Young singer/songwriter headlines Puckett’s this Friday
Callie Hopper hails from Columbia, Tennessee, and is another example of the young talent blossoming in the Tennessee singer/songwriter music scene. Hopper got her musical beginnings early, playing the violin since age six and guitar since age eleven.
Eleven was also the age at which she began dabbling in songwriting, and since then, she’s written candid, passionate music drawing from her life experiences.
While she was knee-deep in the songwriting game, Hopper fell in love with performing as well, and she’s racked up an impressive number of performances at The Bluebird Café, Mcfaddens, The Well, and Meridees, to name a few. Her performances are a mix of original pieces and covers; to which she adds her own special spin.
Hopper’s first album, called Notes on Love and Such and produced by Darkhorse Studio, was released in 2014. The album, which includes her folksy, clear-voiced single “Steal My Heart Tonight,” is currently available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and all major online retailers.
Her new album, Out of the Shadows, was recently released and is also available for your listening and/or purchasing pleasure.
So singer-songwriter is kind of a broad genre; how does Hopper define her music? Her list of influences is extensive, from Coldplay to Sara Bareilles to Taylor Swift.
On her website, she explains that when asked, she’ll usually say, “I don’t know, but I can show you.”
One thing is certain: regardless of genre, Hopper’s charm and heart will win you over. Come out and see her at Puckett’s this Friday.
