"Caleb Engstrom is one of the most powerful new songwriters of the new year. A relatively undescribed gem you will surley be hearing more and more about soon." "Caleb will remind you of the best in Pedro The Lion, Sufjan Stevens, Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters & Sun Kil Moon)"

Biography

Dropped into college. Dropped out of college. Dropped a self-produced and previously self-released album with Right Place Records. Dropped some mouths while performing over 150 shows in the past year on 3 independently booked tours, playing with many bands and performers, more notable ones like Pedro the Lion, Andrew Bird, The Appleseed Cast, Catfish Haven, Dennison Witmer, and Owen.

Hailing currently from Iowa City, IA (having dropped back in this spring to the University of Iowa), Caleb doesn't have great expectations for overnight success, but he is more than willing to pay his dues. With a break from school this summer, a new-found faith that his car won't break down, and most recently as an addition to The Nicodemus Agency's booking roster (Headlights - Polyvinyl, Liz Janes - Asthmatic Kitty) Caleb will be out on the road playing 60 some shows consecutively, traveling everywhere from NYC to LA.

"I guess with all of this," he says, "I'm just trying to do something honest."

Six

Your face mine
Her place fine

During the building day one
Designed for the chance to here some one

Keys type smile
Drive spoon cry

Ok

Written By: Caleb Engstrom

Ok please not today
I need to feel you near

You’re the one thing that stays the same
No I mean you’re the one thing that is forever changing

Ok today is the day
And I am proud to announce

You’re the one thing that stays the same
No I mean you’re the one thing that is forever changing

Katie's Song

Written By: Caleb Engstrom

When I think of all the things that make my heart beat
You are the first thing that I think of

Will you walk with me and hold my heart in your hands
Yeah talk to me

When I think of all the things that we’ve done and whats to come
I cant help but think its part of some plan

Will you walk with me and hold my heart in your hands
Yeah talk to me
