Venture Proudly Presents: Her Name Is Calla

Celebrating over a decade together, Her name is Calla could

hardly be considered an overnight success. Always difficult

to pigeon hole, the band sit somewhere between light and

shade. Post-rock and folk. Heart break and apocalypse. This

difficulty to label has been a blessing and burden for the

band. On one hand struggling to be accepted into genres,

but on the other affording them a unique voice in the field.

Formed in 2004 by song-writer Tom Morris, Her Name

Is Calla play intense, emotional guitar-rock, categorised

by Morris’s haunting and distinctive vocals and the bands

remarkable use of dynamics and atmosphere which often

finds audiences silenced both its delicacy and brutality.

Since their debut album The Heritage, in 2008 Her Name

is Calla have endured a vigorous touring schedule which

has seen support grow to a now international fan-base.

The Quiet Lamb (2010) saw the band’s appeal and attention

grow through support from BBC Radio 1, 6 Music,

and Xfm amongst others. After a hiatus which would have

destroyed most bands (and people), 2014 saw the release of

their 3rd studio album, ‘Navigator’. The reflective and​ ​biographical album was well received and saw further touring

which has added to the insidious rise of Her name is Calla.

2015 saw the band celebrate a decade together with the film/

soundtrack A Wave Of Endorphins. 2016 + 17 saw a number

of festival appearances as well as contributions to Torch

Songs, the mens mental health charity, a 7” releases with the

lauded Leeds based singles club Come Play With Me, as well

as the release of a live album recorded at Handmade Festival.

Her Name is Calla return in 2018 with a wealth

of new material to be released as an EP in June

and an album in October on Function Records.
