ABOUT KING CALAWAY:
Six unique voices. Six top-notch instrumentalists. Three different
countries. Featuring a half dozen musicians from both sides of the
Atlantic, King Calaway is proof that there’s strength in
numbers. Hailing from across the globe — from the small towns of the
American Midwest to the small coastal country of Gibraltar; from the
Atlantic seaboard to the Central Belt of Scotland — King Calaway brings a
worldly perspective. They’re country stars for a new generation,
singing songs that erase the boundaries between genres and countries.
Comprised of bandmates Caleb Miller, Chris Deaton, Simon Dumas, Jordan Harvey, Chad Michael Jervis, and Austin Luther,
King Calaway isn’t looking to blend into the crowd. They’re not even
looking to fit in. They’re in the business of standing out…and King
Calaway stands tall.
