Calum Bowie is a popular Edinburgh based singer-songwriter from Banchory, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Since his debut release in 2018, Calum’s presence amongst the Scottish music scene has grown exponentially, with his captivating melodies and authentic lyrics fuelling his uplifting music.

The latest single from Calum ‘Time That I Can Borrow’ is an altogether new experience to his usual stuff. Calum has successfully blended his iconic acoustic singer-singwriter style with a whole new array of instruments, giving it a much bigger, more memorable sound.

“This is by far the most exciting song I’ve made. Everything just seemed to come together to create the upbeat and catchy sound I had in my head. It was really fun throughout – everything from writing it to producing it with the amazing Michael MacDonald. I think for me personally it captures the spontaneous energy I have that gets me up in the middle of the night to go do something instead of lying in bed when I sometimes can’t sleep. It’s a chance for me to be creative and gives me peace and quiet to think about my song writing. I definitely recommend giving it a go if you can’t get to sleep” – Calum.

This is the perfect single to add to your playlist ready to blast out of your speakers during the summer! This single starts with the sound of an acoustic guitar which combined with some other sounds creates a chilled, upbeat sound. You are then hit with Calum’s silvery voice which will have you hooked and listening to every single word Calum sings.

The upbeat sound will have you tapping along and helps to make this single catchy and one you will no doubt have stuck in your head for days.

The lyrics will have you listening to every word Calum sings effortlessly without fail, they work so well together with the singles sound and Calum’s vocals to create a track with a unique and catchy sound.

What I also love about this track is the incorporation of the instrumentals which adds another texture to this already impressive single. The combination of instrumentals and vocals is spot on and for me are well placed to create an impressive summer anthem.
