Ylia Callan Guitar Bio
Acoustic folk roots and rock singer songwriter from UKI, NSW Australia.
I play mostly fingerstyle and fingerpicking acoustic guitar instrumentals and singer songwriting with some slide blues and soft rock, mainly on a 12 string acoustic guitar in a variety of tunings including standard DADGAD Open C and Low C.
I started recording my own music early in my youth. My dad gave me a secondhand 8 track reel to reel multitrack recorder. In my twenties, I was using mini discs, which are a far cry better and smaller than the 8 track. Nowadays I use mobile phones and a laptop which can produce a better result than the cassette tapes we used to listen in the 1980's and 90's.
I try to write unique songs in the sense that most of my lyrics are a story start to finish without repeating a chorus. Along with guitar fills instead of standard verse chorus verse chorus song structures. The words and meaning stem from what I'm passionate about in life, my experiences and understanding of reality.
