‘Callum Pickard & The Third Look’ is the creation of 21 year old singer-songwriter Callum Pickard – a self-taught multi-instrumentalist and profound son of Coventry who is flourishing in the embers of a once integral music scene. After acquiring a band of very close friends, luminous shows including support slots for Kurt Vile’s guitarist Steve Gunn,‘Boogarins’,’Ryley Walker’, Devon Sproule’,‘Eliza and The Bear’,‘Sun Club’,’Love Revisited’, ’Andy Shauf’ and‘Quilt’ have seen the young group rise to their peers with confidence and impress crowds around the UK.
Callum is heavily influenced by prolific songwriters such as Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Adam Granduciel (The War On Drugs) and Kevin Parker (Tame Impala). His new single ‘June’ – available to stream below – features french horns by Sufjan Stevens player CJ Camerieri (he’s also played with/for Bon Iver, The Staves and Paul Simon over the years)
The Third Look, Callum’s backing band now consists of six excellent multi instrumentalists: Daniel Murtagh (Lead Guitar), Laurence Pettite (Synths, Acoustic Guitar, Backing vocals), Daniel Duveen (Keyboards, Drums), Mike Webb (Bass), Christopher Lings (Drums) and Jonathan Pudge (Brass).
