Loretta Callens began her journey through music at an early age. She credits her parents with fostering a love of music which shows in each performance. Music critic Tom Geddie, of Buddy Magazine, gave a positive review of her first album “Strayz” stating “Callens can sing”.
Several of Loretta’s recordings received air play on east Texas radio stations, 104.1 The Ranch, 95.3/102.3 The Breeze and KNON Dallas.
In Loretta's early musical days she performed in folk duet Firelight, with Pine Hill Bluegrass and two east Texas southern rock bands.
Loretta presently performs at Wineries, Coffee Houses, Art Events, Festivals, retirement/nursing centers and Private Events in central and east Texas.
Her performance songbook is filled with an eclectic genre' of originals, written by her and or other independent Texas artists, along with songs from the oldies to the not so distant past.
Loretta produced nineteen outdoor festivals during the 80s and 90s. She co-founded and produced the 2009 and 2010 Texas Independent Music Expo.
Loretta’s latest project, “Sentimental Journey” Improving Lives Through Music, raises funds to provide entertainment to low income retirement and nursing centers. See details at www.sentimentaljourneymusic.org
In May of 2011 Loretta released a new CD "Life Is Good" along with a companion wine by the same name produced by Texas Roads Winery. The wine is a moscato, light and crisp with a hint of fruit, sweet but not too sweet. kinda like Loretta!
