Sometimes you meet people in life and all you want to do is hug them and protect them, Callum Pitt was one of those people for me. A lovely, happy soul writing music because he loves it. New single ‘Forgotten Kids’ is the newest product of his brainwaves and it’s an uptempo ‘sounds-like a happy tune’ yet the message behind it is just a tad bit darker than it might seem. Callum on the subject of the single: “Forgotten Kids is about the rising poverty levels in the UK, it refers to rough sleepers and families having to use food banks, people who have been let down badly by our system.”
When one is able to turn something dark like people sleeping on the street into a sunny popsong, that’s what I call talent. Callum is playing The Great Escape, This Is Tomorrow and Deer Shed. More to follow!
