Derby Cathedral welcome Sam Callahan.
Sam is a 24 year old singer/songwriter from Essex.
He’s been performing since he was eight and he started writing his own music when he was just twelve. Intent, even then, on pursuing a career in the music industry.
In 2013 Sam made it through to the live finals of the UK's X Factor and after getting to the final six he earned his place on the X Factor Arena Tour.
Sam says “The X Factor was an incredible experience but it wasn’t an entirely true representation of who I really am. Now I need to show the world what I’m really about and who I am as an artist in today's music industry”.
Since then, Sam has been performing as an artist non-stop to packed venues all around the world.
Sam says, "My music comes straight from the heart, all written and composed by myself, there couldn't be a better representation of myself as an artist.”
Planning to release new music after selling out Headline gig in London in November 2018, Sam's had a busy holiday season and has big things planned for 2019.
