band’s forthcoming record. Callers’ Ryan Seaton, “The beat came from a two handed rhythm pattern written while waiting for the A train at Howard station near JFK airport. It’s a song about dancing in all the right and
The third LP from Callers, made up of long time collaborators Sara Lucas and Ryan Seaton, will be released on
October 9th on Partisan Records.
While Sara grew up enveloped by R & B, Motown, gospel and jazz in St. Louis, Ryan was 400 miles away in Little Rock, nurtured by a community of eccentric artists and musicians, collaborating on ad hoc punk shows by the riverbank. Both musicians intuitively grasped the commitment to craft in their peers and mentors, shaping their purpose to create a strong, clear statement of their own.
New Orleans was the place that brought them together, the place where their first song was recorded over a landline, their first EP from a mic hanging on the ceiling fan. Sara’s freedom of expression, her ease of phrasing, the effortlessness and transcendence of her voice drew Ryan to working with her, while Sara was undeniably drawn to his vast arrangements, particular style, and grasp of musical realms.
Providence emerged as the hub for support and sustained creative advice, a second EP recorded amongst ghosts
in the attic, and the source of collaboration with Keith Souza and Seth Manchester of acclaimed recording studio
Machines with Magnets (Battles, Fang Island, Psychic Paramount.) Finally, Brooklyn became the city they now
call home, leading to the creation of two Lps, Fortune and Life of Love.
With Brooklyn also came transition: after offering a new interpretation on Life of Love and Reviver, Don Godwin
amicably moved on from the project at the latter’s completion. Meanwhile, Keith and Seth’s involvement in the
production and development of Reviver thrived, ultimately inspiring them to join the band.
