Under the pseudonym of Henry Miller, young musician Callum Beckford is conquering a variety of genres spanning from glam rock, dubstep, ambient, and even blues. Graduate of Rundle Academy and current pupil of Alberta College of Art and Design, the reputable artist has seemingly found the perfect balance between his academics and passion for music – and avid followers of his soundcloud (such as myself) couldn’t be happier. Tracks ‘Dr. Strange Acid’, ‘Light REM Sufocation’ , and ‘Jaming Moves’ are rough around the edges in all the right ways, while ‘Beat Grage’ and ‘Vampsy’ give fans a peek into his unique vocals that carry dreamy resonation. His latest release, a beautifully executed cover of Coheed and Cambria’s IROBOT’, provided listeners old and new alike concrete proof of his unlimited potential in the music industry. Callum Beckford’s songs don’t have much in common, but one aspect they share is the striking sense of immersion achieved when played. It’s a welcome escape that’s become so hard to find in today’s music.  No one is quite sure where the name Henry Miller will go, but one thing is for certain, his exploration of the various styles of symphony is a journey worth following.
