About Mushy Callahan
Alberta Natives, Mushy Callahan are taking the Toronto music scene by storm. A literal band of brothers, Noah (lead vocals, guitar), Joel (drums, vocals) Lucas (lead guitar, vocals, synth-keys) and Jacob (bass) began making music together when they were children. After pulling up stakes and moving from Northern Alberta to Toronto, Mushy Callahan released their debut EP, Man On The Run. Their record leans heavily on classic rock as an influence and the beefy bass riffs, arena-quality guitar solos, and booming vocals turn this into indie rock with umph.
