Please introduce yourself in less than 10 words…..

Hello, I’ m your new favourite popstar 🙂

 

What has been the best gig you’ve ever played and why?

I headlined a summer festival at Liverpool’s Bombed Out Church and the crowd was ELECTRIC! So many friends, family and fans showed up and it confirmed that this was definitely what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

What was the last track you played on Spotify?

‘Lets all Chant’ by The Michael Zager Band. Such an infectious fun song, makes me feel like I’m a cult leader in the late 70s and trying to uplift everyone with this weird music. Definitely considering recording a cover at some point!

 

What would be on your rider?

Red Wine, Olives, Pistachio Nuts, a record deal, Gay rights, and the blood of a thousand
straight men.

What other talents do you have? 

Where do I begin?! I do a killer New York accent, I’m the only person I’d ever trust to give an accurate palm reading, I bleach and tone all my friends hair (weirdly well considering I’ve no training), I make a KILLA sangria, and I’m the best therapist you’ll ever have. Oh and I can also twist my arms and legs around and climb up walls…

 

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

I’d have much more diversity. There’s too many straight white men running the show and its disheartening to see. I’d love to have a wider representation, and I’d love to see more women running the show! Women are incredible and they’re absolutely not taken seriously enough in our industry. I work exclusively with women, queer people, and people of colour when I produce my music, make my videos, and come up with concepts, because nobody else seems to be doing it!

 

If you could open for any band act who would it be?

I’d love to open for Marina! I tried so hard on her last tour and ended up chatting to her manager about it but I just couldn’t get through in the end. I don’t think I was established enough back then but I’m definitely on my way to getting there! How amazing would it be to open for someone that has shaped your whole journey as a music artist? It would be such a full circle moment.

 

What’s in store for you when all this is over?

I’m going to begin working on my next EP! I've already got some exciting people involved, it’s going to be a Halloween themed Rock-Opera and it’s going to be INSANE!

 

Where can we find out more? 

My Instagram is @callumcrighton and I’m always updating my followers with weird little videos and stories. I also have merch coming soon for the EP! Keep an eye out for Tote bags, badges, and an electric purple cassette tape with a bonus track on it!

Talk us through the new track video 

The new EP has one long music video for all 4 of the songs. Lazer Police: The Musical; loosely tells the story of a boy in the 80’s that gets pulled into his television screen and is swept up in a whirlwind of madness! Expect glitter, fog, and even… murder!
