After four years in America, a British-born singer-songwriter has returned home for a full UK tour – including a show in Sheffield.

Georgina Callaghan – who performs as Callaghan – is hitting the road on Saturday to promote her new album A History of Now, which has been two years in the making ahead of its release on Monday.

Callaghan says: “I want people to connect my lyrics to their own lives and hope these songs stir different emotions, make you think, but also make you sing, smile and tap your feet.

“The album was recorded in Nashville, with some of Music City’s best players.

“Producer Dennis Matkosky and engineer/mixer David Leonard are experts in their fields.

“Collaborating with people of that calibre challenges and inspires you to make the best record you can.”

It is her first attempt to break her home market since she departed for the US in 2010 and the tour includes a show at The Rocking Chair, in Sheffield city centre, on Tuesday, April 21.

Callaghan says: “I always had it in my mind I would come back to the UK.

“I wanted to get a good foundation built in the US so I had time to focus properly on touring in the UK.

“I’m so excited to finally be sharing my music with people back home.”
