Calla Kinglit is a musician, songwriter and poet who draws inspiration from the awe of wilderness and exploring the human experience. In 2018 she released her debut album comprised of songs written while living as a researcher in the Congo Forest Basin, exploring the vast and redemptive beauty of her home base in the Yukon wilderness, manoeuvring through landslides in the Himalayas, and contemplating the spiritual journey of one small being. Calla’s music is characterized by haunting melodies combined with deep wilderness based lyrics. She is a multi instrumentalist, primarily writing on warm hollow body electric guitar. Calla’s first singles have been on rotation on CBC North. In 2017, Calla received standing ovations for performances at Atlin Arts and Music Festival and Dawson City Music Festival, and placed in the top 25 in CBC Radio’s Searchlight competition. “The appeal of this song [God River Waltz] is borne in Calla’s strong vocal range, both immovable and light, weaving and situated on her band’s stripped-down instrumental composition. The song has a classic sound carrying with it memories of the Canadian folk tradition, while announcing an exciting new voice. Calla will be one to watch.” — Louis Calabro, Canadian Screen Awards/Prism Prize.
