Callow, consists of Red Moses (lead vocals, guitar), and Sami Knowles (keys, percussion, vocals).
The two combine their musical talents in 2009 after their gardening business went under during America's economic crash. They sold their belongings to live on the road, and they've never looked back. Red is a life-long musician who has been writing music and performing in bands for most of his life. Sami is a professional dancer who has translated her embodied sense of music in an unconventional way; she sings, plays the keys and drums simultaneously.
"Their albums Orb Weaver (2012) and Blue Spells (2013) are elegantly dark and sonically searing collections of songs that create rock operatic overtures with shadowy vocals flowing over the memorable, echo-latent instrumentation. Callow is a chillingly talented duo who has committed their lives to creating music, and influencing audiences with their heavy and vivid art songs."

“Callow = Band of Horses + Roky Erickson + Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. What punk rock would have been had it evolved from The Velvet Underground’s airy slowness rather than their minimalism.”
- SLUG Magazine
"Callow's sound is haunting and beautiful, with angst and tension balanced with primal minimalism."
- San Francisco Chronicle
