From the Gibson guitars stage at the 2015 CES convention to The Container Park in Downtown Las Vegas, the 25-year-old Calloway has quickly gained steam playing open mics all over the city. He’s also won the hearts of Downtown Project folks, recently earning an invitation to play a DTP- produced Sofar Sounds session and the Gibson Amplified Wine Fest. He draws from legends like John Lennon, 2pac and Bob Marley, and turns to vocal powerhouses like Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and Donny Hathaway for more contemporary inspiration. “Deep down I feel like I have this hippie kind of spirit.”
