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.
