Signing a record deal with the father of grammy award winner Colbie Caillat, getting songs featured in hit TV shows and writing songs for Bob Seger and Jojo, it seemed like it was written in the stars for Callaghan Belle. The Detroit born singer today has released her debut as an independent artist and she recorded the track in her basement, classic DIY style there.
Her single Dear Detroit is a love letter to her home town whilst also dealing with the prospect of moving to a new city, in this case Los Angeles. This subject is one that everyone has experienced at some point in their lives and throughout the track Belle points out the differences between the two cities and how she misses her old home with her reminiscing about all the little things that made it so special to her. The husky vocal of Belle delivers the honest lyrics effortlessly, particularly the chorus, “Some fools call it paradise / And I thought I’d write to tell you / Dear Detroit.” Combine all of this with a somber production reminiscent of early 90’s pop and you’ve got a fascinating debut.
The honest nature of this Dear Detroit is something people are going to relate to and Callaghan Belle’s debut shows a lot of promise. Be sure to keep an eye out for Detroit’s hottest music star.
