“Echoing the lighthearted and spirited scene of Folly Beach, the ragtime sounds of local musician Nathan Calhoun have finally found their way into an album. As the energetic front man for Calhoun’s Calling, a cover act seamlessly rendering classic songs from the Foo Fighters to Jack Johnson, Nathan has embarked on a solo career and is awaiting the release of his debut E.P, Carolina Breeze. “It’s easy going and I really don’t have any expectations,” says Nathan of the aptly-named album. “It’s definitely a stepping stone.” Elements of swing, folk, and jazz are evident throughout the seven-track album, often featuring delicate acoustic melodies unfolding alongside the soothing sounds of a saxophone and the light pitter patter of drums. To check-out Nathan’s upcoming shows, view photos, or contact the down-to-earth musician, visit www.nathancalhoun.com ”

"Elements of folk, swing and jazz seep into Nathan’s style, creating a wholesome sound reminiscent of Steely Dan and Simon and Garfunkel, and gentle percussion fluttering alongside lush melodies often serve as a canvas for the musician’s earnest lyrics."
