It’s been more than a year since Nashville-by-way-of-Atlanta-by-way-of-London singer-songwriter Callaghan last headlined The Altamont Theatre. Back then, she was a newcomer to Music City and still touring in support of Life in Full Colour, the album she’d moved the states to make with producer Shawn Mullins. This year, the single-monikered musician released A History of Now, a dozen lush tracks highlighting her pop-savvy melodies, memorable hooks and upbeat lyrics. “Here we go, walking on sunshine … all we got is all we need,” she sings on “Crazy Beautiful Life,” which seems to encapsulate Callaghan’s own expat adventures and growing musical success. She returns to The Altamont Theatre Friday, Sept. 11, at 8 p.m. $12 advance/$15 at the door. thealtamont.com. Photo by Scott Lowden
