Our Artist of the Week is SilverSpark.
In the heart of the bustling city of London, a chance meeting brought together the dynamic duo of songwriters, Carley Callaghan and Matt Phillips, marking the beginning of a sonic exploration that would eventually lead them to become the powerhouse known as SilverSpark.
The essence of SilverSpark lies in their genuine love for real instrumentation and storytelling, deeply rooted in the rich traditions of country music. Influenced by some of the greatest storytellers of all time, the duo aims to take listeners on a compelling journey with their music.
Despite the challenges that led them to a temporary pause, Carley and Matt’s passion for their craft has not waned. Now, as they embark on a new chapter, their commitment to the roots of their music is stronger than ever. ‘The Last Time‘, their latest single, serves as a powerful anthem for those who recognise the warning signs in a relationship and understand the need to break free before it’s too late.

Growing up, Matt immersed himself in the sounds of REM, The Eagles, and The Rolling Stones, while Carley found inspiration in the melodies of Patsy Cline and kept Shania Twain, Faith Hill, and LeAnn Rimes on repeat. This eclectic mix of influences forms the foundation of SilverSpark‘s unique and compelling sound.
