Terry Callier – collaborations


With Massive Attack – Live with me

Hardcandy – Advice

Theme from Spartacus (Zero 7 remix)

With Beth Orton – Beautiful world

Born in Chicago on May 24th 1945, Terry grew up singing alongside soul greats Jerry Butler, Major Lance and Curtis Mayfield.

In the late 90s Callier began his comeback to recorded music, contributing to Beth Orton’s Best Bit EP in 1997 and releasing the album Timepeace in 1998, which won the United Nations Time For Peace award for outstanding artistic achievement contributing to world peace. Curiously, his colleagues at the University of Chicago never learned of Callier’s life as a musician, but after the award the news of his secret life became widely known and subsequently led to his firing. Callier today is continuing his recording career having currently released five albums since Timepeace.
