In times like this, we need something soothing to calm us down: music is the obvious channel. Acoustic streams smoothly deliver us to shore, while poignantly crafted melodies search for an oasis among the hustle and bustle of our life. Considering our current situation, we just need a place to recover. On his latest single, Callan John offers that to us, a moment’s rest.
While A Home She Made speaks to love from within the silky tones of indie-folk, the track itself captures the mood of the moment perfectly. Delicate, enchanting, therapeutic, the Sydney-based singer/songwriter has delivered listeners a haven unfurled in the lush gardens of his sonic.
Callan John has released a song for the times. An aching ode to love, A Home She Made welcomes you into nourishing soundscapes and glistening melodies that cast away any anxieties.
Co-produced by Tim Carr (Matt Corby) earlier this year, A Home She Made takes you on a journey, a sojourn through the most beautiful parts of life. While the track’s sonic has certainly elevated under our current conditions, John explores the intricacies of a long-distance relationship through his poetic lyricism.
“Its purpose: to convey the message that although physically separated by vast geographical distances and a seemingly endless stretch of ocean, nothing could ever come between their inextricable connection,” the song’s bio details.

10 years ago I met a girl who was travelling around Australia. She was only here for a few short weeks but the time we spent together left an impression that would last long after she’d journeyed back to her home on the other side of the world. 🌏 ▪️ Missing her terribly and wishing we could reunite someday, I wrote ‘𝐀 𝐇𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐒𝐡𝐞 𝐌𝐚𝐝𝐞’ to that girl hoping to communicate a very specific message. Now, after a decade of incubation, the song forms the 4th part of our story and it has 𝐉𝐔𝐒𝐓 𝐆𝐎𝐍𝐄 𝐋𝐈𝐕𝐄 on @spotifyaunz (in Australia) 🥳 ▪️ So if you want to hear the heartfelt words of a love-sick, much-younger me, click the link in bio, have yourself a listen 🎧, give it a little “♡” and pop it in a playlist. ▪️ Whether you love it or loathe it, I wanna know what you think so PLEASE leave your thoughts in the comments! 😘 ▪️ P.S. if you don’t live in Australia and can’t wait ‘til 10am tomorrow, just leave an “I CAN’T WAIT” below I’ll tell you where you can listen to it right now x . . . #newsongalert #newmusicfridays #newmusician #newmusicartist #talentedmusicians #musicflow #acousticmusic #indiemusician #music4life #musicflow #acousticmusic #instagrammusic #discovermusic #musicdiscovery #lovesongs❤️ #amazingvoices #australianmusic #discovernewmusic #sydneymusic #folkpop #ausmusic #aussiemusic #indiepopmusic #indiemusicians #triplejunearthed #acousticsong #lovemusic🎶#releaseradar #spotifyartists #indiefolkmusic
The way the songwriter navigates these themes is nothing short of a masterpiece. Acoustic melodies create the perfect channel for his poignant lyrics to shine through, while the spacial bounds of indie-folk spin every note into a glistening realm.
A Home She Made is the perfect prelude to John’s 9-track mixtape L89, set for release later this year.
