Music has a way of connecting us to life events, memories and emotions. Every song written was initially felt, experienced, and birthed by a writer hoping that someone, somewhere, connects with the story or lyrics. Cherie Call’s I am a Homeless Song conveys this passion and dream in a beautiful way.
 
Songwriting is a talent Cherie has been polishing since her early teens.  "I can't keep from writing songs.  It's a huge part of who I am.  Writing songs is kind of how I make sense of my world.  So I'm always going to do it, no matter what," says Cherie Call.
 
In college Cherie picked up a guitar for the first time and realized the acoustic sound was just the medium she needed to bring together her storytelling lyrics and the alt-country genre she loves so much. Cherie says that artists like Alison Krauss, Sarah Groves, James Taylor and Mary Chapin Carpenter and others like them have played a part in shaping her style. Call’s beautifully clear strong voice is a breath of fresh air; decidedly not the “angry barbie sound” as her husband calls that whiney-teen-angst sound that’s been popular for the last decade.
