Get To Know: Sam Callahan

Last year, Essex born singer/songwriter and Xfactor finalist, Sam Callahan, teamed up with some of the finest producers in the world to produce the remixes of his track “I love it when you” which entered the official Music Week Dance Charts at number 5. Attracting fans with his boyish good looks, soulful harmonies and infectious personality Sam is now back in the recording studio with some exciting plans in the pipeline for this summer!

Describe your personal style… Fresh streetwear with an edgy touch by day, I like my ripped jeans and leather jackets but I most certainly like to dress to impress with a gentleman’s wardrobe by night.

What´s the most important item of clothing in your wardrobe? My leather biker jacket.

Did your parents ever give you any styling tips? Don’t be silly! We are all unique, dressing how YOU want is just another way of expressing and celebrating that individuality. I feel it’s important to put your own stamp on your style.

The Bench #LoveMyHood campaign focuses on city neighbourhoods and the creative people that thrive in them. Where´s your ‘hood? My hood is Brentwood in Essex, just down the road from my birthplace, Chelmsford. I love where I live, the people are a great laugh and I am always sure to surround myself with lots of creative mind sets.

What do you love most about your neighbourhood? The people. In my industry, it’s difficult to know who to trust anymore. But I love my close friends and family who live nearby and I love how they always encourage my madness and creativity to help me progress as an artist in my music.

What’s your favourite local place, and why? My favourite place locally has to be Brentwood Go Karting centre. It’s a wicked place to unwind and destress with some mates at the weekend.

What word describes your ‘hood best? THE PLACE TO BE!
