Alternative singer-songwriter Bill Callahan has had a pretty extensive career. With 11 albums released under his band, Smog, and four more released as a solo artist -- including his latest, Apocalypse, released just this month -- he has influenced artists such as John Vanderslice and Cat Power's Chan Marshall, and his music has been featured in British cinema and even on the cult classic soundtrack to High Fidelity. He'll bring his brand of melancholic, dark and introverted indie folk to RecordBar this June.

Using deadpan, often monotone vocals, Callahan is best-known for his lyrical style: free-form, nearly stream-of-consciousness narratives about love, childhood, horses, and occasionally politics. Callahan, who now lives and works out of Austin, Texas, brings personal and introspective flair to his live shows, delivering straight-forward, thoughtful songs in an intimate setting with the audience. Check out a video below of Callahan performing "Cold Blooded Old Times" (the song featured on High Fidelity) at the Lakeshore Theater in Chicago in 2007. Bill Callahan comes to RecordBar on June 29. For more information, visit RecordBar's website.
