Calum Graham: “Indivisible”

Canadian Guitar Festival 2010: Finalist 1, Song 1 – 1st Place

Here’s a live video recording of Calum Graham at the contest winning it with this song and performance called Indivisible.


Born in British Columbia, and raised in the small town of High River, AB, Calum Graham started playing the guitar at the age of 13. He attributes growing up in a talented family and always being surrounded by different forms of musical and artistic expression, in further influencing the development of his unique style of music. But Graham’s first foray into his own individual musical expression was not a result of his classically trained guitar work, it was teaching himself how to play finger-style guitar; a decision which he never looked back from.

In 2009 and at only 17 years of age, Graham recorded his first instrumental studio album titled “Sunny Side Up”. Later that year he was the Grand Prize Winner of the Calgary Stampede Talent Search, a success that entered him into the Canadian Youth Talent Competition in P.E.I that same year. A surprise to no one, Graham landed another first place victory, whose past winners include Michael Buble’.

Along with a select list of other musician, Graham was invited to be a representative of Alberta Music for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. Later that year, Graham would include another victory to his musical resume, only this time for one of his original compositions. In the summer of 2010 not only did Graham impressed the judges of the 2010 Canadian Guitar Festival, he won their first place title – a feat that no other teenager has ever accomplished in the Festival’s history. 

As his confidence grew and his style developed, Graham soon saw a loyal following begin to grow and he became a popular local hit in the Albertan music scene. His natural talent of incorporating a variety of musical harmonies into his songs only added to his appeal. It wasn’t long before his unique finger style sound with a modern-age twist started to find an appreciative audience.

Soon after realizing that making music was his main goal, Graham began to showcase his talent in various venues across Alberta, ensuring that both his name and music were being heard by as many people as possible. It wasn’t long before he was quickly noted for the unique style that he brought to the music scene, and his popularity continued to grow. read more here
