Calan Watts


Calan Watts is a South African born singer-songwriter currently working and residing in Melbourne, Australia.


A qualified Civil Engineer by day, his love for music and life is carried through his song lyrics, telling a story with timeless melodies and country feel.


Calan’s style of music is inherently indie-folk with some of his recent tracks inspired by modern synths and tropical house, conveying a fresh sound to his music. He has been musically influenced by the great Johnny Cash, Paul Simon and Syd Kitchen however he translates these esteemed sounds, infusing them with young blood and a new approach.

His live performances are vibey, upbeat and unique, and he compliments his warm vocals with acoustic guitar, kick drum and gentle harmonica.


Calan is working on putting together an album in the near future, featuring his hit tracks ‘Love Me’ and ‘African Sky’, which have both had extensive radio play on South African radio. His latest electronica-based track ‘Light Of Day’ has been well received and has an irresistible, smooth dance feel, a perfect compliment to his solo act.


Having featured at many private and corporate events, weddings, birthday celebrations and festivals, Calan’s craft is enjoyed by both the connoisseur music lover and the man on the street. His talent is a rare gift and his songs infectious – his passion is evidence of a true performer.
