Growing up on her family’s seventh-generation grain and cattle ranch in California, singer/songwriter Callie Twisselman has country living infused in every fiber of her being. She brings heartfelt and honest lyrics to the country music world, with her own unique sound.
Life on the ranch taught Twisselman the value of hard work. She was up before dawn to feed the cattle, cleaning out stalls, and learning to calf rope and ride horses for competitive local rodeos. This all provided her with the fortitude and fierce determination it takes to make it in the music industry. Her mother was her first influence in the world of music, performing in a local touring country band.
When Twisselman was ten years old, she discovered country music after seeing a video by Shania Twain, one of her biggest influences. From this moment, she knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life. As her love of country music grew, Twisselman began looking to the legends of the genre including Dolly Parton. After she was selected to sing the national anthem at a local fair opening for Bonnie Raitt, she became completely hooked and began singing and performing whenever she had the chance.
By the age of 15, she learned to play guitar and began writing her own songs. In the years following, Twisselman was playing local songwriters rounds and formed her first band. She then spent time traveling to fairs and festivals throughout California. After she graduated high school, her parents flew her to Nashville to record her first EP.
Traveling back and forth from California to Tennessee was tough on the blossoming artist. In 2017, Callie was introduced to the highly accredited manager Danny Nozell. She then decided it was time to make the move to Nashville permanently. Twisselman spent the next year and half honing her skills in songwriting by recording and demoing her music. Again, her resilience paid off when she fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming a recognized songwriter, signing her first publishing deal with Vintern Songs and eone Music Publishing.
Her debut single, “Two Hands,” has set the tone for a full-length EP with 4 new original songs. Working alongside Grammy Award-Winning producer, Aaron Pearce, Callie is solidifying her name with her debut EP Closure. From start to finish, Closure showcases Callie’s ability to draw fans in with her captivating songs and spot-on vocal performance.
Callie Twisselman is the real deal that is ready to excite the sound of female country music.
