Folk Rock Sensation from UK. - Callum Pitt: Away From The Rousing Parades

Callum Pitt often builds his songs out from a small, quickly-established melodic theme. For his new single Away From The Rousing Parades, I hear echoes of a Josh Ritter circa Animal Years, with a similar youthful vitality and nondepletable store of lyrical fire. He goes from an acoustic guitar intro that feels borrowed from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, to a final coda of big energy, stacked vocals, piano, and strings.

Customary to the writing style of Pitt seems to be a deft use of melody and dynamics to create narrative lifts, and drops: a moody series of peaks and valleys to carry the story forward. The lead vocal achieves a bright sense of optimism here and continues to build on a tuneful and bardic persona.

This song is currently featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
