    About King Calaway:

    Six unique voices. Six top-notch instrumentalists. Three different countries. Featuring a half dozen musicians from both sides of the Atlantic, King Calaway is proof that there’s strength in numbers.

    Before coming together in 2018, bandmates Caleb Miller, Chris Deaton, Simon Dumas, Jordan Harvey, Chad Michael Jervis, and Austin Luther all pursued their own solo careers, racking up a long list of milestones — including CMA Awards performances, international tours, session gigs, and BBC TV appearances — along the way. They could all sing. They could all play. And one by one, they all found their way to Nashville, drawn to the city by its rich, diverse music scene.

    That diversity reaches a new peak with King Calaway. A multi-national supergroup of harmony-singing, instrument-playing musicians, the band makes anthemic country music for the modern world. Songs like “World For Two” show the full range of their sound, mixing groove, grit and rootsy stomp in equal doses. In an age when music fans listen to everything, filling their playlists with songs from every corner of the musical spectrum, King Calaway is something new and fresh: a band that both embraces country’s roots and reaches far beyond them.

    There’s no lead singer here. No singular star. Instead, Jordan, Chad and Simon all share frontman duties, backed by thick, multi-part harmonies from Chris, Caleb and Austin. The result is a layered vocal sound that nods to the band’s influences, including the Eagles, Keith Urban, and Ed Sheeran. And just like the Eagles, every member of King Calaway is also an adept, well-rounded musician, from the guitar-playing Caleb — who became a professional studio musician at 13 years old — to Austin, a highly trained bassist who toured the world with multiple acts before joining King Calaway. Simon first earned an audience at home in Gibraltar, with his expressive piano playing and pop-oriented songwriting, while Jordan — a Scottish multi-instrumentalist who played drums before becoming one of King Calaway’s main vocalists — played packed shows in London, Edinburgh, and beyond. And then there’s Chad, a lifelong vocalist whose past includes theater productions and cross-country gigs, as well as Chris, who played drums for performances on the CMA Awards with artists such as Steven Tyler and Jennifer Nettles before keeping time for King Calaway.
