At just 24, Calum Graham has released five acclaimed albums, won major national
music competitions, performed at the Olympic Games in both Vancouver and London,
racked up some phenomenal views on YouTube, and was most recently named one of
the top 30 guitarists in the world under 30 by Acoustic Guitar Magazine. Andy McKee,
one of today’s most popular acoustic guitarists, calls Calum “the most promising young
guitarist I’ve seen. His command of the guitar is already really impressive!”
In 2011, Graham won the Canada’s Walk of Fame nationwide “A Song For Canada”
contest based on his poetic acuteness. His winning poem was used in the song “I’m
Here, (A Song For Canada)”. The song was performed by Chantal Kreviazuk and co-
written by Graham, Raine Maida (Our Lady Peace) and Stephen Moccio (“I Believe”,
2010 Vancouver Olympics theme song/”Wrecking Ball” – Miley Cyrus)”.
“Calum’s entry resonated strongly among the judges. His poem celebrates the cultural
mosaic that is Canada. He has captured the diversity of this country – something that
we as a nation are renowned for and proud of.” – Stephan Moccio
Graham’s recently released fifth studio album 'Tabula Rasa' adds an extra dimension to
his compositions, introducing Graham’s soulful vocals to his audience for the first time.
The album features a combination of his exemplary instrumental guitar work punctuated
throughout with elements of folk, blues, and pop in his vocal songs with guest
performances by Antoine Dufour and Bass Guitar Extraordinnaire, Michael Manring.
