Rising Stars: Meet McCall

Today we’d like to introduce you to McCall.

Hi McCall, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I started playing guitar and writing when I was nine, decided that was all I ever needed to care about, dropped out of high school to go online while I worked at a studio in Buford, GA, went to USC for a brief moment before dropping out AGAIN, and am now writing music for myself and others.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Soooo smooth. I’m clocking in at only four mental breakdowns a year, which is honestly pretty good in my opinion.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I’m pretty unknown, but people tend to say that I’m a quick writer. When I dropped out of high school, I started writing at least one song a day to get used to the feeling of finishing something in a timely manner – even if, at the time, it was horrid, stinky garbage. These days, I’m really excited by producing for myself and other artists, and I just started editing my own live visuals as well. I’m a slut for some good projection mapping, even though I’m mediocre at best currently.

What would you say have been one of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
Post your silly little video, and log it out. You’re not a bad person for not being online 24/7 and you’re not going to miss anything that isn’t meant for you by choosing to work on your art rather than see what other artists are accomplishing.
