Caleb Engstrom

BandFolkRock

Indie/rock meets folk, is the best way to describe his music. A solo performing artist, recording music with both the full sound of a band and the intimate sound of simply guitar/voice. My goal is to create music that will connect. Something that someone can feel and be moved by.

Biography

Hailing recently from Dubuque, Iowa, Caleb Tyler Engstrom at the age of 19, brings his sultry voice and passion for honest music a little further south, landing in the cornfields surrounding Greenville College. Caleb, whose influences include Nick Drake, The Frames, and Ryan Adams, has been writing songs and performing with acoustic guitar since an early age. He has showcased his talent for composing and performing remarkably honest music here at Greenville on campus and at other various St. Louis area venues. His "following" has recently grown because of the spread of mouth and use of the internet. Garageband.com has recently showcased "Shut Up", his recent single, as song of the day for April 9th, 2004. Which meant you saw his face plasterd up on the front of their website for 24 hours. Caleb was aslo chosen as artist of the month for May 2004 by thevoiceonline.com. Purevolume.com has been a great tool for spreading his music as well, with over 700 hits in a short amount of time. And it seems that Caleb is making fans all over campus. "Caleb has a mind built for creative musicianship," declares Joey Lemon of the GC bands the Lemons and Berry. "His songs speak beauty to my soul."

Lyrics

Trust and Faith

Written By: Caleb Engstrom

Living I've heard is learing to die
Loving I'm saying, is how im living

I put my faith into all of these things
I put my trust into everything , except you

I want to be with you as long as I can
Till the end i want to, just wanna love you

I put my faith into all of these things
I put my trust into everything, execept you

Missing

Written By: Caleb Engstrom

The pain of missing you, is a pain i need
The day I quit needing you is a day i dont see

Rememberence of the times we had, warms my heart
Things happen all the time, that trigger thoughts of you

Im missing you
Im feeling you
Im hearing you

Shut Up

Written By: Caleb Engstrom

In real life, some have not been through it
Or they have been through it, and they dont want to listin

In real life were to proud to talk to our mother and too afraid to talk to our father, In real life we dont talk at all

And time, is slipping away
And these dreams, are slipping away

In real life were to proud to talk to our mother and too afraid to talk to our father, In real life we dont talk at all
