Today the ROAR Review is so excited to premiere Callen Miners single 'smile over me'. Drummer and Vocalist Callen Miner has released his first ever single "smile over me" and in doing so, he has stepped into a whole new world. Available for purchase on iTunes this Friday people!!
Having been a drummer for Sydney funk/reggae outfit Nick Saxon & The Elusive Few, this new venture is a far cry from hitting the skins! Miner lays down the drums and vocals on this track and is accompanied by the talents of established Sydney musician Daniel March and Newcastle producer Gareth Hudson.
HOW DID THE TRACK COME ABOUT?
This track was written by Daniel March and both Dan and I have played this song live through Daniels shows and we thought it would be great for me to release it and put a new spin on things to give a vibe that mixed both John Mayer and Roachford inspired sounds. I feel like we have come up with something unique, something that grabs your ears and has that really distinctive sound.
WHO IS THE PRODUCER?
Gareth Hudson is an outstanding producer and musician in his own right. He took me under his wing given that I had never recorded something like this before and really guided me through it all. He has got such a knack for hearing things that a lot of people wouldn't pick up. He has definitely made this song something that I can say I'm proud to listen to.
BANDS SUPPORTED SO FAR?
As drummer I have supported artist like Donovan frankenreiter, something with numbers and James reyne but given the circumstances this being my first single I haven't had any support slots as of yet on the solo side of things but things are in the pipeline and looking positive.
HOW DO WE GET YOUR MUSICAL TREATS?
I'm glad you asked ROAR! You can grab the single on iTunes this Friday by following the link which will be released on my Facebook page and on ROAR Review too!
