st, and will also play in support of Leah McFall at Brighton’s Komedia on April 16th and Seafret on May 2nd at Bush Hall, London.
