Callaghan – “When You Loved Me” – Live in America

My new album “Callaghan Live in America” is coming out very soon – on July 1st. I can’t wait!

This song, “When You Loved Me”, is one I wrote recently with amazing writer and friend of mine, Angela Kaset.

Side A of the record is Live on Stage with a full band. Side B is a live acoustic session recorded at Quad Studios Nashville.

‘When You Loved Me’ is from the acoustic session. The idea for the song came from a conversation with a friend who is in her 80s. We were talking about her first love in New York City when she was a teenager and how she had always wondered what had happened to him and how things might have worked out if they had met at a different time in their lives. It’s funny how memories of that first significant love stay with you even though you go on to have other wonderful relationships. I guess these days you can check out that first love on Facebook!

But there’s something special about the way things used to work in the days before social media when that first special person could leave you with memories that last a lifetime.

Feel free to share this song with anyone you think might enjoy it.

Have a great weekend everyone!

A week in the life of a top British Film Photographer (who’s also my big sister!)

There are many places to draw inspiration in life. One of them for me is my big sister.

Like me, she took the plunge of leaving a life with a regular pay check behind to follow her dreams.

Quitting her job as a lawyer in London, she decided to make a career out of one of her biggest passions – film photography.

It has been amazing over the last few years to see the stunning images she has captured, and to see her become more established in the industry.

This is a short film she created using Premier Pro to capture a week in the life of a film photographer. It doubly amazes me that she has made this momentous career move whilst also having a baby. My nephew Noah is now 2 and features a lot in the video, partly just because he’s such a cute model (not a biased auntie talking I promise!)

I’m just getting into the world of making mini videos. The one I made from my time on music cruise Cayamo was done on iMovie (http://youtu.be/RE7Z5AVFbxU) and I’ve also heard of a program called “Vine” that takes 3 seconds video clips that can be edited into something cool.

I’m looking forward to doing some more experimenting!

If anyone has any other cool programs you like to use for this kind of thing, I’d love to hear about them!
