Callista Clark is one of the brightest stars shining out in Nashville right now. At only 18 years old her voice is as powerful as label mate’s Carly Pearce, she can play an array of instruments and is writing with some of the best writers in music city.
Her first offering introduces us to the young firecracker, who has a lot to say for someone so young. From the heartbreak of ‘Don’t Need It Anymore’ to the attitude and sassiness of ‘Change My Mind’ the emotion in her voice is audible and believable as she delivers every word with power and gusto. The stand out track is single, ‘It’s Cause I Am’, the foot-tapping production frames her voice well, the bass line and drums driving it along. Her falsetto at the end of each line in the chorus adds a new dimension and is a hook in itself.
Overall, it’s a brilliant start to life as a country singer, she has the real makings of a future star. Her vocals are to be marvelled at and the partnership of Clark and producer Nathan Chapman is a match made in musical heaven. On the whole, it’s a catchy and fun collection with some real gems amongst the lyrics. I look forward to hearing more.
